  • You forgot to mention the better dynamic range one can get with a larger sensor. Richard
  • Frederic, I think we are "on the same page"...two different lenses that each will have some sample-to-sample variation. I don't take DXO too seriously (though do pay some attention when the same ...
  • The comparison is not really accurate. The FZ1000 was $900 US when it was first released and is now available for $400-450 used.  The FZ2000 is approx $1200 new. The RX10 III is stellar.  How much ...
  • Pixnat2, Maybe you completely glossed over the take home message? Lens sample variation makes lens-to-lens comparison somewhat meaningless (unless of course many lens, using a collection from ...
  • I hear you re the weight. I currently own an FZ1000 , which I bought after handling the RX10 III for a week (returned it due to AF performance). What really struck me about the RX10 III (beside ...
  • You might check out DXO assessment for the 24-120 and 24-85, where the conclusion is that the 24-85 is optically superior. Of course, the big complication is the issue of sample variation. ...
  • Ok, fair enough. I've yet to encounter an weight limit issue (more an issue of what I can/am willing to travel with). If moisture is a concern, I'll bring my Oly E-M1, 12-40 PRO and maybe the ...
  • I would never have a 1" bridge zoom as my only travel camera. There are times when I'd want a smaller camera (my RX100 or a smartphone), shoot wider, have better high ISO performance (I was only ...
  • The RX10 IV does have a back button AF option, was covered in some prelim youtube reviews and slide 7 of DPR's hands on news: ...
  • SLG, That was my take as well....the A9 (the D500, possibly also the D850) having the "best in class" AF-C tracking under challenging conditions. Will be interesting to see what folks say when the ...
  • Oh come on tb, lighten up. Having the best camera for the money is a very subjective thing. I can easily see where an RX1 might be considered the best value for the money ( though not by me).
  • Tom, Appreciate your comment. My surprise was more due to the overwhelming praise for the E-M1 v2 for BIF and my not taking into consideration the challenges of capturing specific types of BIF images.
  • I am a little bit surprised you are struggling to get some of your BIF with the E-M1 v2. I have not tried it yet (still own an E-M1 but have figured out how to use it reasonably effectively for ...
  • As you know PC, I also briefly owned the RX10 III and like you, returned it due to the AF responsiveness. I'm interested in the RX10 IV for the extra reach and supposed AF improvement but must ...
  • Nice post Alwyn. Maybe another question is how many people will now buy the RX10 III as it's price drops with the next gen release . For me, i was not interested in buying an FZ1000 at it's ...
  • Replied in New RX10 IV
    What I'd really like is a camera that gives hands a vigorous vibration massage and  has such amazing IBIS that the shots are crystal sharp even at low shutter speeds. :-) Richard
  • Steve- That is really the best thing about having multiple cameras/kit if one can afford it. Different TOOLS for different projects. I think the bridge zoom camera evolution has been very exciting, ...
  • Martin, I don't have finger fatigue with the FZ1000...it is much lighter than the RX10 III (though has a similar wide diameter lens base). The fatigue I experienced with the RX10 III came from ...
  • Replied in New RX10 IV
    Digital Nigel, Great example of how phenomenal the RX10 III lens is. I used the camera for a week and was similarly impressed. The stellar quality of the lens really showed upon cropping 600mm ...
  • Replied in New RX10 IV
    I bought my FZ1000 on eBay for $435. Missed out on one that went for $425 and saw that another went for $450 (an extra battery came with it). I assume the price will now drop some ($400?) With the ...
