Ha.....that would never happen in the UK
Boxbrownie: It is a shame it has all the controls of a point and shoot........
Well being a retired professional photographer (not employed by any other camera company!) I expect a camera of this sophistication and level to have decent controls on board, not something that looks like the control layout was lifted from lower priced P&S in their range.
And yes I like proper dials hence my P&S is a D-Lux (LX100)
I'll bash anything I don't like.......figuratively speaking of course :)

Lightcapture: You know what, I have a friend who's presently in Singapore and they have a good deal for this camera. Well, the RX100IV is on pre-order there with the original Sony 64GB SDXC (95MB/s) U3 card, extra battery and original Sony leather case (designed for the RX100 series). All in all, S$1235, which works out about £585. That's about the same price I got my original RX100 in 2012. Of course, I asked him to order it for me, and can't wait for it to arrive when he returns to England in a week's time!!!
Please note, that the second last paragraph in the WiFi page has an unfinished sentence.
Your not blind it is my searching thats blind, I didn't notice when I searched for the MkIV it reverted to the MKIII..........let your mate get it LOL
UK Digital, and quite a few other, even John Lewis have them at £569
Brilliant, love it............
Not sure if you have seen the deal now, camera for £540 then £50 cashback from Sony, the case and battery from Sony comes to £95 so for £585 you can have a UK genuine warranty model, call your mate quick! LOL
Oooo great, must dig out all my old enlarger lenses........save a fortune!
RichRMA: Resolution looks more like 12mp than 16, but noise control is great!
Comparing the E-M5II with this camera in the studio scene @200 JPG & RAW......the Fuli is completely lost, either something is wrong or something is wrong! ;)
It's a lovely little camera but that's one hell'o'va price for a compact, the new Oly 5II with lens costs same/less.
A lot of margin for fashion in there.
Boxbrownie: Looks interesting, but just look at the view of the side of the lenses you will get through the viewfinder!
@HowaboutRAW, Yes I have used a Leica M, but started on a Leica IIIf back in the 70's........so yes, I have looked through a Leica viewfinder and know what it's like, even if the early ones were a bit naff! LOL
And this camera is NOT a Leica.......so we will wait and see, but still looks a bit close to me.
You only have to look at the view in the third product picture to see how narrow the angle needs to be to cause a problem.

Its not a camera ranking though is it........its a photo downloaded ranking, so its not surprising Apple is so popular with all the i-phones and i-pads being used by consumers (not enthusiasts) for taking piccies......bit of a dumb table really.
StephenL: When will people realise there is no such thing as full frame? m4/3 is full frame to an Olympus user. Yet to a Pentax 645 owner, a Canon 5D sensor is tiny.
Without being too pedantic I think we can safely assume the name is applied to cameras which in films days would have been 35mm film format.
A real shame if Metz goes under, I used Metz for over 40 years professionally, starting with a wet cell flash.......had to keep your eye on the floating balls :)
I think I only ever had one fail on me and then it was bashing it against a wall half way up a Jacobs ladder that did it.
Thoughts: Only 5 g gold has been used.
Less in fact, as the gold metal bits have no chrome plating, thats come off to plate in gold.
I like it though.........
papa natas: Lee Filters...OMG!!!These guys have been there since forever.I bought a couple of their polarizers and masks for blue skies back in the late 70's.They made good old Technicolor movie films come alive & with pure colors.Great British know how.No, I'm not being paid for this.I just admire good, enduring, no bull products.Is the Spitfire coming back?
Cooke, Taylor-Hobson, Ross.......all gone now, but in their time made some of the finest lenses in the world.Keep up lad, keep up ;)
goblover: Is it just me, or the Canon G7x sample was motion blurred? And the LX100? If you see the top left and bottom right, the red water colour paint, and colour circle on the bottom left, the letters are blurred. The circle also not a full circle, a bit distorted. I'm not the expert, maybe DP Reviewers can help clarify why is that?
Not just you at all, in fact surprised it wasn't spotted before publication........any response DPR?
And if thats not a bit of camera shake, then Canon need to go back to the drawing board on lens design.
Boxbrownie: Looks like a very interesting/nice camera......just one thing......it looks bloomin' awfull with that skinny little lens barrel extended......very embarressing :))
Well if you mean a little sausage poking out the front of your body, then yes, I guess so ;)
