gordon lafleur: Why does Sony persist in making lovely small cameras, then only offer big ugly clunky lenses?
Because they don't care to listen to nonsense like you're saying?
HelloToe: The problem I have with this sort of design is that even if you shrink the body of an FF down to a smaller size, you're still stuck with large FF lens sizes. If size is really what matters, APS-C or MFT still makes more sense. (And if size doesn't matter, why bother with a new system?)
Is this really a happy medium for anyone?
They're not as big as DSLR ones. Look at Leica for instance. No mirror - shorter distance to the sensor - smaller lenses.
mitch72: Like the specs! Ugly design! I wish Olympus or Fuji was releasing this with the retro look! Anyway i congratulate Sony......
Thanks god, Olympus and Fuji had nothing to do with these cams designs! Especially Olympus. Yes, I'm talking about OM-D that is intended to scam nostalgic people into planking extra $400 for bad "retro" feel and poor ergonomics. NEX cams are good enough and stylish enough. Anyway, style is not important. It's just a tool for taking pictures.
Fatal Farter: Anyone else thinks the colours for the rooftop party shot with the Sony Cyber-shot RX100II isn't so nice?
It's definitely a "personal thing" because raw "not adjustable raw" does not make any sense.
Laembert: Are there any comparsions of AF speed with Panasonic G3 and Olympus E-PL3? I really like this camera but I´m disappointed with AF speed from this video.
Funny enough, I've played with both cams in Fry's few days ago and did not notice any issues with focusing on both of them and found that Sony's focusing works much faster, very close to what you can expect from SLR and SSM lenses.
