bzanchet: SOOC Jpegs looks much noisier than the original RX100.
Hi Rishi thanks for the feedback, much helpfull!
SOOC Jpegs looks much noisier than the original RX100.
bzanchet: Original RX100 is still the best of the 4 four cameras for stills, much less noise, more natural, organic.
Organic = less artificial.If you need na evf on a compact camera I know what is your type:There you are with a beautiful girl (assuming you ever had one) and she is waiting for you to take her picture. Then you take about 5 minutes adjusting all the camera's settings. After taking a "quick" picture you open your bag and try several lenses on your refurbished canon 60D.Then you tell her that you are going to post process all the images at home and email her in about two weeks.Then, when she cant stand it anymore, you start explaining the diferences between jpeg and raw.At the end of the day, the pictures of your naked girlfriend taken by your gardner on his cel phone would still be much better than yours.

bzanchet: Looks a huge evolution on skin tone. I have the mkI and returned the mkIII for the horribble greeny yellowish skin tones. Put the 4 Sony RX100 on comparison mode and check the skin tones: http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/image-comparison/fullscreen?attr18=daylight&attr13_0=sony_dscrx100&attr13_1=sony_dscrx100m2&attr13_2=sony_dscrx100m3&attr13_3=sony_dscrx100m4&attr15_0=jpeg&attr15_1=jpeg&attr15_2=jpeg&attr15_3=jpeg&attr16_0=80&attr16_1=100&attr16_2=125&attr16_3=125&normalization=compare&widget=1&x=0.8561918837997943&y=0.17838178758974127Still the mkI is the winner, but the mk4 looks pretty close.
I have no issues on mkI lens, dont believe all you read on web my friend.

Finally a 28mm lens, perfect for me, definitey selling my rx1 because of this, amazing!!Wish it had a built in flash though, would have been the ultimate camera.
Wow impressive sharpeness and color!! Beautiful girl too!
Looks a great camera for me, beautiful design, light, cheaper than XT-1, I will try it. Hopefully it has a much better af than the XE-2, wich I sold for that and got the A6000.I just hated the super hyped Sony A6000 as it got the worst ooc Jpeg I have ever seen, the worst skin tones ever (no, I dont shoot raw).Difficult to choose between this and the EOS M3.
Brilliant camera! Maybe next year we might have a built-in flash and a articulated screen. That would be the best compact ever. Unitl then I will keep my RX-100 for its compactness or maybe try the Canon G7X.Ps: beautiful hands of the woman holding the camera.
Wow! Sony is producing the sharpest cameras on the Market IMO. Some better lenses would have made their cameras the best availabe.
The Studio shots as Always doesn't mean anything.
Real life are very very diferent.

They are afraid that a gold medal on this could steal DSLR and ILCs sales for them.
B1ackhat: Nice updates, but the horribly inaccurate color (which remains unfixable in raw in most cases), poor AE system, senseless auto behavior (e.g. often choosing too slow a shutter speed), and nearly nonexistent IS still persist. I still think the RX100s are all great cams, but I am frustrated by Sony's seeming inability to fix these very basic problems. :/
I love the images on my RX100, the IQ is astonishing, but the colors could be better. I shoot always on Landscape color mode, the colors looks better this way, but not perfect.
SeeRoy: When the VF's "popped up" there's an empty space in the camera which it occupied when it was "popped down". So why not integrate it in the first place? Less vulnerable mechanical complexity. Gimmick.
A 16:9 LCD with na EVF built in on top of it would have been better. Maybe on the RX200 with 4K video.
Best compact camera ever!Too bad the DPreview staff keeps pointing more the cons than the pros. I dont understand why do they have so much difficulty accepting the greatness of the RX100 cameras.I just hope Sony has improved the colors tone curve.This camera makes people carrying DLSR with large lens on their necks looks more and more stupid.
I`ve never seen the DP staff reply so much on the comments section :)
IMO the quality and portability of the RX100 got a big chuck of Sony`s own ILCs sales. I think Canon did not want that to happen, so they keep releasing cameras like this and the EOS-M, with IQ far inferior than their DSLR.
Ps.: I dont understand why manufacturers lately are always setting mutted colors as defaults. I believe that are still a lot of photographers that use Jpegs. My OMD-EM5 got the best auto colors I`ve ever seen.
bzanchet: Wel, that is it. I love the DPreview web site, but I started having doubts after the images from my Sony RX100 were so much better than the samples posted here. I recently bought the Canon G1XmkII even though I didnt like the images posted here, and again, my jpegs were wonderfully better than the ones taken by the reviewer. I was following the shooting experience with the a6000 from the image-resource web site and was considering the camera. Today, I saw the images here and again, they were diferent from the other web site samples. I dont know if it is the photographer, but here the pictures seems always out of focus, always mushy and grainy, except from the high end Canon and Nikon full frame cameras.Also the other web site you can compare side by side pictures, multiple studio shots with a lot of diferente settings and cenarios, as with the DPreview you have only one studio scene.Sorry guys, I am searching on others places from now for my upcoming cameras.
Mr. David Julian, I will post my impressions on the forum! Thank you for the reply!
Timbukto are you the architect from the universe? You know everything about everything wow! Just need to learn to stop crying :)
