Nikita66: The RX100 is about $500 too much. For $1200 you can get real sensor, i.e., the a6400 + 18-135, which is still more compact than any other APS-C or FF camera.

maybe but i t won't fit in your trouser pockets

I'm not sure at that focal length or distance from the subject these test shots are made but my RX100VII is insanely sharp at all focal lengths except at the full zoom (200m equivalent) where it ever so slightly soft in the corners for most normal subject distances

Viramati: I bought my mk6 a month ago and it has to be the best pocketable camera on the market but really a mk7 release in less than a year is really annoying

Fairly silly review with lady repeating the same line about Sony's Eye-AF 3 times, I mean what does she expect the camera to be able to fix on an eye through grass (I believe neither of the other cameras have this feature anyway). Also the continued almost Hamiltonesque use of soft focus photography to illustrate the images (and the music) is really annoying and almost sexist. Why can't they shoot some older men or women with interesting faces and move away from this misogynistic glamour photography

Yet another step backwards for the photographer. First we lost the non reflective screen a few years ago and now SD card reader and USB ports. I recently upgraded my mid 2012 model with an 1Tb SSD drive, 16gb RAM and hopefully it will serve me for years to come.

So sorry to hear this, I first learned Lightroom through one of his video tutorials. RIP

alextardif: Leica Q...sure, expensive jewelry, but one that's easy to justify even for a hobbyist, provided there's access to disposable income. A one-time $4,500 treat, yeah, sure, why not.

SL? Not so much. An exercise in keeping up with technology by Leica. An entirely new system (presumably aimed to be a workhorse for a working pro) that simply can't possibly gain traction like the crazy growth of Sony's FE, simply due to unattainable cost with barely any real ROI. EVF is a thing of beauty, but... not much else.

The Q is far more than a piece of jewellery and possibly the best digital camera I Have ever owned or used

Angrymagpie: I'd go with something like the a7rii 28/2, but the Q is really pretty though...

I have the A7rII and the FE28 and can tell you that the lens on the Q is a load better as is the whole shooting experience

I wonder what firmware they used to test as the banding in the shadow areas which was really bad in the first version has been eliminated in the latest update. Without a doubt the best fixed lens digital camera I have ever owned.

Shame about the banding which seems to be about the same as I get with my Leica Q

Will be sticking with my Leica Q
