Looking at the samples the Sony Zeiss 24mm outdoes this on all fronts?

This is the best opinion article I have seen on dpreview in longer than I can remember.

BobYIL: Hasselblad's CEO, IAN Rawcliffe, adds ".......... the pocket-sized Stellar models are proving extremely popular.... " and "This is most likely the last of the rebadged Sony cameras from Hasselblad, following the recently closure of the company's design facility in Italy."

They are closing the design facility because they can't keep up with the orders..

Cra*sters, I have pre-ordered 10 after reading this. I didn't realise demand was so high!
Should hopefully make a nice margin on ebay.

This reminds me of the Sony Trinitron Technology in reverse - from curved screens, to flat in one direction to flat panels!

Here's the trouble - labels screwed the roses over.
Now the roses need a retirement fund.

I captured some amazing pictures at the front in the crowd with my new RX100 :-)

OzK: I think The Stone Roses have it right with their contract. They are looking a bit old and grey, enough people have made money from them.

Now it's their turn bless them.

If you don't want to agree to it then don't!

Its their show - so many people have sponged money from them. Now it's their turn!

Sad Joe: Comment: it's hard to imagine large numbers of D800 owners using such a lens (with its recommended price of $599) as their everyday lens made by DP Review - NOT SO!

Wedding last weekend (we do wedding cars now having been professional wedding photographers for many years) their professional was using a Nikon D4 with a crappy old SIGMA zoom lens - so this cheapie new Nikon lens would be a real step up!

As we have time on our hands we watch the new breed of professionals from a distance - we never comment as its the couples wedding and we would not wish to upset them on their special day - BUT - some tips for checking out if their real pro's or not:

1: Expensive camera - but its clear that they only know how to fire the shutter and take 12 shots of everything
2: They check the screen after every shot
3: They fiddle with their flash just in case its died on them between shots
4: The camera must NOT get wet or even damp - a tiny drop of rain kills cameras such as a Nikon D4 - NOT!

Ahh--- but with the new sony's like the A77 you don't have to look at the screen every shot as you have a preview appear immediately in the viewfinder!

BeanyPic: Is it actually a Carl Zeiss lens. I think its a licensed lens. The way you can tell is the Word lens is missing on the lens front. The word Lens can't be used as it's not an original Carl Zeiss lens. A little trade secret on the market that more people are getting to know about. As for the rest of the spec it looks good and I like the design.

Every Zeiss lens in Sony cameras have generally been better than G's. Without exception to be honest. Anybody disagree?

Plastek: Hotshoe on a compact that you can hide in your hands.

Am I suppose to hold a thing like that by flash gun, or a camera?
People asking for a hotshoe on something this size should smash their heads into a wall.

Agree - hotshoe's would be silly... but all companies should introduce wireless flash capabilities into cameras like this.

Based on these samples which compact camera has best DOF out of all of those in the video above. What are the dimensions we should be comparing these cameras on... who is ready to start a table?

In reply to:

shlam: All this belly-aching about pixel density :-)

From what I can see, there is practically no difference between the image comparison of the 20MP RX100 and the Nikon J1 with same size sensor at 10MP, at ISO 1600 and 3200.

There are other things that are more important to image quality (as opposed to this pixel peeping); things like lens quality and color rendition...

Couldn't agree moew.

In reply to:

Lofi: 1080/60p. The Nex-5N and the Nex-7 already have problems with that. This camera seems to be even smaller. So does it overheat?

Unlikely due to the size... bear in mind the iphone 4s and Nikon sensor is Sony and have no such issues.

OzK: So excited about this camera. Being a DSC-R1 and now Sony A77, 5n and TX9 user I have waited for something more pocketable to complement these camera's with a medium sized sensor and a carl zeiss lend. F2.2 would have been fine but with F1.8 with a Sensor that size I think Sony has surpassed everybody's expectations. The 5n and tx9 and maybe even the R1 will now be sold to make way for this baby! Surely the Nikon V1 and J1 will be hitting bargain bins soon... Nikon, when it comes to compacts and mirrorless you get it oh so wrong... as for canon, compacts yes. Mirrorless no.

But it's just too big... to be honest I'm disappointed with the sensor size on this. Yes you're right the 5N is better... but it won't fit into my pocket!
Thinking about it I may just stick with the R1 and A77!

OzK: The main thing this review provides though is hope - that one day, perhaps, just perhaps there will be a Sony R2!

But... physics denotes that the RX100 will never have the beautiful DOF and Bokeh of the R1. Please Sony re-release the R1 with an updated back... I will buy 2!

The hair detail is fantastic - from that on her head, and the facial hair is exceptionally detailed growing on here nose and above and below the lip too.

Great detail - don't get the concept of who will buy this camera... it's almost a niche of a limited niche!
