That day went to sony centre and tried for fun only.
M5a really impressive.. Fast and nice bokeh background, does not matter to zoom to 70mm the aperture still reached on f2.8.. That was great CC. Compact camera.
Just without a touchscreen, unlike M6, but M6 worst on lens aperture, that is not considered fast lens.

If wanna look on m5a can search from dpreview.

i went to the curve sony centre few days back, seem they didn't have the testing unit there
anyway pre-order a m5a, hope it reach before my next vacation, any info u get about the ETA for the new m5a?

I will prefer a touchscreen though tongue.gif too bad the m6 lens choice is dissapointing (at least for me)

had been travelling with a bulky dslr for past few year, hope the M5a change my photoshooting experience.

ya i did shortlist A6300 too, with 18-135mm lens, slightly over my budget, not too sure worth the extra bucks as i rarely change lens, it will defeat the purpose to have a DSLR blush.gif

anyway some store is offering 4299 for the new M6..

If you always play dslr , you won't accept those smaller DC image quality as well. Especially when zoom to edge of the border.
Do you know what i mean right. 👍

To be honest A6k with kit lens will be win win the M5a or M6, just except on night time or indoor with bokeh shoot like M5a, the background still quite creamy bokeh with nice colours output.

Finally decide on the rx100mark 6 before the SST implemented.

Any recommended case?
For fullday usage, usually how many battery is needed?

They quote me 3830 (cash) with few freebies, I preordered before SST implemented, when i ask if the price will be same after 1/9, the sales can't give affirmation

No call yet about the pre-ordered mark 5a, anyway i had buy a RX100 m6 instead, so far i m impressed with my new camera. No regret.

only con - is the battery really running out very fast, 1 batttery can only last me for 2hours of shooting during my daugther birthday party.
lowlight performance - acceptable, but i didnt have a mark V to compare with
touch focus is a plus point
focusing is fast

Am looking for a good travel case before my travels though,
was wondering if the Sony leather case is worth the price but couldn’t seem to find anyone else selling a used or cheaper leather case for the RX100. Any recommendations?

I've been using the M3 for the last 3 years and decided it's time to upgrade.

So I got the M5A (still prefer the fast lens compared to M6). Bought it from Australia since good price there. Price was A$999, but can claim back GST at the airport. So net it was around RM2.8k.

Plus they give A$50 voucher to buy accessories (I bought a spare battery).

Which version of RX100 are you using?

1. No difference from old playmemories protocol.
2. If older RX, then there's no QR code for you to scan. Start a send image on your camera first, then turn on Imaging Edge App on phone, at the top, it should automatically detect your camera's name, then click on it. If it doesn't detect, then go to your phone's WiFi settings and manually click on the camera's ID. Then go back into Imaging Edge App and you should be able to see it pop up automatically now.

but maybe the camera is old already and it is time to upgrade to APS-c.

my story is reversed from yours..i came frm aps-c sensor (nex3) with several choice of lenses..but one day i realized its very difficult and inconvenient to carry around camera kit for casual shooting in family outings.

i sold all of my gears, and bought rx100 mk1 (rm1439) in 2013 if not mistaken..well,the camera is ok till now..just a lil bit dent because it fell several times..overall, mechanically and function all working.
for pic quality,u cant compare la between two but most importantly,it is pocketable with decent pic quality.

for ur case,just think carefully if u want to jump ship to camera with lens.besides inconvenient to carry around bulky kit,u have to hold urself frm spending unnecessarily on lenses haha. well,once u have it, kit lens (18-55mm) is not enough.u may also tempted and want portrait 50 1.8, wide 16 or telephoto with up to 200mm.

so now in 2019,i rarely bring my rx100 anymore coz my phone camera is the one that i use most..lol
