Abu Mahendra: Canon had five cameras in this comparo, and still can't manage to rise to the top...
Thomas McLean: There is a huge selection in this field and some have mentioned some that were absent and good contenders. I have several on this list and think that while good they are not quite great. What I'd like to see is the marriage of the G1XMII and the RX100Miv. I like the zoom range, touch screen, menu system and sensor size on the Canon but would like a new sensor design, speed and options of the Mark iv. I think Canon need to make the G1X line truly world class. It needs to be pushing technology on all fronts and they really aren't. Hard to say as a long time Canon fan. Sony have so much innovation in such a small size they are almost in a class of their own. That said, a camera is a very personal thing and what works for some, doesn't for others regardless of its status in the roundup.
Now that would make an awesome camera, yet I thought that was the purpose of the G1X II.
felicity: Which is going to take better pictures overall: Sony RX100 IV or this? Especially for telephoto shots: this is a roundabout way of asking how will cropping/enlarging a photo from the RX100 compare to one taken by the ZS100 with the sloooow lens? Is there a graph of the aperture by zoom length?
Should see that in the upcoming review here. As for better pictures it all comes down to where your primary focus will be. Faster lens or more zoom range?
If Panasonic is thinking smart they will follow Sony and keep both the ZS60 and the ZS100 to offer two different price points.
Jennyhappy2: Kind of sums it up: "photographers who care about speed and ultimate image quality, the RX100 III is the way to go."
Ahhh, ok, if you say so. LOL :-)
LX100 or RX100 III/IV, you can't go wrong!
LOL read the article LOL
That was a direct quote from the editor on this site, I will put more accuracy in that. LOL
Myla: Awesome point and Shoot! Worth the money.
EddyGil, so now your saying the reviewer is wrong? LOL
telefunk: What a relief. I'm selling my RX100III at last!
Careful before you sell the RX100 III...keep in mind you will be going to a much slower lens.
Beckler8: ZS100 bridging the gap between the no-zoom rx100 type and the way-too-much zoom tiny sensor type. Finally!! With 4K no less - an exciting camera. Will Sony have a response or will they let Lumix trample all over rx? :D
Marty, good point, just look at Canon's current line up, it will take them another one or two iterations for what Sony mastered with the initial RX100 and RX10.
ThePhilips: That's the RX100 I've been waiting for!
Guess it all depends on your interest...a long zoom OR superior optical performance.
True, it is probably what explains the price difference. In the preview noticed they indicated: "The ZS100's lens starts out as a very respectable F2.8 maximum aperture but very quickly slides towards the F5.9 that you're limited to at full zoom. By 50mm equivalent it's already dropped to F4 (F11 equiv., given the crop factor)"
Understand, but the F1.8-2.8 lens on the RX100 is oh so much nicer than that F2.8-5.9 in the TZ100.
thomas2279f: Good on Panay especially the TZ100 and its features should put pressure on Sony to lower its price of the Sony RX100 MK 4 which will be good news for all of us.
Good point, RX100 lens is shorter, but much faster, TZ100 lens is slower, but longer.
What about the 1" sensor compacts?
Keep in mind these two cameras are actually quite different although they have the same since sensor size.
Kind of sums it up: "photographers who care about speed and ultimate image quality, the RX100 III is the way to go."
Ahh the tried and true RX100 IV...an amazing camera!
alenis: Comparing the studio test scene, I would say that the Canon G7 x performs better, especially at the corners..
