Sony...APS-C RX10 please...
1

Since there's a gap between the RX1 and the RX100! It should be filled with the RX10 with an APS-C sensor and much more affordable than the RX1 for us mortals.

Sony RX1 Sony RX100

I think, if RX1 is happening, RX100 has happened, RX10 will.

I would go for an RX1 with an 80 megapixel FF sensor having a similar pixel pitch as the RX100.

Re: Sony...APS-C RX10 please...

I'm not so sure, the proposed RX10 would directly compete with their NEX cameras.
The RX100 and RX1 doesn't compete with anything else in the Sony lineup.

I'd love to see an APS-C RX10 with a 24mm f2.8 Zeiss lens though!

RX100 plays in the NEX-F3 and NEX-5N (soon 5R) segment.

The only question that might remain is, whether we will see zoom or a prime. Either way, I expect it to be fixed. That may be the "RX" formula.

I wonder what the requirements for processing and backing up those HUGE RAW files would be.

Re: Sony...APS-C RX10 please...

Don't you think the RX1 competes with the soon to be announced A99? Besides, the RX series seems to be reserved for non-interchangeable lenses. I think an RX10 with a 23mm F1.4 Zeiss would be fantastic.

It already exists, albeit under a different prefix... "HX".

Nope, I´m looking in between. HX sensors and results are still "not enaugh"

Well you can say that about the Fuji X100.

Why not? Maybe it'll have 1/1.7' sensor like Canon S100

It would be twice the weight with that zoom.

Thats what you get for adding another zero.

Re: Sony...APS-C RX10 please...

I believe if it had the same pixel pitch as the RX100 you would be looking at 151 megapixel, not 80 .... Imagine the crop to zoom possibilities Bwahahahaha.

Re: Sony...APS-C RX10 please...

RX10 would ruin the NEX line, especially if it had a 2.5-3x zoom lens which retracts into the body. But I do hope they make it...when the technology will permit to make a pocketable APS-C zoom camera.

I just wish Sony would introduce a camera that's actually worthy of the "R" designation.

That would be the perfect camera - but by the time it gets made, things will have moved on & our expectations with it...
