JJ Rodin: Saw mention and pics of this several months ago, and finally we see it a bit better. Looks like a very good competitor for RX100III/IV maybe even RX10II.
Just sad it has a Sony sensor in a Canon cam :(
Not a RX100 III/IV competitor, but a $1,240 near competitor of the RX10 having to buy the EVF separately.
phazelag: That Continuous FPS rate in JPEG and RAW just turned me off from this camera.
The FZ1000 AF and FPS is JPEG and RAW is so far superior its not even worth comparing.
I like Canon colors and I like the compact nature of this camera, but I think Canon crippled this camera with such weak shot to shot performance.
Very true. Why does Canon keep doing this Canonitis behavior?
Hinder: Why does Canon keep making cameras that everyone ALMOST wants? This was soooo close to being good. Even a tunnel VF is better than nothing. Yes, I know about the add on but Canon says you'll get about 40 pictures less per battery when using it, I'm thinking they're stretching the truth a bit, it's might be double that.
Think most would agree a built in EVF is far more important than a touchscreen. What good is touch screen if you can't even see it on a bright sunny day. Welcome to usability Damian.
AF alone seems to have further advanced the RX100 series in the IV.
Kind of scary, but if you look above in the Gear In This Story section, 10 people indicate for the RX100 IV they have already owned it. Kind of scary or maybe their just confused?.
Jennyhappy2: The more negative comments on the RX100 IV, the popular it becomes. Everyone seems to be an expert Of which probably none of them don't even own a RX100 I, II, or II. Let alone a Sony camera.
If I recall, many felt the same thing when the original RX100 came out.
Own the RX100 III and previously the Canon G1X II. I see you own the G7X so welcome to the Sony forum. Guess you are looking to upgrade to either the RX100 III or IV. Given the issues with the G7X, good idea!
Who's quote is that statement or something you said previously?
Searching: Unremarkable is what I see.
All depends how you look at things and even more so since you don't own a RX100 I, II, or III and all your activity has been in the Canon DSLR and Micro Four Thirds forums so.....

OngNikon: Each time a new camera came out, there are always tons of experts who will run it down, saying that there is no improvement or worst than the last model.
I just wonder how did we get this current level of marvelous digital imaging technology?, since last year's one is as good, ir not, better than this year's!
Agree since everyone said the same thing when the II came out and then the III.
Ok now ready...open your eyes....and there you go.
Spongemac: i stand by my previous assessment with m4. Basically, its 1" sensor and Sony is asking 1k for it. i'm sure its worth it for some. Looks like i'll have to move into APSC sensor to get my low light shots. tysm for posting those pics, its very helpful.
Yeah....so what's the issue?
Jennyhappy2: What exactly were you expecting?
2 different cameras with 2 different purposes therefore need to decide what your needs are. So your expecting the same IQ of the larger camera of the GM1 in the RX100 IV. Sorry but unrealistic expectations.
Looks great! Any idea when we might see the full review?
Marcelobtp: RXIV worse image quality than RXIII?OR now we are getting real RAWs?The chromatic aberration and of the RXIV and a little diference in white balance is very perceptible.
Uh ok if you say so...
What exactly were you expecting?
Sorry, but unless you plan on changing lenses, the RX100 III surpasses the GM1 and GM5.
guydr: All RX100's have good IQ, I'm not gone argue that and you pay for the version you want. My only gripe with Sony cams is the launching price in the EU. RX100m3 was 849€ when introduced, now the RX100m4 will be 1149€. I think Sony lost touch with reality here and at that price they are gone sell 0,000³ units in the EU. Don't BS over the VAT, that's the price we have to pay. The G7X is now around 500€ in comparisation.
Demand just isn't there for the G7X given the lack of EVF and complications with the lens.
rsf3127: Good news: now I can buy a RX100III at discount prices.
RX100 III at discount from the price of $798...
Jennyhappy2: Either way it's gonna sell.
As of today on Amazon, here are the top sellers:
LX100 - #113RX100 II - #104RX100 IV - #20RX100 III - #19RX100 - #18
Like it, then buy it. Otherwise, look elsewhere.
Mike FL - it's just so not worth it, just take the high road.
