Roland Karlsson: WOA! This camera attracts comments!

Nice camera BTW. Think I shall get one.

Over 2700? Wow! Last I checked the G1X II had 2,000 fewer.

Guess the most popular camera gets the most interest.

amf1932: I own the RX-100 and was interested in the RX-100 III. I originally purchased the Black Hard Case for my RX-100, but Sony does not offer this type case anymore.
Does anybody know whether my case will fit the RX100 III??

You mean the jacket case?

2336 comments on a camera that hasn't even been released yet? At this point, it appears the RX100 III may end up being the most popular version yet in the RX100 series. And in relation to the G1X II, the Popularity of the the RX100 III is up and over the top.

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!

Tony - well stated!

Might explain why the RX100 III is the most popular camera now on this site with nearly 45%...cannot recall the last time any camera at that high of interest.

Simply amazing...Sure seems to be ALOT of interest in the RX100 III, over 1,220 comments on the First Impressions Review...nearly twice, almost three times as many as the G1X II which was posted a week ago. Hasn't even been released yet and looks like Sony has yet another hit on their hands.

onlooker: I read the blurb about the control ring in the preview above, but I still don't know - is it possible to do manual focus with it?

Whether it gets the Gold Award or not, right now, the III is the best compact you can by. Now if Nikon surprises us with the P8000 then that may change, but remains to be seen.

Sorry to hear you are unhappy with the G1X II. Time to preorder the RX100 III.

Jennyhappy2: Anyone know if RX100 III takes the LCJRXF jacket case while the RX100 I and II took the LCJRXC? Are there actually enough difference is the design/dimensions that one won't work with the other?

According to the sony site, the new one is the LCJRXF jacket case.

wasi2quick: I guess having to wait to save up for the mkii turned out to be a good thing? Gonna be a great travel companion. And having the built in view finder is awesome.

Agree! Compared to the G1X II, you get the external viewfinder built in and don't have to pay extra for it. Only $798 vs. $1094. :-)

On Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II Review preview (634 comments in total)

"These tests (and our test scene on the coming pages) suggest that the RX100 II's sensor is so much better than the G1 X II's that it cancels-out much of the dynamic range and high ISO noise advantages that the G1 X II's larger sensor should bring.

Overall, though, the larger sensor in the Canon is much of the reason that the camera is so much less pocketable than the Sony, yet the full benefits of that additional sensor size are not realized: the Canon's image quality advantage isn't proportionate with its greater bulk."

and this is based on the RX100M2 before the RX100M3 is announced in about a week with a significantly faster lens and other improvements. Did Canon make a mistake by not giving the camera a better sensor??? http://www.dpreview.com/products/sony/compacts/sony_dscrx100m2

In reply to:

Lucas_: Well, it looks to me Canon is still kinda lost...! When you see the mirrorless cameras by Sony, Olympus, Fuji,... For example, the Sony RX100 II has been around for a while now and Canon shows nothing new over it. Quite sad.

http://www.dpreview.com/previews/canon-powershot-g1-x-mark-ii/images/apertures.png

This pretty much sums it up:

"he above chart shows the changes in 35mm equivalent aperture as the equivalent focal length increases. This chart is effected by both sensor size and lens speed. The G1 X II starts off very well, and bumps into three other cameras (the original G1 X, Sony Cyber-shot RX100 II, and Canon Rebel with kit lens) at 28mm. That doesn't last long, as the G1 X quickly pulls away from all but the Rebel until you reach 50mm, at which point the G1 X Mark II is in a class by itself."

Looks like a step up from the Canon S120 for someone who wants something smaller than than the RX100 and start at 25mm.

So between the S120 and XQ1, XQ1 has the edge given the larger sensor?
