SETI: Sony RX100 optics?
No, as it is smaller image circle...
Andy Crowe: "There's no such thing as a free lunch, it seems. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM1 offers a larger sensor than many of its big-sensor-small-camera competitors, but enters the market with only one lens designed to fit it without tipping over"
Surely all the pancake lenses (14mm, 17mm, 20mm and PZ14-42) would make perfectly good companions to this camera?
EXACTLY!- that's why you can buy additional grip which increases the height ..
ugly cyclop of the camera!
JEROME NOLAS: Where is promissed 16-80mm lens? Announced 2-3 years ago!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Why Sony cannot introduce NEX with control dial aka NEX-6 and alpha menu aka RX100?
Sam Carriere: If Sony says "early September" for availability, my guess is next spring or early summer ... maybe.
perhaps this is way to go with P&S : bring something unique to the table, in this case: size, why not? almost as slim as your mobile, with zoom and better control...
Samsung problems in MY VIEW:1) flange distance -too short for Leica M lenses2) poor distributors- its a fraction of their income- less attention then real phot companies3) lenses not made by 3rd party (look at the Fuji)4) high ISO not great initially-e.g sensors were behind when they started (look at the SONY)
Audi Q7 is much better

simple answer is : FF mirrorless :D
Seems like 10-18, 24, 35 and surprisingly 50 are the gems! 12 Toit is a bit of dissapointment
Josh152: Personally I am more interested to see if Canon has finally caught up on dynamic range and color depth than I am in the on sensor phase detection.
I guess SONY would need similar sensor in their new line of SLT cameras,so they can drop the old design (what they actually already announced). Again, isn't it basically sony sensor tweaked by Canon and they call it Canon now?
Timmbits: 1. design is form and function... looks are ok, I guess, but at this price, not even a hint of a handgrip is a pity... we'll be seeing a lot of $700 cameras wearing $1 adhesive-backed rubber strips on the front.
2. bye-bye nikon1... between the rx100ii and larger-sensor mirrorless cameras, you just weren't meant to be.
see my links above
LINKS to grip and add on filter adapter: sweet and fairly cheap!:
Sam Carriere: Before people get too excited, let's remember that we are talking about Sony here -- where "available next month" actually means available to a small number of stores by the end of the year and in most other stores by next spring -- at the earliest.
that was because of the floods
SayCheesePlease: Maybe not big improvements, but still improvements. The 1st gen RX100 is already a little gem of a camera. The street price of the new RX100 will likely drop too with a little time. Another plus- it might be a good time to pick up a 1st gen RX100 at a discount!
not on second hand market, example: I bought RX100 year ago for £490, sold week ago for £350 with magfilter and grip.(eBay)I think rx100 is a great buy right now
Treeshade: RX100 sits comfortably between more expansive pocketable APS-C and those cheaper large sensor compact. Wouldn't the price up mean direct competition with Ricoh GR? GR is slightly larger (worth for the grip) but with much larger sensor and more control. So, is the 28-100mm zoom enough to differentiate the products, or is Sony playing purely on reputation?
they compete both in my book. I am deciding between the two. reason?I want pocketable high quality 28mm camera (as using this FL 80% of the time-as majority of the people),they have same price- I think they actually are competitors as second camera to my NEX-6. I sold RX100 and deciding between the two.pluses of GR: better lens and overall IQpluses RX100II: zoom is handy, same Sony hot shoe,tilting screen, gadgety stuff (panorama, HDR, wifi,NFC)HELP!
If no AF improvement= fail, but I simply cannot believe it! lets see the first reviews first
Seems that price/value is BETTER than Olympus E-p5 ,but NOT Sony NEX-5R...Competition is good...
