I wonder after the VA they are keeping the RX100 name for the long zoom version and renaming the fast lens cameras as a different group if no one has mentioned this.

This may help reduce comparisons between the 2 with the offsetting demands of speed and reach in a lens if they are marketed as different entities.

Just a thought.

Yes, you may well be right. They may reckon that the specialist vlogger market is less threatened by smartphones, and the 24-70 zoom range with a fast lens is ideal for vlogging, if not for general purpose photography.

Agreed but I do think the RX100Va is a nice little pocket camera. I’m actually having second thoughts about this new model and wonder if it might be nicely paired with the older Sony GP-VPT1 grip or, indeed, the newer Bluetooth version.

I’ll wait until the full announcement but It might be worthy of consideration as a pocket cam for both stills and video offering far better quality than even the best of smartphones. I was thinking of getting an up to date iPhone later in the year but may have to re-think. We’ll see .
