Wow! Sony is producing the sharpest cameras on the Market IMO. Some better lenses would have made their cameras the best availabe.

One feels another Silver Award coming...

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!

Pictures are grainy, lacks sharpness, colors looks faded... At low Iso, not a big improvement from the G15.

In reply to:

Jaythomasni: Lens - No Color depth. Low Color resolution or color purity. Low contrast. Low sharpness. More Fuji or Samsung color than canon. Greenish pink rendition due to lens coating.
Sensor - Highlights always washed out or blown. any bright object indoor or outdoor quickly become white blob. Retains Shadow details Though. Highlights gone. DR performance not balanced.

If canon can make this lens to L standards as they did with Pro-1. It should overcome some of the sensor size and DR limitation and give an overall excellent package at a price point. Mediocre glass and sensor..Mediocre JAC pic quality.

I agree. This camera was everything I was hoping for, except the IQ is not. Images are just a bit better than the G15.

In reply to:

pacnwhobbyist: First of all I think image quality from this camera is excellent. I have analyzed and scrutinized the sample photos 6 ways from Sunday and I find very little to criticize. While not worlds apart, they are a bit better than the Sony RX100 II at closer inspection. Especially the ISO3200 shot.

However, one thing I have noticed from the pictures from this camera vs. the RX100 II...the RX100 II's photos seem to "pop" a little more than the Canon's. The color and contrast are a little more dramatic from the Sony. That might be in part due to the Zeiss lens. The Canon still has nice (and very accurate) colors and I can see how a lot of people would find that more appealing over the Sony. But, me personally, I can't help but like the look of the RX100 II's photos a little better. Maybe I might change my mind once I see more of what the G1X Mark II can do.

I agree! And RX100 is much more portable.
Maybe tweaking the settings on GX1mkII could help achive better images.

bzanchet: Seems a pretty decent camera. But I think that 100% crop images are very soft and grainy (reminded my old S100), not much detail as I hoped for a camera with this sensor. RX100 is smaller, cheaper and has better 100% crop details, and more mega pixels to crop the image.
Even with the crappy image from the studio scene from dpreview, I bought a RX100. Not one of my shots are like the studio scenes, real life pictures are much much better. I was thinking of buying a GXmkII, but now I`ve changed my mind.

I have to agree with you my friend, RX100 colors on auto mode or P mode standard are awful!
I dont shoot raw or post processing, so after some trials, I set on P mode Landscape all the time, and I got the best colors ever from all the cameras I`ve had, much richer than my old S100 and T5i, even the skin tones.
Give it a shot! Lol.

Another great inovation!

The 1" sensor killed the 1/1.7"...

I love the IQ/Pocketability of the 1" sensor cameras.

On Nikon 1 V3: a quick summary article (597 comments in total)

Seems like a great camera, maybe not for everyone.

I love the idea of the evf bundled. I prefer a slim camera with an optional evf, than a chuncky one with a evf built in.

I will wait for the reviews and for the price to drop, everyone knows they will eventually, I dont understand why always this whinning.

topstuff: Image Quality is not fantastic. Seems on a par with my RX100.

I do not think it really matters here.

I think I will buy one, if only because of G.A.S.

Shame about the 30p video though.

B1ackhat I agree with you! IMO Canon has the best colors output, thats why I am interested on the G1xii. The Oly colors of the EM10 does not seem a big upgrade from the RX100.

IQ is the same as RX100 (I also have both), I prefer the portability of the Sony. Imagine going to a party with a Olympus on your neck.
