In reply to:

Jeff Greenberg: "The small size and unobtrusive appearance of the M10 (once the ostentatious red dot has been taped over) tends not to draw much attention."

From this, writer has little experience shooting in Orient.
A pointed camera draws little attention, often none at all,
in Japan, China (except UK influenced Hong Kong), vs. in "The West".
One exception would be street vendors who have tired
of flashes popping in their face...

You have made my point!!!!!!!!!
I said UK-influenced Hong Kong exception.
You are Western-influenced English reading-writing Asian.
Tse Tse & arigatto for supporting my position.
Checkmate.

> it's your look

Small percentage, maybe.
It seems to be about Asians not paying nearly as
much attention to their peripheral vision, for
whatever reason. And-or about being less inclined
to confrontations... Westerners being more
assertive with protection of privacy, etc. But
even Westerners in public places have now been
"forced" towards more tolerance by constant
parade of smartphone camera encounters...

On article Fast Five: Sony Cyber-shot RX100 V Review (420 comments in total)
In reply to:

Charlie Jin: Camera is supposed to be just simple. We adjust aperture, shutter speed, and in digital, ISO. And if slight automation is needed, exposure compensation(+/-). I have went through various several Sony cameras for last several years, and I feel that Sony is a genius in making this simple process so complex, confusing, uncomfortable, and unergonomic. By the time I set up the right exposure, the moment is gone. Eventually, I gave up and I use the "the last Sony in my life" simply as a "Aperture Priority-Only Camera".

Let's dumb it down:
It offers dozens of shooting schemes.
You select one, two, or a few as your go-to schemes.
You need not worry about other schemes.

In reply to:

Suntan: Looks like a really good camera. But I missed the images where you showed off the bevy of new, good quality, compact, price rational zooms and primes for this camera...

HELLO SONY!! LISTEN SONY!!

Make it possible for some of us to buy A6500.
Your 24-240mm f3.5-6.3 (780g) hyperzoom appears to be
highest rated of all hyperzooms on Dx0. Modify it specifically
for A6500 sensor to higher quality & faster at wide end,
something like f2.8 or f2.4, shorten it some if you must to
keep lens weight under 750g, say 24-180...? $1200 retail??

AND OFFER IT BEFORE 2017 -- I NEED THE TAX DEDUCTION!!!

Jeff Greenberg: Seeing comments "A6500 destroys Canon M5".
WHY??? Authoritative list of unbiased reasons appreciated.

Does A6500 AF match A7rII AF wrt speed & accuracy?
How high does A6500 in-camera flash sit above lens?
High enough to avoid lens shade semi-circle shadowing?
(or offer an adapter to avoid it?)

Sidebar: why did Sony fumble chance to make its
G24-70 f2.8 best in class??!!!
(a couple other have higher Dx0 rankings AFAICT)

I'd get A6500 in an instant if there was high quality
fast lightweight hyperzoom for it -- even if tele end
was slow f6.3... (f2.8-f6.3) say 24-240 equivalent
Optical engineers: could high end 24-240mm f2.8-6.3
for 1.5x sensor be under, say, 24 oz?

Clearly you're not full time stock shooter & don't grasp the reality of exploring major urban areas worldwide searching for close & personal compositions of real people doing real things, ready for split second moments of serendipity, shooting (100+) varied keepers daily, having lens hood bump hard into things at least once a month or more.

And it was fixed...?
Why not with A6500, too...?

No point.

For my RX10, I made funky in-flash diffuser from
plastic milk jug handle -- one end tucks into thin
space below front name plate & angle upward
in front of flash. It cuts lens hood shadow by 75%,
but not completely. Shadow can be effectively
eliminated with 16bitTIF dodging
except when it appears in plain area.

But I would NEVER take lens hood off & boost
chance front of lens gets scratched-damaged.
And act of taking it off & on means many
missed grab shots... The biggest reason for
using in-camera flash is eliminating weight
& having less items = aux flash + batteries + charger...

In reply to:

Siobhan A: Interesting, the FZ1000 has the same amount of noise or possibly slightly less at higher ISOs. RX10 colors look poor too. Add RX10's inability to focus on a moving object due to no PDAF and no DFD.

The RX10iii had a couple nice gimmicks, but FZ1000 beats it or equals it in so many areas for 1/3rd the price the Panasonic is clearly the better value and usually the better option.

> Are you guys looking at the same studio comparison I am?

"you guys" = FZ1000 owners?
They're looking at same.
But with their mind's eye.
And their mind is on a trip.

In reply to:

Glenn Barber: Yes - and we wish they had just gotten Canon to use their sensors in the pro line like Nikon did. They seem to have the best sensor technology available but can't create a camera menu system that makes sense or figure out how to QC and repair their high end products.

> Well Canon...they certainly keep falling further behind

Only good Canon is Pachelbel's.

There's voluntary dropouts & there's the other kind that get hired by Canon & Nikon.
