One step BEHIND: Nikon 1 V3 Review
How I see it:
HIGH: in sharpness&detail, LOW: in color&contrast , DR could be better
I like it though!
p.s. not for the price
bluevellet: FZ1000 is much more bang for the buck.
in Uk the price is almost THE SAME £774 RX10 (UKdigital -£50off) vs £749 FZ1000
sony is eligible for £50cashback
I would then go with sony- for weathersealing, size, aperture ring, sharper lens, AF, bulid quality, top display
Greynerd: It seems to me that the RX10 sits in a sort of no man's land between the Canon G1X MkII which has 80mm less reach but a large rather than mid size sensor yet is substantially smaller and the FZ1000 which has the reach to justify its size.
is the reach or aperture more important? it depends on use
supeyugin1: Great camera, but too expensive. Have an original RX100, but rarely use it - too boring. I prefer my Pentax Q7 - that's where the fun is!My Samsung NX20 setup is also rarely used. Pentax FTW!
I guess the fun begins only due the interchangeable or manual focus lenses?!?
Gonini: its getting bigger and heavier, not nice
wow , so much bigger!!!:
Gonini: all this excitement for a pop up evf?better review if the rx100 III can do correct skin tones, rx100 and rx100II couldnt get correct ones or if the IS has gotten better for this model
@Gonini ; You are "galg glass empty guy" arent' you? :-/
Can somebody please calculate how much you can crop from telephoto on RX100III (from 20MP to 12Mp) of the Canon GX1 MkII? Ta
Alphoid: Seems like another home run. Sadly, not quite worth the upgrade for me. There's a half dozen possible ifs that would push it over, but most likely, I'll go for the IV. If Sony can keep up this momentum, it'll be hard to resist whatever that upgrade will bring.
If it was a few hundred less, I'd do it. If it had a mike input and audio levels, it'd replace carrying video equipment. I'd do it. (I'm especially excited by this with the full frame readout)
I guess addition of EVF makes it more expensive camera than its predecessors....
"So, while we're excited by the potential of the RX100 III, we're a little worried that it might be another great camera that we just can't love."
Silver award here I come :)
My personal award: Platinum with gold inside
Poweruser: There is no retail in Europe. Direct order from Hong Kong is a service nightmare in case something is not right...
Its also on eBay
radissimo: For a second I was thinking about this kit, but why not get Canon G x1 mark II with nice bright zoom lens, bigger sensor and for less?
@technic:could you provide the links to quality tests?
p.s. I DON'T think that the low light performance will be much different between this Canon GX1 mkII and GM1 with this lens
Alan Lai: FF equivalent whine....checkM43 sensor too small whine....checkToo big whine....checkToo expensive whine....checkAperture ring whine....checkOlympus is better whine....check
Back to topic: Good lens and handy focal length. Price is a little bit too high.
too expensive whine check...check...

Retzius: For those who are confused as to why this lens is relevant, compared to the Nikon equivalent it is smaller, lighter, and much cheaper, with equal to better optical performance.
It is not targeted at your average Dpreview brick wall shooter who examines his sensor for dust particles. It is targeted at a first time Dslr shooter with an intro level body who doesn't want to change lenses that often.
And they sell alot of these
RX10 much better IMHO-esp. the lens, I am dissapointed-soft, overexposed, P&S like
The main dealbreaker for me is that uncomfortable on/off switch, believe or not that was the reason why I sold my E-M5 :-(
f1.4 in the 4/3 terms ,sharp from wide open and small! wow
EdHaady: A7 or X-T1?
A7 if you have money to buy it,best picture quality (high ISO , dunamic range), legacy lenses,X-T1 if you need better handling, native lenses
I found it hilarious that Dpreview posting rumors and "leaks" and at the same time they already have an camera in their hand, surely they will post preview or first look review at the day of announcement! ;-D
I am sorry but I have to be very CRITICAL to this article:
1) seems like written by complete newbie to mirrorless/NEX cameras, who just discovered how peaking works2) very poor lens selection, I would expect much better glass reviewed - not just crappy glass for few $$$ , C'Mon Barney you must have access to better glass!3) main complain seems to be re: magnif. button placement, but half of the community knows that magnified view is best assigned to centre button AEL// AF/MF 4) I feel that shooting alt /legacy lenses is much more fun than portrait in this half-baked article!I have learned nothing new at all
