Is there any update on the A New Large Sensor PowerShot? Is it going to be a fixed lens like the Nikon A or have a fast lens with a small range of zoom?
Definitely RX100 is better unless you don't want to spend that much.
Without the flippy screen it's not worth it 'Techradar' seems to think so too with a non committal review.
If push came to shove I'd buy a G12 at the lower price but then it's not a lot different to my G11 which is working perfectly well since it's overhaul.
I was really hoping for something more radical The only major changes are a better lens and the loss of the screen which makes it a no go for me and I am not shelling out 500 quid just for the new lens, for my needs it's just not justified. I'd be replacing something OK with something mediocre!
Nikon just stole the Canon's thunder!
I wasn't liking the direction Canon was going and so I am glad I got the RX100. At first I was a little disappointed that the Sony does not have a macro setting so I decided to see how tight I could crop an image to get macro details. Sample below with uncropped and cropped image. For something I can put in my pocket when I don't want to carry my 7D and 100mm lens, I am satisfied with the Sony performance
The G15 weighs less than the P7700 Because they got rid of the vari angle screen and have a lighter smaller body and lens. If I was happy with a smaller body I'd go for the Sony RX100 but I already have a Canon Ixus A4050 which I bought when my G11 wasn't working and took weeks to get repaired because they had to get a new back from Japan. So I didn't need a smaller camera, there are plenty around to choose from including the RX100.
I wanted and expected a step up from the G12 not a step back into the past.
Incidentally the P7700 still weighs less than the G12.
And, as we are all going to end up with a Sony FF in the long term
Haha, I'm glad someone just went ahead & said it
The center resolution/contrast of the Zeiss lens is itself reason enough to get the RX100, not to mention the fact that it's a Sony EXMOR sensor (but don't expect the pixel level dynamic range to match that of the, say, D800).
Furthermore, I can't believe the bounce-able flash isn't better marketed-- such a simple idea, yet a game-changer for P&S flash photography. Sony really does seem to be the more innovative camera company these days...
Count me disappointed, too.
No flippy screen - that rules it out entirely.
Not only that, but it's still missing the GPS and 200/400 fps video modes introduced in the S100!
And also no 1080p/60.
The f/2.8 lens on the G11/G12 is fast enough for me - I don't need a faster lens in a compact (I have a DSLR if I need that, but it doesn't fit in my everyday backpack.)
I'm not at all interested in the G15. I'm going to shop for a used G12 on eBay instead (to replace my G11).
I'm interested in the S110... maybe it'll be FF
Yeah; haven't heard of that one before.
Now the question is when is the official announcement?Yup 13 is bad luck in the West and 14 bad luck in China.14 bad luck in China? Maybe you mean 4?
Well I know that 4 and 9 are unlucky in Japan so maybe the person I quoted got it wrong?
I got my RX100 today - very positive after playing around with it for a while.
