Sony RX100MII tested at Dpreview. QX10/100 shipment start today.

Today is the DDay for the new QX Lens cameras. They are marked as ready for shipment on Amazon US (Click here). And the QX100 counterpart, the RX100MII just got tested at Dpreview (Click here) and it earned a Silver Award:

“Overall, the RX100 II is virtually untouchable in its compact camera class. For anyone simply looking for the best image quality from a compact, the RX100 II is the answer. Enthusiasts, however, should be cautioned. Anyone who picks up the camera will love the images it produces, but someone looking for a more satisfying shooting experience might need to look elsewhere.”

This is definitely the best real-compact camera with zoom lens. I say “real” because many of the so said “compact” cameras are too big to fit comfortably in your pocket.

(UPDATED- Sold Out) The cheapest FF camera in the world is now the Sony VG900 (1145 Euro or $1,545).

Question: How low can the price of a Full Frame camera drop? Answer: 1145 Euro! That’s what you pay right now for the Sony VG900 at Redcoon in Germany (Click here). Damn would I love to have a cheap NEX-FF photocamera for that price :)

UPDATE: It’s now sold out!!!

Converted in US dollars the price is $1,545. That’s lower than the already superdiscounted Nikon D600 ($1575 here on BigValue) and the Canon 6D ($1749 here on RedTag).

Sony A99 price drops at Amazon US (third party reseller) and DE. Also Canon lowers price.

Third party resellers at Amazon are selling the A99 for less than $2,600 (Click here). Price drops are also ongoing in Germany (more here). And Sony isn’t the only one lowering the price of FF cameras. A Canon 5DmarkIII for example can be found for $2,550 on BigValue eBay which is $800 less than the original price. The days are gone when Full Frame cameras did cost a lot of money.

P.S.: I still don’t know the price of the ILCE-9 (E-mount) and A9x (A-mount) cameras but I heard the NEX-9 is likely going to be priced close to $3,000.
