Siddharth: At $250 it actually competes with all compacts with very limited zoomsNikon Coolpix S800 seriesCanon Powershot series (not all)Even Sony H400 is more expensive..
This looks like a clever product strategy...
Anyway, what are the price of the same cameras of other brands?
Canon PowerShot SX50 HS - 400 USD, Lumix DMC-FZ200 - 600 USD, Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V - 470 USD, Nikon COOLPIX P600 - USD430, Fujifilm FinePix S1 - USD400
lets see it at Bhfotovideo some time later
No. 250 pоunds = 250 US dollars in USA.
caver3d: Unfortunately, the Sony and Panasonic superzooms with the 1" sensor are going to kill this Pentax in the marketplace. I'm surprised that Ricoh went ahead and announced this camera. The only reason some of you will buy the Pentax is because of the price (and I am not anti-Pentax as I have a Pentax K30).
Nonsense. It's 250 USD camera. RX10 is 1000 USD. FZ1000 is 900 USD.
250USD is nothing to discuss. It's not bad for such money.
ogl: I like FZ1000 samples more than RX100MKIII.
Of course, Captain Obvious! :))))
You are funny man...:) D800E - stay with it...:)
Strange remark...The camera has OIS - it's switchable.
I like FZ1000 samples more than RX100MKIII.
ogl: 1" sensor is becoming the new trend...Good.
I mean 1" is good for bridge cameras and for top-compacts. Maybe it could be standart for many compact cameras. 1/1.7" could rest in past. Even 2/3" can't reach IQ of 1" sensor at all ISO. Smaller sensors can compete at minimal ISO with 1", but it's all. As for FZ1000 - I like the samples more than RX100MKIII.
1" sensor is becoming the new trend...Good.
ogl: RX100III's IQ is the level of top compact cameras with 1/1.7" sensor.
RX100III is very expensive.
LX7 - please http://www.penta-club.ru/forum/uploads/post-25954-0-48937800-1401040705_thumb.jpg
Of course, see Q7 gallery - you can find something the same.
LX7 is worse, maybe, at high ISO, but only masochist use P&S camera at high ISO. At low ISO in JPEG no any serious difference.
m4/3 is far better than Sony.
RX100III's IQ is the level of top compact cameras with 1/1.7" sensor.
GX1 Mark II looks much better at low ISO
It's strange, but samples are really good. :) Good job of 1" sensor in hands of Samsung.
Not interesting photos
mike kobal: Sorry, but a sensor size of 44x33mm cannot be called medium format by traditional definition.This is a APMFS-C sized sensor (Advanced Photo Medium Format System type-C)
By the way, m4/3 is very close to APS-C in terms of IQ with very small size of bodies.
falconeyes: This will become the camera with best image quality ever made up to today!
(in terms of DxOMark, it should score around 105 Overall Score and 50MP, even though the jump from 35mm is small (0.79 crop)).
I hope that Ricoh releases the marketing money needed to make this a bold statement for Pentax being overall leader in IQ. The brand needs a bit of hype to make a come back, esp. in the US.
Falconeyes is scientist, no any sense to argue against him.
