I will buy an A7 III when the price hits the 2000€ mark in europe. I won't accept this ridiculous "Sony-Europe-Pricing". All other manufacturer just change $ to € which represents the VAT which is included in the european prices. Only Sony adds some hundreds of euros. The experience shows the prices will match pretty fast.

A lot of wasted space. You basically get a pretty big backpack with the space of a small one.

Looks like a good camera for vloggers, but it's not on par with the competition in the same price range. Looks like poor build quality and the control layout is very limited.

Nice image, but how did they verify that this is not a fake? I mean it's not really difficult to fake a pixel on black background.

It seems like you have to buy the expensive standalone 15-45mm , if you want it in black. Thats really disappointing. I really hope that there will be a kit version with the black 15-45mm.

Akgbkd: Xt 20 is still miles better for slightly more.

999$ with the 16-50mm... 400$ more. I wouldn't call that slightly more.

I think they pushed the right buttons. It's pretty lightweight and small, not much flares against the light and the center sharpness is great. Though it underperforms at the corner, but that was to be expected.

Looks nice, but it's still too heavy even for an f/1.4 lens. This lens doesn't make the Sony A6xxx series more attrative to me. I still miss some smaller good quality lenses. I would have prefered a f/2 lens.

Why is the Panasonic G9 in the list of 2017? The release date is Jan/Feb 2018! Therefore it's impossible or at least difficult to judge about this camera.

And this one is even better.

Yes, that's strange. The lens of the Mark I is definitly sharper.

These Pro lenses are really only for the ones out there who need this one stop more depth of field and light.
Everybody else is better off getting the 45mm 1.8. It's 80% cheaper and 70% lighter.

CyeJoeBob: The Canon is around 1-1.5 stops better in low light against the 1" sensors and nearly on par with the Panasonic LX100 less.
But RX100 III/IV/V, LX10, LX100 are 1 1/3 stop faster at the wide angle and 2 stops faster at tele end.
If you considers this, then there is almost no difference between the Canon and 1" cameras and the LX100 is a bit better.

@ Franz Weber
That might be right, though the difference is definitly barely visible. But at that price point I expect more than that just a good daylight camera.

Some great pictures and some rather boring and interchangable ones.

CyeJoeBob: I really considered buying the Nikon 5600 because of it's low weight, but why is the touchscreen restricted to the right side while looking through the viewfinder? Doesn't Nikon like left eye shooters? That's the showstopper for me, as I hate nice feature which I practically can't use.

Yes, I have tried. And big surprise it works, but you need some weeks or months to get used to. Not everybody is a "both-eye-shooter". It's like wearing your watch on the other arm. Not immpossible, but uncomfortable.

Nice image quality, but it's still a camera with a lot of wasted potential. It's nothing special about this camera and at this price point I expect something special.

The already 3 years old Panasonic LX100 has a much more interesting feature set with more interesting lens. The RX100 IV/V has slow motion. RX10 III/IV advanced video features and great zoom range.

The Canon G1X III could have been something to close the gap between the RX100 and RX10. Better handling, with mic jack and weather sealing in a more compact and lightweight body. But they wasted the potential. Hopefully the upcoming Panasonic LX200 (if it's coming) will close this gap.

The G9X II is a surprising pick, but looking closer it's not a bad one. The price is now nearly on par with the Sony RX100, but it has a touch screen, which gives the G9X II amuch better handling.

What makes a camera suitable for students? Can't see a diffence to the beginner category. Canon 200D(SL2) and Nikon D5600 are very similar in many ways.
