tabloid: A tiny one inch sensor might suit some people, but if you have to do a lot of cropping, like I have to very often....I wouldn't bother.
Ok it does 4K , but the general formula of the camera doesn't make sense.
Bit pricey as well.
If it had a APS size sensor for the same price , then in my opinion it would definitely be a camera to look at.

If it would have an APS-c sized sensor it would be MUCH bigger and heavier. Same is true for mFT: much bigger and heavier. So Sony is making the most out of it if you ask me. Pics out of that Sony sensor certainly at base ISO look really good, good DR and colours noise nothing to worry about Above ISO1600 is where it gets tricky.

Nukunukoo: I hope this means further price reduction for the RX10 II... Then again, there is the Lumix G80/G85... Both do great videos but the latter has a lower price, interchangeable lenses and IBIS. Then again, the Sony also have other video features that I want...

Anda better sensor. And a swivlescreen which for video is very nice.

SmilerGrogan: The boys are going to have a hard time explaining why anyone would need anything besides this camera. This latest version has everything photographers and video DPs would ever need. With the addition of a few 2Ks and 5Ks you could shoot a Hollywood feature (as long as you didn't need to composite any CGI or chroma key) and still have plenty of money for craft service.
Bravo Sony.

No:
- Cine lenses?Anamorphic? GH5 IQ? No.
- Fuji or m43 prime lenses will outperform this seriously.
- 100-400 F4 to F6.3 Leica is another thing.

This is probably a very good P&S. And for someone not bother with 1Kg with you always and fine with the IQ the lens/sensor combo it is will probably be the ultimate choice (FZ2500 or new FZ might challenge it sooner or later).

For anyone who does not care about lenschanges and wants better IQ m43s, APS-c ILCs and FF etc will provide a more flexible and higher iQ alternative.

orion1983: Now, as the focus as the far biggest weakness of the RX10III seemed to have turned into a strength and also touchscreen has been added, I forgive Sony the lacking ND filter and will start saving money. In the meantime, the first buyers (often abused as beta testers) will tell me if my high expectations are being met ;)

This cannot compete with GH5. Not IQ wise since the sensor is better and the lenses are better. In video the difference will only be bigger. We know what the RX100V sensor puts to the table. So it is not a comparable cam in my book. As P&S it is excellent in all likelihood. Wonder if they get the 4K overheating right this time...

Jorginho: Seems like a fantastic P&S camera. Looking forward to reviews. Sony pushes the 1"format again. Wonder how many people are going to complain it is too expensiive...If it is excecuted well in my view it is not. Wonder when the next 1" sensor is going to debute though. It is quite good for its size but it has been basically the same for years now.

The point is that reallife differences in IQ between RX10 and RX100V are minimal. Looking at the simplistic studio scene, also comparing these two in DxO. I was talking IQ. The OSPDAF is a great enhancement, sorry that I was not clear. I purely mean IQ.

On article Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III Review (564 comments in total)
In reply to:

arbux: Long story short - Olympus thinks it's Canon, it can put 5 years old sensor in the camera and cripple other key features (here: autofocus) and sell it well.

"The E-M10 III's image quality is generally rather good"
about AF "while it was capable of giving performances to match its peers, we didn't feel we could trust it to do so."

Well I agree like most 20 MP would have been commendable. But sorry: look at DxO and compare D7100 with D7200 and D7500. Over the whole range at every ISO their performance is identical. This means that for 4,5 years the IQ indeed has been identical. And now D7500 is at 20 MP vs 24 on D7200. So it is not that strange.

In reply to:

Marty4650: This camera isn't designed to be an upgrade from the EM10 II.

This is just a tweaked, refreshed and improved version of the EM10 II. No one in his right mind would upgrade from the Mk II to the Mk III. However, it now becomes more attractive to first time M4/3 buyers moving up from smartphones, or sideways from other camera brands.

I tend to disagree. 20 MP would be better but long story short: there are very few cams like the GX80 or G80 on the market: good at everything. They do not overheat, they do shoot action well, 4K video and stabilised, small sized lenses and lots of them are very good reasons to buy a m43 cam. The Oly is mostly let down by its aging AF system (for action), its sensor is not that much of a problem but yes: 20 MP would have been better.

Fair review, probably just missed a silver award and I find it refreshing. Always giving an award becomes so predictable. So well done dpreview. I think this being a really good cam for beginners with room to grow is spot on and quite compliment.

In reply to:

Jfitz8: I’m looking to get into photography more seriously now but don’t have a DSLR yet. I’m looking for something which can deliver similar results that the GFS 50S. Does anyone know of something suitable around £900 mark? I was actually thinking of renting one first to try out before to be sure. Do any of these look suitable? https://fatlama.com/london-rentals/camera-hire

Indeed A7R is the best you can get. Oly HiRes mode is not for anything but stilllife and then you get sort of this IQ (in fact better when it comes to colours, but worse dynamic range. Rest is similar). EM1.2 is also good for landscapes with some movement but it is also 2000 euro. Em1.2 is also a fantastic sports and action cam with very good IQ by itself.
So I would go A7R if IQ and usability is your golden combo. Not good for sports and action. But for portraits, landscapes, stillife, architecture this can deliver. Be aware of shuttershock btw.The shutter is loud and it cause a motion blur at times.

I use pinhole camera's too. I sold my Sony A6300 to get one. No more overheating.

Well we mFT users are used to pay a lot for less. No worries. If it is all about technology and not much else we know where to buy a Sony.

Videochip: Holy Cow! Look at what you get for $649!
For the unhappy campers: Don't look at what you don't get. I doubt that you will find one camera that has all the features and functions that you would love to have at the price you would love to pay. Hey, I have been taking pictures for 70 years; yes, since I was 9 years old, and I can tell you, that perfect situation doesn't exist. I love my compact E-M10M2 and would trade it in for the M3 only if it had a swivel screen and mic jack. But, my guess is that Olympus wasn't willing to spend the additional cost of engineering and retooling for a new chip at this price point -- while considering the cost/feature balance with other models. By the way, I have never seen a camera that I didn't like. I focus on the photos I can shoot with them. And thanks DPREVIEW guys and gals for all your hard work.

Gx80? Much better C-AF with burst, good for action. G80: a little bit more expensive but has weathersealing.
Good (I hope): that UI change. I hate it on my EM1.2 and it is about the only downside of that cam in my view.

DNature: Looking forward to the update, especially the hybrid log gamma as I take all my videos on my GH5 in V-Log L and HLG looks like it will be a better option for me. Now I'll just have to find a V90 memory card.

I am hoping the focusing will be better, but being contrast based, I can't see a huge improvement in the auto focus.

Well...it works great for stills. And that is C-AF in bursts. GH4 is not far behind my EM1.2 with PDAF. I was pleased with its performance for sports etc. So why not in video? Not that I am really expecting a lot but it is not impossible. No one would have believed CDAF to be good for action shooting until Panny showed up with its DFD AF system.

On article Nikon D850: What we hoped for – and what we got (403 comments in total)

I don't understand this remark "The D850 features a 45.7MP BSI CMOS sensor, which promises both excellent dynamic range at base ISO and very good noise performance at high ISO sensitivities. And no, Canon die-hards, those two things do not have to be mutually exclusive."

I think you mean ".....And no, Canon, those two..." What have "diehards" have to do with this? According ot you, Canon excludes these two to be combined, not their fanbase. May be I missed something, but are there Canon diehards who say this IS mutually exclusive? Serious question, I have never seen that in general and I am sure you do not mean the odd Canon fan...

kuklukklak: This camera, while looking good, is unlikely to be a game changer for Nikon. Their DSLRs have been awesome but they ve been struggling anw. And with a couple of good lens to match the resolution, the system will cost at least $6K, which is clearly only suitable for a very small portion of the market. Mass market is where the juice is and Canon is still the king in that segment. They have 13 among 20 best selling cams on Amazon. And the new 6D2 is in top 20 and behind only the D750 and 5D4 in FF. I hope they come out with smt to compete in the growing mirrorless market. Dslr is shrinking anw.

No. Massmarket is where the competition is. Niche is where the money is. Which is why Fuji went MF for and Hassy with their X1D. There is money available for cams between 4000 and 10000 euro and there is not as much competition. Look at the 1000-2000 dollar segment. You have LOADS of options., All brands are involved and mirrorless as well as DSLR and one new cam after another. Nikon D800E has been viable for 6 years. D810 os a minor upgrade. Canon had nothing that can compete surely not IQ wise. Only 5D.4 is a cam with a seriously good sensor. So who else can give Nikon a run for their money,. Pentax? Hahaha. I love the K1, the price is superb but it can't compete with this for specs. Sony? With what? Not with their A7RII since it is not good for sports.A9 is great...but only 24 MPand costs considerably more. Their A99II like all those translucent mirrored DSLR just never caught on. D850: many users with the right glass, great specs and not expensive at all I think.

I am not aware of doom and gloom. there are those who predict disasters for sure, but more for Canon than Nikon. Canon is not going bust, but with their constant castration of cams like 80D, EOS-M and worst of all 6D.2 I can understand that....
Nikon: sure their 1"endeavour has been a letdown. Nikon1 could have been mFTs nemesis. Oke.
But how about the D500? Look I am a mFT shooter, I have Em1.2 all I buy is for mFTs. But I can see the brilliance of the D500. I can see that D7500 is only a letdown compared to other Nikon cams, but not compared to the competition.

Now D850. The potential is so huge. GFX50 IQ with D500 speed. excellent lenses, price is less than half MF price. Does shoot 4K video. If it delivers that, not only will D3 and D4 users have a serious look, so will Canon FF users. Sony A9. Well, great cam but it does not look so great anymore to my mind. 46 Mp vs 24 Mp FF....and still very good at action with good speed. That is a tough nut to crack. So congrats to Nikon!

From APS-c to FF is not an "upgrade". It is different, so to my min dthe right question is "Should I change?" if we are exacting of course.
