On article RX aeternus? Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 II review (271 comments in total)

On my second set of Sony rx10 ll, rx100iv, a7rll, I don't need a touch screen like on my Samsung g6. What I do need is the fun and great pictures (to me) All the time wasted on trying to bring down Sony is to me nonsense. Pana, Nikon, Canon all great and we should live in the world of buy what you like.

Teardown really! I'm on my second RX10 just got the RX10II. Who cares what the parts cost are! Sony buys in mass, if you had to buy the parts and hire people to put it together that's the only cost you need to worry about.
Does a Cadillac really need to cost that much more than a Chevy. But if it performs as you need buy it.
You are buying a great lens and a great home for it. After traveling and using the RX10's. I can assure you I have no issues but great pics and videos. Are they going into a magazine or to make me money... no. But the look great in print and on my 65 inch Samsung. Is the Panny better I don't care I know it is also a great tool. If you are going to comment on one buy one then comment.

when you live in the past then that makes sense. stay where you are happy they are great products. if you make sense of your reasoning that's fine but the sony is $3200 the canon eq is $3700. it not about being hip, it's spending the money you earned on what works for you. in light of sony and pana entry into this area we now have more (and in my mind better choices) more choices. sometimes giving into change is hard. problems arise when forums like this forget we are here because we enjoy our cameras. what you base your opinion on is your stuff so enjoy it or did you write this out of frustration about not moving forward like many of us did.

Loved my original love my rx10 2 even more. After trips to Vietnam, Cambodia, Newzealand, Australia and a lot of Europe rx10 have been great. I read about it cost to much the Pana is better. Nothing wrong with the Pana or buying decision but I really write that off as either u don't want to spend the money on it or you are a fan boy. Every shot and every video is a keeper on the Rx10 m4 . On my 65 inch Samsung the videos and pics are spectacular. My rx100 m4 fills in as a backup and less noticeable companion. In my mind I grab it before my a6000 or my a7r it just is a truly fun and never disappointed me.

I think you have panasidiss and the cure is a injection of Sonyserum. Just in fun. One time it was ford vs chev oh ya Plymouth and Dodge won that! Then it was vhs vs beta all knew beta had a better picture. Then Nikon vs Canon as a Nikon person it to me was a tie . Now on to Panna vs sony my Pana friend had to sell his Pana stuff and move to Sony to get what I had. Please note I think Pana stuff is great, thank God for free market so we can have them doing the vs thing. Picture... (pun intended) it as this we all win and can debate and choose and change our minds. God bless it!

After reading this I now want to trade my a7r for the a7rll and skip the 7s want list. The 7r is lighter and great pictures but WOW to the 7rll. I suffer from CAS so the 7rll is therapy... right?

In reply to:

Bren Dyer: Sony seem to be an innovative company that continually bring out new products that dont quite fit the norm. I am a dedicated Nikon user but get a serious hardware hard on when I see the stuff Sony come out with. The A7 series is actually bloody good and I have been tempted on more than one account to jump ship. The biggest question for me is will it work well with my lenses especially the 70-200 2.8...
The low light capabilities of these cameras MUST point it in the right direction for at the very least a second camera in a wedding shoot, if not the leading role...

Yes, a very serious hardware hard on!

I made the switch. I loved my Nikon stuff but the video did not match what i needed. I started with an a65 to me it just beat all others videos. I have the a7r, a6000, rx10 and rx100-2. Just ordered the RX10-II. The RX10 is my go to and travel camera. I have not looked back. Not sure about your lens question but shear fun of my Sony's. Low light, video etc I know Canon people doing the same switch. It's a new era maybe not better but different needs! The one I want next is the 7s

Please stop calling the Rx10 an enthusiasts camera. Rent one go on a shoot like a grandsons baseball game or a wedding inside a church with no flash to be used. This camera fits the moment either video or stills. It' the best travel etc. camera I've ever had. And now Sony has made it better. I guess I'm enthusiastic about it!

Too bad we don't get it in the US. I would (if) give them the land no property taxes little or no state tax for ten years then a low tax rate (fed is another issue and my solution would apply) buiid it where needs are strong workers sign a work for hire agreement (no unions) and then pay them them a wage based on performance and company profit. Make the workers assets and happy. Nikon could pick up the costs of design etc in other areas this is only an assembly plant. More money in the hands of the people will get any economy going. Stop paying big gov and big unions have a market economy instead.

On article Dpreview Users' Poll: Best Camera of 2012? (1508 comments in total)

I can understand the two leading cameras excellant and state of the art. However as we all dream of a pocket camera that can statisfy 80% of the needs of a big camera heavy (I know the Oly is somewhat small) my vote is with my RX100 the fun begins with pocketabilty and great photos. There are no losers to me in the list but we keep trying to pit one system against another, That keeps them all making better equipment and WE enjoy the results. Isn't the free market great!

So now it's about the amount of lenses. Nikon is proud of it's history not in a race with anyone that's all.
