Tony Bromirski: For anyone that has never used a RX series camera...
Get one and try taking photos in the following conditions:
1) flower macro setting with autofocus tracking (as close as focus lock will allow) -stunning compositions result
2) low light where flash isn't feasible (kid performances, swim meets, etc) -gripping, well balanced details emerged
3) action scenes (family picnics, rodeo, dance performances, kids sporting events) -repeatedly pressing the shutter results in amazing, fun pictures
4) outdoor scenes (snow covered mountains, tree covered trails) -breathtaking details, well balanced colors and focus

We have the original RX, purchased via Sony.com (at full price) on the recommendation of NYT's David Pogue - we never regretted the ~$800.

Based on our experiences, I totally recommend this camera! The M2 is available for $699 at Costco.com. I am only disappointed with my search for an underwater housing unit. I can only image what could be possible in that arena!

Check out these underwater housings: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?ntt=rx100&refineSearchString=&atclk=To+Fit+(Camera+Manufacturer)_Sony&ci=16477&N=4185679681+4283022092&

On Canon EOS M Preview preview (549 comments in total)

Boy Canon is really messing up. This camera looks like something you give your 5 year old as their first camera. (ULGY!!) Apparently they have not been watching their competitions SONY's RX100 is killing them in what the G1X and this mirrorless should have been. And these M lens choices are slow!! What is the point If I have to use an EOS lens adapter to use a good lens? I'd rather carry my 5D3 in that case. Any person using a 70-200 2.8IS on this camera would be a fool (much less look like one).

Really? When I look at the Original size it looks like the leaves are slightly over processed and not as sharp as I would have expected. Maybe its the JPEG processing and the RAW file would be fine?

Anyone know when this camera is scheduled to be released in stores? This will definitely be my travel camera along side my 5DMKII w/24L!

agreed. this looks fine when small, but lousy at 100%. Wonder how the RAW would process out?

In reply to:

WillemHan: Is the big knurled ring around the lens really a manual zoom control? I passionately hope so. This is a serious camera, so please no (at least not just a) power zoom!

No, it does nothing! There is a release button on the lower right that allows the ring to be removed in order to mount the dual-macro flash that canon sells. I was hoping that it was an input selector like on the S95/S100, but it seems they only included the front dial and ring on the back (around the 4-way selector). : (

Is that a Depth of Field Preview button on the front below the lens?? That would be cool! Does the lens ring rotate for camera settings, or is it just the other 2 dials?
