rhurani: Sony san! for me please the same camera without EVF, without tilting of the LCD, without the filter, but with a built-in flash, a 24MP-only FF for 700$. Deal?
This would be caller the original RX1. Not you just need to wait a year for the used price to fall so low.
JurijTurnsek: Most comments read: "I would love it if I had the cash, but since I don't, this camera is rubbish."
A second generation proves that there is a market for such a camera. And you are aware of the alternatives - only the Leica Q. But there are many way to spend $3000 and no one is forcing you to spend it on a RX1RII if you don't want to. Maybe you should google how precise the manufacturing process for this camera is and maybe then you will understand the pricing.
Can anyone point me to the data that shows RX1/R as a flop? These two cameras have incredibly high re-sale value and will have it for the foreseeable future.

4 bodies and 5 lenses? Sounds familiar? ;)
Right now we have multi-shot noise reduction - could this thing do multiple simultaneous shots reduction using multiple sensors? This thing has potential and the form-factor (just add the phone bits) is perfect for the current generation.
A Lenovo Yoga type of a configuration seems the best solution - use the regular laptop mode to adjust all the sliders and input the text and then flip it to a tablet mode and do corrections with a stylus. But the Yoga line lacks pressure sensitivity for the stylus.
The best thing Samyang could do now is to add a chip with EXIF info and a switch for de-clicking the aperture like the Zeiss Loxia series.
And Sony has to release an APS-C IBIS body in the near future.
Paul_B Midlands UK: Was interesting to see, especially the benefits of getting f2.8 or wider, last weekend I hit some limitations with my Sony supawide zoom f4 (ouch) with a6000 and slow to focus is poor light rx10. Note no flash allowed .. Nice too see what the better gear or lens at least can do. Here bad light gig shots and BMXing! https://www.flickr.com/photos/127926668@N02/sets/72157656523732600I have no faith to use iso more than 1250 images seem to degrade too much or maybe that's Sony's rather less impressive jpg engine. Its a reason is like to sell up and move in to maybe high qual m4/3.
You want better high ISO and would move from a APS-C sized sensor to a m43 sensor? You should move to a bigger sensor or a faster lens, like Samyang 12mm f2.0.
If anyone is interested in proper skateboarding photography and can't really skateboard, this two part video feature explains it very well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uenv7PXwvhk
I suggest that Dan gives it a look too.
Francis Carver: May be a great camera for hi-rez stills. However, as for video, all you would need and want is an 8.8 megapixel sensor. For UHD, I mean. For Full-HD 1080p video, 2.2MP will suffice.
This Sony-cam here has got not 8.8 -- but 42 megapixels,. You do the math.
Have you heard of Sony a7s? Also, a7rII has a exactly 8K 16:9 crop, but it is not yet able to downsample it whole during video recording. That will come in the future iterations.
BeaverTerror: Looks like they got lucky. Here's what Half Dome looks like on busy days:
Also, surely there must be some wedding photographers that aren't afraid of height, but that would also lessen impressiveness factor of the story.
AdamT: Any particular reason why the bright outdoor "Downscapes" were shot at ISO400 and ISO800 ? . all it did was make them noisy, 2000th sec shutter speed wasn`t essential I hope
A camera in this price range in 2015 should not exhibit (that much) noise at ISO800.
Just bumblebees being majestic as always ;)
JurijTurnsek: This gives me high hopes for the a7000 release, that won't be so price-prohibitive.
a7rII is full of new features ... but imagine the improvements to the already impressive a6000 AF!
ThePhilips: To make the AF in video really useful, they should start thinking about developing some cheap parafocal lenses.
Sony 28-135 is considered very cheap for a parfocal video zoom.
This gives me high hopes for the a7000 release, that won't be so price-prohibitive.
Looks good, but not much better (if at all) than Nikon D810. Meaning Sony a7r II should be just as good (probably a little better at high ISO) for a lower price and with a slew of other features.
Also, high ISO improvements bring improvements to medium ISO levels too. And if you don't shoot above 6400, you yourself have a limited photographic vision. Natural light exists with a reason.
Operator: At least dpreview is honest enough to mark the article as "Featured Story". Sony must pay a lot for this advertisement.
But, makes perfect sense - in the moment they lose money with the mirrorless cameras. Let's see if A7r II will be a success (personally don't think so) ...
"in the moment they lose money with the mirrorless cameras" - source?
pictureAngst: "Just the other night I was at a candle-lit dinner with my fiancée, a Nikon D810 and Sigma 35mm F1.4 lens, trying to shoot at f/2 to let in as much light as possible while allowing for some wiggle room with respect to AF accuracy. I was, in fact, struggling with AF accuracy, wondering if the optimal AF microadjustment value changes not only with temperature, but also as the color of the primary light source changes"
Rishi, I truly hope your fiancé shares your passion for photography.
I know if I started messing around with a big DSLR during a candlelit dinner with my wife, that camera would end up somewhere a lot darker than candlelit.
In the social media era, your significant other will wait patiently for you the get the perfect shot of an expensive/romantic outing to share as fast a possible. Good thing the Sony has Wi-Fi.
