New RX10 IV

This is a very impressive cybershop at $1,700 but I feel sorry for those non-informed people who wonder in to Best Buy and pick one of these up. It will sell because it seems like such a great camera to a novice but sadly they should look at other offerings before pulling the trigger on this camera.

A RX100 V is a much more user friendly camera at almost one fourth the weight size and is a true pocket yet very capable camera and 40% less money.  Who shoots at 600mm and ends up with anything worth sharing?

A far better choice yet is if someone is ready to fork over $1,700 and carry a 38.62 oz or 2.41 lb chunk of camera  is a a6500 with a 16-50 lens for $1,498 and half the weight and bulk with a APS-C sensor instead of a puny 1"

Picture quality is probably twice as good and you have the ability to add a zoom or other if you want.

sensor size compare 1" to APS-C Sony its about a third the size and  gathers 15 times more light

Please do not put words in my mouth. Nothing can be further from the truth.
