ivan1973: I am not sure the relevance of such as card when MicroSD rules in price, performance and size. The XQD demand is so low that manufacturing may not be sensible anymore.

... different tools for different tasks ;)

lovEU: I like it and like HP's attempt to provide a mobile 'real machine' that delivers interesting options (i.e. i7 8650U, 32 GB RAM, up to 2 TB, SD card slot) - cool.
Anyway, I'd like it even more if also a 'lite' version would be offered: less weight at the cost of less graphic power. Instead of "Starting at 4.78 lbs (2.17 kg) (laptop mode) and 3.64 lbs (1.65 kg) (Tablet mode)" I'd prefer something like 'Starting at 3.31 lbs (1.50 kg) (laptop mode) and 2.16 lbs (0.98 kg) (Tablet mode)'. Get me right: at less specs of course.

Here Yoga 920 actually is starts at 1600 € (i5, 8 GB) - not a bargain :)

yep, that's a nice pick also, a bit pricy over here.

In reply to:

sandy b: D850 looks great. Almost imperceptible from the SOny IMO. But hey, that D750!

Good point! I'm seriously considering buying two D750 bodies instead of one D850 body also because the D750 looks very good even at low ISO values:

lovEU: My local dealer recently told me he is somewhat bewildered how easily customers are paying Sony prices - I'm already curious to get to know if this will apply to the RX1R II too.

No way it is 30% but anyway, he really is surprised that Sony folks seem to spend money a lot more liberrally than Canikon guys :) For sure, this will not harm his pockets :)

lovEU: Tripod mount not centered? What? Really? I only can shake my head in disbelief - trying to compete with DSLRs but then adding Cybershot-like features. Somehow funny :)

"The tripod mount is not centered and it prevents you from opening the battery compartment door when you're using a tripod."

I understand: Sony doesn't want me using this cam i.e. for photography at night. What a shame.

@ Rishi Sanyal: Absolutely, it is very likely that a compromise due to constraints has caused this decision. Anyway, as a potential buyer I'd like Sony to re-think and design this "feature (and, to provide a much better battery life).

"You've already suggested you would be taking a pile of camera batteries up the mountain ..."

Oh, where did I suggest, and, what "pile"? Funny .. did you sleep well? Anyway, 3 batteries vs. battery pack is a difference. But somehow you have a point - only providing a battery life (CIPA) of 280 images this cam seems to be limited for many jobs. Otoh, you can take those 280 pics in record time :-)

I close this case now with one last remark from my side: a non-centered tripod mount on such a capable camera is just a bad idea resp. IMO a design mistake, that btw has been criticed even for smaller compact cams. But no prob: Buy it, use it and be happy with it.

Nice cam + basic design mistakes > should cause poor sleep for some guys (not me :-)

Well, in principle yes. But do I want to carry battery packs always? Mountains can be high. Or maybe I just got the idea.

Time lapse?

Edit:
Another point: Why causing the neccesity of having to demount the cam just for changing the battery? At night not always welcome.

richard4566: I'm concerned about it being manufactured in Thailand. My D800E and lenses made in Japan are perfection. Not a squeak! Other Nikon DSLR and lenses I've used made in Thailand, many quality, fit and clunky issues with not as high a level of "perfection".

What kind of lenses are you comparing?
