biza43: It is interesting to compare with the EISA awards:
People like stating the obvious as comments for replying this thread.
Denizen X: Only one compact category?
Because brands other than Sony might win it ;))))))))
King of Song: Sony is now in a position to actually win this impossible to win war...
If Sony were to stop selling it's best sensors to Nikon, and to constantly develop it's software with regular firmware updates. Fix it's archaic menu system, Nikon would be in big trouble. Canon on the other hand doesn't need any help in falling behind, already doing a great job of it.
Then you'd be paying huge sums of money for a simple camera. Just think if Canon were to stop allowing EF adapters from third party manufacturers. Camera+Zeiss lens will be yours for $10.000 only. Happy dreams ;)
Mike Sandman: I ordered this today, before seeing this partially complete review. I have no regrets based on what I've read here. My Canon gear will be on eBay shortly - as soon as I get a camera with which to photograph it.
And your Sony will be on e-bay soon replaced by another Sony, Nikon, Canon or wait the up and coming full frame Pentax.
justmeMN: Canon cameras are good enough for professional sports photographers to take photos at events like the "Super Bowl, NBA Finals, and a few World Series", but they aren't good enough for DPR Measurebators to take photos of their cats. :-)
Measurebators might be asking their cats which camera they like best :-))
It can only be good for the competition.
Aroart: Wow, I can't believe how many wannabe photographers post and argue about a review. Cant you guys just say thanks , great review. Thanks DP review for letting me know that the Sony rx10m2 is bad for shooting sports.. See, was that so hard...
Forums like this increases the clicks a website gets. I suspect that Dpreview is happy having a lot of adolescent geeks arguing among themselves.
oselimg: Fantastic piece of photographic history. I wander if Fox Talbot's wife named them as "Mouse Trap" with affection or grudgingly. :-)
You can change your camera model with a better or more suitable one but... :-)))))

This collection of samples are a perfect example of how to kill a camera. There are other websites reviewed this camera and samples here bare no resemblance to those. They look almost like out of a compact camera.Something is wrong here. How do you get so much noise with ISO100?
falconeyes: Must be a slow day ... Canon is able to make 1.5µm pixels in an APS-H sensor. Who not?
Another failed attempt by Canon to obfuscate they are lagging behind the competition in sensor technologies. All other vendors would have left this is a home work exercise to their employees ...
Sony sensors are better only in DR. Rest of the technical qualities and performances Canon are ahead. DR is not the only thing that a photographer is worried about despite the many geeks in these forums religiously think it is.
Eleson: Why make a pressrelease on internal development projects?
d) Because the world doesn't evolve around you.
sirok: Forget more MegaPixels . Here is Inovation that will make its way to Sony Camerashttps://www.youtube.com/watch?t=146&v=qn5YQVvW-hQ
@sirok...It's an interesting invention. I think that it has potential for practical applications. However I didn't see anything to suggest that Sony bought the licence for this invention. Perhaps it's your wish that Sony would use it rather than factual statement from you.
Put Sony badge on these cameras I'll buy them in pairs now to take errm...much more detailed pictures of my cat. Are they mirrorless by the way?
Francis Carver: Yeah, right.... Canon is feverishly "developing" this, that, and the other.
But meanwhile, what Canon actually HAS: pieces of overpriced, under-spec'd products pretty much obsolete on the day they hit the marketplace. So, who would really fall for this kind of lame-fake announcements from a rather discredited company like Canon?
@Francis Carver...As long as trollers have a right to their "opinion" you will see more news for technical development from any company. Or perhaps they are doing it just to personally annoy you ;-)
The whole sale criticism style is very tiresome. Criticising (trolling) a brand, in this case Canon, on the basis of the pixel size alone is lacking in substance to say the least. "falconeyes" appears as he can compare a phonecamera sensor to this one. He should be able to support his claim with his evidence since it's as easy as a homework.
It is also highly a sad case that a lot of people think that as if governments need high megapixel cameras to make life hell for their citizens. Oh yes...before the high megapixel cameras world was a peaceful place with full of fair, ethical laws passed by humane governments. Large parts of the world's population, mainly in developed world, have already been made slaves to banks by politicians owned by banks. While we rightly complain about surveillance cameras banks and large corporations don't need them at all to achieve their goals through credit/banking systems.
AbrasiveReducer: It's a run-up to their expo this month. Typical Canon, following the money, aiming for lucrative industrial and government sales. The way the world is going, security and surveillance are going to be bigger businesses than consumer cameras.
So...Sony lose government contracts by a small margin of 8mp. Typical Sony.
Meanwhile Dpreview can't help to a highly opinionated comment "which sounds a bit like they(Canon) don't know what to do with it now they've made it." I wander if Dpreview have an insider on Canon's executive committee?
PeterTahl: lossy raw is a little pity. rest of the camera is outstanding. the best camera in years.
I'd lke to see Rishi Sanyal opposing to "the bestb camera in years" gemeralisation.
