RC: The big question, for RX10 Mk1 owners like me, is: Is the RX10 Mk2 worth the switch or not? I really like my RX10 Mk1 but I wish the camera had a faster operating/focusing speed and better low light capabilities.
So here's the big question: Is the new one worth a switch from the old one, or not? I just wish DPreview had a review ready.

All I want to see is how much better the EVF is.
I almost can not imagine it to be better than RX10I, as it is just amazing.
As I don't do video, I will not be changing for this one.

Maybe consider it if RX10III has a longer lens??
But, no rush. I'm very happy to keep my RX10I with all of my other Sony MKI models I still have and use.

Create: Personally, I hate pictures taken under bright daylight conditions like most of these were no matter what camera was used, they just look blah to me, considering that, i think the images look pretty good. I would like to see some overcast day shots, as well as morning and evening shots, they have more life to them, but hey that's just me putting my two cents in there, yeah i know it's about the camera, i think that Sony makes great products, by the way i own Canon, Nikon, Pentax and Sony cameras so i'm not biased, but yeah i'm out of control!

It's not the camera, it's the photographer that creates the image.

Completely agree here, the haze is more than likely from these full on sunlight images, and better times of the day could have been selected.

ric63: Well after seeing those images I will definitely NOT be rushing out to buy a RX10II.
My RX10 would slap this silly.
I agree with Jeff Greenberg, a comparison would be great, and I know which one would win straight away.
If your not into video or slow mo, get an RX10 before they are gone.
I have always laughed at people saying "oh no never buy the first of a new model, Ill wait till the second one"
I have had A100, H1, HX100 and now RX10, all first models, all take amazing images, and all had poor effort second models.

I have posted many galleries from my travels with the RX10 I was traveling for 4 weeks and took just over 18,000 images. This was in rain, snow, and temps down to minus 12 in Poland.
Luckily my wife kept the batteries for the camera in her bra, as ice cold batteries just don function :-)
Some stupid indoor shots at extremely high ISO are fantastic images, and the Porsche Pavilion images generated many comments on the amazing low light capability of my RX10.

Agree fully with RFS comment, its exactly as I mentioned as well.

LOL
I totally agree photomedium, the wife wasn't happy at all when I first looked at the RX10, however I managed to get a good price at the airport about 1 month after it's release here in Australia, but she loves doing photo books of our trips, and when she saw what it delivers, she was quiet from then on :-)

I understand the sensor in RX10II is different to RX10I in its construction?

I do feel my copy of RX10I would slap the one used in the gallery, as I simply do not get that hazy images and so forth shown in the gallery, But maybe it was just one of those days (which we all have) where you just cant get a decent image. I just don't think the gallery for this is representative of how good a picture the RX10 can get.

Great images, taken by someone who loves photography.
Taken on a great camera and this new lens that is obviously great as well.

Sick of some here that just want to find fault in everything posted about anything.

What other lens at this price (or any other lens for that matter) stacks up being scrutinised at full res on a 51mp camera?

Who is man enough to put them on the line for that type of scrutiny?

Well done Rishi, I enjoyed looking at all of the images.

TriezeA72: With Canon's EVF'less junk, and this nice but limited in reach expensive RX10ii, it really makes the FZ1000 stand out as the best value for money in this category of cameras, you get reasonable reach, 4k, sharp lens, great AF and an EVF for $600/700

Agree with the value for money comment. The Sony is WAY to expensive.
A shame really.

fwandy: Quite dissapointing quality, I was all set to purchase this camera but these samples have totally put me off. Really looks well overpriced for the output.

Rush out and buy the RX10I before they are gone, you wont be disappointed.

ric63: Again, SOOC is more pleasing and accurate.

I know my RX10 would have done a better job, I have posted some images here taken at horrendously ISO and looked great, with some comments noting same.
I just question this new stacked sensor now??

I think the SOOC image is far better, yes a tad dark, but the adjusted one looks muddy, messy and noisy.
Just a simple tad of brightness would have done the trick.

CharlesBos: No touchscreen for fucus pulling and a lot of slomo !? I think i buy the FZ1000 for half the price. I do not believe the RX10II will be a success. Only if the image quality is visibly better. We shall see.

BOOM!

ric63: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

Sony will buy out/take over Canon within 2 years!
Same old Same old-------------------------------------

They are only protecting their interests.
How can a company about to fold due to no new or interesting products for how long now, keep buying sensors and tech from Sony?
So, keep it viable with Sony cash, its win win for Sony.

In reply to:

ric63: Still no tilt/swivel screen Canon??
C'mon now!

Fair enough.
I do a lot of ground level shooting and for me it's almost essential.

This is just Canon supplying lightly made over units and saying "hey we're Canon I'm new buy me" They should at least start supplying basic things on their cameras that compare with the opposition. A tilt / swivel screen is just a basic norm that other companies supply, but as it would cause Canon a headache to re design the body, they simply won't do it.. So how interested are Canon in providing something really new? Not very, just a few bits here and there and say I'm new. Cop out really.
