In reply to:

xenofotofun: The RX100 series….: the digi throw away cam of the new millennium; a clever $$$ fleecing plan for the P.S. fan sheep from your Sony photo-God! Third evolution and still no wether-dust sealing; once the dust gets in its time for the garbage. At this price range it should have been included from the start….
waiting for more useful improvements until I buy or perhaps Pana or Fuji will deliver the right P.S. "common sense" is over taken by greed…..

Geez
Just like the others. "I might wait 3 years to see what comes out"
Are you still using a .8mp camera from 1998?

What a shame, all those years having fun and enjoyment trying new things wasted!

photo perzon: Still a tiny sensor compared to m4/3 and aps-c no?

Ahhh of course it's smaller??

Look at what is jammed into this small pocketable marvel.

Like the RX10, this is a game changer that the opposition simply can not match.

srados: I hate electronic viewfinder.When I look into, my eye focus on the grid on the screen...from what the screen was made off. #1 reason that keeps me away from Sony.

We agree on so many things Cass.
Even my A700 is ridiculous now compared to RX10 EVF.
JUst wish they put the NEX6/A77 OLED into it :-(

Scottelly: I can't believe the key differences table above does not include the new "standard-style" hot shoe! The old A77 had the proprietary Sony slot-style hot shoe. WTF?

WTF?
No panorama?

Michael Ma: Sometimes GPS comes in handy when trying to remember exactly where you took it.

I think people are oversensitive to private data that no one would ever care about. OK, so you went to Yosemite National Park and a TGIF for a company dinner. Guess what, no one cares.

To be honest if someone can't remember where they took there photos then they may have a bit of a problem.
I have had GPS on many cameras and switch it off the moment I get it.
The only thing I thought it might be good for was constructing a world map with some points where I have been, but I can do that without the GPS function. To me anyway it's a croc of----------

You REALLY need to look into a modern OLED EVF on these Newer Sony. You can comment back here after doing so. I'm sure you will be impressed. There are no grids, lines or anything they are just wow!

Sony hit the nail on the head years ago with it's take on live view by using a second image sensor and not lifting the mirror which was and still is so old fashioned on some other cameras. The SLT is a great evolution and innovation that other manufactures seem reluctant to do. Sony tries all sorts of new an innovative things. Some are good some are not, but they keep on trying.

Treeshade: Could this be the long-awaited D400 (D9300) and EOS 7D mk2 ?
( No. Those who want a D400/7D2 are often too heavily invested into the lens system to switch.)

The speed is achieved due the the Sony being an SLT not SLR. It has no moving mirror to contend with so this is where the speed advantage lays.

MarcLee: My God, the comments here remind me why I increasingly rarely visit this site. I wish DPReview would give users the option to turn off all comments and only see professionally written material.

This is one of those cameras that most who have it in their hands love, and that mostly gets trashed by people determined to justify sticking with what they have/their brand of choice.

It is the best portable of its size I have owned and performs small miracles. And yes, I have used the Fuji X10, the original G1X, and both RX100s.

I've also been with the G Series since the G3, but have hardly taken them out since the first G1 X upped the anti for all.

Still, I love seeing people not using great tools. It just makes my photographs even more competitive.

I know you guys are Canon users and I have had a good read of the Canon forums during the night and I can see why your opinions are like they are.
Howard & Marc, I completely see what you are saying and I have to admit I'm shocked.
The Sony Cybershot forum is not like that at all.
Yes people give feedback that is honest but in a far more constructive way, and never like some of the comments from some of the Canon users.
Marc, the mine is bigger than yours mentality is alive and we'll over at the Canon pages.
People do want to be better photographers but I feel with some of the Canon folk treating some posters the way they do, it would just hurt and turn the people off.
The Sony Cybershot forum certainly does not give people grief over what model they have or have posted images using them.
Good luck with the G1X mkI I guys, and girls it looks like a trick bit of gear :-)

Marc,
If you are that upset with this site, and give your opinion on it's members, their views, photographs and comments that offend you why even attend?

Your comments seem bitter and quite childish.
You mention the mine is bigger than yours mentality at DPReview, and that it's full of retired 50-60 year old querulous males. By your replies you seem more petulant than any I have read here before.

People are entitled to their opinions and sometimes we just take the good with the bad, but those that have some age and experience don't take them to heart.

Try smiling when you read some things that may offend or upset you, it makes you feel better about life Marc.

Photomonkey: The new A7s will be the darling/demon of the moment....until the next shiny thing comes along.

I think I understand what he was trying to say.
No matter what Sony does it's just not good enough. As he said darling or demon, people will slag the hell out of this as they are scared sony will outdo their CanNikons and that this will help in the downfall of their idols. I have a friend who continuously slags Sony products and says oh another Sony gimmick. In fact wasn't the first digital cameras just a "gimmick" in the eyes of the film camera people?
These people are afraid of anything different, and it's people like that who would stop the world turning if they could. Sony keep punching and having a go, some work, some fail, all gimmicks at some stage but look where we are now. I still laugh at people that still say oh digital is still not as good as film. What a load of BS. Film was overtaken years ago.
Anyway I'm just saying that I see what he was saying as anything new is made out as a demon from most, and it's mainly the Sony product that cops it. At least they are innovating
