Sony has announced the Cyber-shot DSC-RX100, an enthusiast compact camera based around a 20MP 1" CMOS sensor. It features a 28-100mm equivalent lens with F1.8-4.9 aperture range and image stabilization and is the first Sony compact to capture Raw files. It can shoot 1080p60 and capture 17MP (16:9 crop) stills simultaneously. It features a lens control dial and a 3:2 aspect ratio sensor (the same proportions as most DSLRs). It's also the first Sony compact to feature the company's 'WhiteMagic' LCD technology, promising a brighter or lower-power display. The RX100 will be available from July at a price of around $649.

It's funny that Sony,canon,Nikon can't give us what the xz1 has, f1.8-2.5. It's tempting this rx100. Gives s100 some competition. I'm waiting for the xz2 so in the meantime, I'll give the rx100 a pass.

At RRP of about RM 2K it will have to be very good to beat canon, pana and oly
especially with xz2, s105 or lx6 about to be launched in a couple of months

An in depth review here.

Me too... since Sony sells the sensor. I'm more interested on what Oly/others does with it.

Cybershot moniker doesn't inspire much confidence for me.

Wow Very expensive high end point and shoot
At 36mm thick Sony Rx100 is not as pocketable as Canon S100 but it will put
pressure on Canon to get future S105 right with bigger sensor and faster lens
but maintain current size. S100 is such a lemon with decentered lens
and now lens cannot retract issue. whistling.gif
S105, XZ2 and LX7 will be out soon. Sure must be good one drool.gif

Samsung has entered the game with a Schneider-Kreuznach f1.4 lens's EX2F.

Let's compare the lenses,

RX100's Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar f1.8-4.9 28-100mm
EX2F's Schneider-Kreuznach f1.4~ 24-80mm
Olympus's M.Zuiko f1.8-2.9 28-115mm

XZ-1 has the "all time brighter" which Samsung's EX2F will be the brightest and widest with f1.4 and 24mm SWA. With this combo, low-light landscape will be much easier.

RX100 might have the best "branded" lens since it's from Zeiss. Most of you know that "Sonnar" means "bright" and represents large aperture. But definitely not the brightest in telephoto.

I believe EX2F will "theoritically" give the best optical performance with that focal length, less zoom ratio, better image quality, I guess. Schneider-Krueznach from German, almost as famous as Carl Zeiss, I wonder how both of the German glasses perform.

XZ-1's M.Zuiko lens is very sharp even wide open. I own XZ-1 and was impressed at the first sight after some comparison with my Sony Alpha. It was until I replaced my kit lens with a better prime lens, XZ-1 performed nearly identical (if not better) than my kit lens. The focal length and the aperture are very convenient. I meant, where else you could get telephoto-end with f2.9?

I hope RX100 could perform better in low-light with its larger sensor. With enough ambient light, Carl-Zeiss will not disappoint us with its T* coating, but I wonder how about low-light.

S100 and LX5? Come out with something near to the 3 mentioned models, then only we talk.

I wonder what Panasonic will bring to the table on 18th of July with the new LX7.

You're forgetting the Fuji X10. Ah maybe it's too big compared to the others. blush.gif

The Samsung comes with the 'grip'... Looks like its more ergonomic compared with the oly, Sony, canon, panny. And also the tilt screen, which would be great for self or couple portraits.
