Some of the best samples I have seen so far. They really bring out the potential of this camera. Nice to see shots in good light, and closeup images.

Camera is positioned to compete with low end DSLRs, attractive to those people who don't have/change lenses and prefer a super zoom solution. There are several parameters of interest to this category of users:

  • size/weight - close (400-500g DSLR body + 400-500g DSLR lens)
  • price - much worse: $1300 vs $600-1000
  • lens - resolution, contrast, aberrations - unknown at this time, but not likely on the same level as 18-135 and 18-140 DSLR lenses.
  • lens - effective 16-130 f/5 in APS-C - close enough to 18-135, 18-140 lenses, though there are more choices among DSLR lenses, so it won't impact those people who prefer faster lenses, as well as those who prefer longer lenses.
  • focus speed: slow CDAF vs fast PDAF.
  • sensor resolution: 20MP vs 18-24MP.
  • sensor quality: dynamic range, crosstalk - unknown at this time, but likely worse than entry level APS-C DSLRs.
  • upgradability: none
  • sensor cleaning: ???

Based on the above, it doesn't look RX10 will have any impact on DSLR market.
