I have the mark 1 as an underwater cam and presuming the mark 3 is better again, they are an awesome little pocketable camera (not so small in a housing)

I cannot speak of its performance but I can tell you that the new viewfinder is very impressive, it even has a tiny little flash. When I tried to test the AF speed in the Sony Store it seemed fine and worked well, and the IS in video mode was quite extraordinary.

I may go back again tomorrow and see if I can stick my own memory card in to take a closer look at the RAW files.

For me a camera like this is all about image quality and portability. I could go on a cycling trip with this in my jersey's back pocket and not worry about weight etc. It is ideal to take to a discreet event and not worry about the camera and lens(es) ruining my dinner jacket-look.

I even like the brochure.  :o
1D X + backup + different L lenses etc.

I have not bought it yet. I resisted. But for how long who knows?!

But, the more I test and play with it, the more I like it. The EVF senses when you put your eye next to it so it deactivates the LCD and activates the EVF. The AF is not too slow, and there are quite a few different settings for the AF point which is moveable. The insane little flash, just makes me smile, and as I gradually get to understand the menu system a bit, things gradually begin to make sense. I even like the brochure!!

Go to your local shop and have a play with it yourself. Make sure you do the pocket test, as that is the icing on the cake. It is so light you hardly know it is even there.

Now if it only had whatsapp built in.....  ;D :o

Congrats Rienzphotoz, bet you are going to love it.

To be able to carry something that small around in your pocket and still get amazing image quality and video is awesome.

I still have not bought it, but have played with it extensively now, so most likely will.

I checked with my local dealer today, they could not even find the MK III in their system.  That's strange, since they sell a lot of cameras at their two local stores as well as operating a big online store (onecall.com)
 
I was in Seattle last week and stopped at Fry's to see if they had the MK III.  What a disaster.  They had only two Canon DSLR's, which were two 70 D kits, one Nikon DSLR Model, and a Sony or two.  The other 90% of their display was empty.  Same for P&S cameras, no high end ones and lots of empty spaces. 
I'd say that they are in big financial trouble from the look of things.

Thank you ... ever since I got into the mirrorless camera world, photography has become "easier" ... I don't have to worry about which camera + lens to pack in the bag due to size weight concerns, now I can take 2 mirrorless cameras and 5 lenses in a small bag ... from what I've watched and read about the RX100III, I am hoping that it'll be a happy compromise with quality images in a tiny package ... the thought of being able to carry a good quality camera, (with RAW output, view finder, built-in ND filter, tilt screen and a great aperture), all the time is awesome.
Will post some pics once I get my hands on the camera.

Washington State requires that I pay sales tax, and my accountant makes sure it happens.  Just because B&H does not offer the convenience of handling tax for me, does not mean that its due.

My local Fry's store hasn't had consistent stocking of products for as long as I can remember... at least a decade.  Then again, I care about weird stuff like film capacitors....
