Angus Rose: I've waited sooo long for this camera!And I'm not bothered that it lacks an EVH, and it'll probably bring down the price.
@rpm40 you obviously didnt bother to try the tiny VF with your own eye :) My eye was like..wow :D Maybe you'll rethink the statement on some bright sunny day ;)Competition is a good thing. Probably its going to pull down the sony price, so bring it on, canon :) As for the preference: you prefer the longer reach, others prefer the EVF...and thats perfectly ok...theres no universal truth...
please educate me..in which regards was RX100 a copy of S-series? I always thought that the uniqueness of the RX comes from pushing a (relatively) large sensor into a compact body :) Which is the S-series camera that was copied by sony? Please tell me, cause I obviously missed it...
;) well, honestly said, I like that 2.8 at the long end my self. However EVF was the thing that I was waiting for, soo RX100 III all the way...
Im just curious... from what I see this is basically a copy of sony rx100 II...seems to be using the same sensor too. Have you been waiting till it gets a canon sticker? :)
there are currently 2 native FE-mount primes: 35mm and 55mmpeople rant about lack of the lenses for FE...so we get a second 35 mm and another 50mmhm....not sure the ranting was understood correctly :D
Neal Hood: I don't typically use my compact for video but, it appears this new RX 100 is the camera to have if one routinely uses it for video. Really nice feature set and performance.
I appreciate the rather frequent dpreview updates to this camera in preparation for the full review. It provides good insight and allows time to digest the features and capabilities (and limitations).
@Menneisyyssorry, cant really appreciate it..I dont do video :D
@Menneisyys yes, we know, you posted it like 13 times already :D....get a life....
Marvol: "There have been minor tweaks to the UI, there hasn't been as much change as we were hoping for"
One feels another Silver Award coming...
DP reviewer thoughts: "how many silver medals do we have to give to the (by far) best compact camera until they will make the UI to our taste"seems that DP is not so influencing as they like to think. the cam will be a bestseller despite another dprev silver :)
Gonini: its getting bigger and heavier, not nice
let the ranting begin...its getting what people have been asking for! build in EVF+faster lens...you have to have a slight weight gain.Actually, with such noticeable improvement, its quite amazing sony managed to keep almost the same size as V2, just 3mm thicker and 9 grams heavier
"I've not yet had much chance to really test the camera's autofocus system".OMG and what was the reviewer testing...image quality??...IQ is definitely not the point of this camera (cause it will be more or less the same as previous NEXes, we all know that). What is the important bout this little fella is the AF....THAT is the main difference over the previous NEXes...and thats what the reviewer should focus on (especially after the strong words from sony about it being the fastest in the world)...because of this, I find this preview to be useful as an ashtray on a motorbike
oh mygodso many ridiculous comments full of jealousy."he just photoshops mediocre potraaaiiiitss" meeeh meeeh :Dyou guys are funny (/pathetic)(I saw an article somewhere describing how reading comments might be harmful to your heath...perhaps I should obey this advice)
just laughing at the "gear in this story"1 person already has it (at the time of announcement) and one "had it"...some time-travelers on this web :):)
as for the new cam: couldnt care less about the 4K, but I have a feeling that we can see a new ISO performance king (by a quite noticeable margin)...go sony!
Rawmeister: Lets see a serious review on the Sony FE 70-200 f4 OS.It costs 1500 smackers. More than the legendary Canon IS version.
One would suppose it's an even better lens.Pffftttt.
I'm not holding my breath over this vapourware that should define the usefulness of the system. All the other Zeiss for Sony products have been only so-so. Why should things change now, er I mean in the future?
really? you probably mean the 2nd best lens ever tested by dxo (the 55) :) (being dangerously close to the 4000$ otus)I keep being amazed by ignorance and lack of ability to check the facts before stating complete nonsense by some users on these forums...
Scorpius1: Don't understand why so many comments are saying this proves Sony can make glass... this is a Zeiss lens!
well, I read sooooo many times from the sony-haters that the ZA lens have NOTHING to do with zeiss...that sony just bought the licence for the blue logo to put on their glass and bla bla bla...suddenly when the ZA glass gets TOP rating, its not sony anymore, its again Zeiss :D ... you got to love em haters :)
sunrise is also acceptable? :)
Thanks :) One of my favorite ones...
Do you know how long it takes for somebody from the DPreview staff to check ones pending application for the challenges system? Ive applied 4 days ago and no answer yet :( I would really like to join your challenge, but...
