Everybody loves the RX100 (Photoclubalpha, Photographyblog, Cnet, Outbackphoto, Steve Huff…)

Share


The video on top has been made by Mike Kobal. Done with the RX100…Great!

Everybody is reviewing the RX100 and everybody likes it a lot! David Kilpatrick even says it can match a Full frame….enjoy the reading ;)

Photoclubalpha: “At the best – ISO 80 to 125, stopped down just one full step from full aperture – the RX100 can match or better the typical output of a 21 megapixel full frame DSLR with 24-105mm lens.
Photographyblog: “The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 is the first truly pocketable camera to offer a DSLR experience, and in that regard it could almost be seen as something of a bargain – it’s certainly deserving of our highest Essential! accolade.
Steve Huff: “In my hand the camera feels small but solid with a nice build. If it did have an EVF it would be flat-out my dream pocket cam.
Cnet Asia: “The svelte shooter offers reliable programmed modes, customizable buttons, fast autofocus performance and good image quality packed in a sleek chassis which may appeal to enthusiasts and beginners alike. This is why we chose to award the RX100 our CNET Asia Editor’s Choice.
Outbackphoto tested the RX100 RAW and Lens distortion.

The Sony RX100 is the ONE camera ruling the overall ranking at Amazon (Click here to see). I am now accepting bets. How long will it rule that ranking? Few days…weeks or even months? In Europe the RX100 is still not in Stock in most stores. But I found a good price (490 Euro) via Wowcamera eBay (three in Stock now).

Here are the full search links to the RX100: Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay.

While we are waiting for the late August announcement that will bring us some new NEX lens from Sony let’s take a look to that new 35mm f/0.95 Mitakon lens with E-mount. Someon at Mflens forum found those pics made with the production version of the Mitakon lens. Those are all pics taken at f/0.95 aperture with the NEX-5n. Click on the pics to open the full size image.

P.S. You can find plenty of Mitakon lenses on eBay (Click here). And they outsource to SLRmagic too. Example:

Sigma 30mm and Sony NEX-F3 reviews and RX100 image samples

It’s time for a new review roundup as many of our Sony friends tested new stuff during the last days:

Sigma for NEX
Kurt Munger posted the full Sigma 30mm lens review: “Overall, the Sigma 30mm F/2.8 EX DN lens is pretty good in optical terms, it’s just not a useful combo in my opinion.  Add in the poor flare control, small reproduction size, lack of image stabilization, and this lens really doesn’t make a whole lot of sense.
Sonyalphalab tested both new Sigma lenses: “Their about the same sharpness as far as I can tell, and both suffer from similar flaws as far as very slight corner softening and chromatic aberrations/ fringing. The relatively small flaws on these lenses are totally reasonable though, considering the ~$200 price tag
The Sigma 30mm lens is in Stock at Amazon US (Click here), Amazon DE (Click here), Amazon FR (Click here).
The Sigma 19mm lens is in Stock at Amazon US (Click here), Amazon DE (Click here), Amazon UK (Click here), Amazon FR (Click here).

NEX-F3 and RX100:
Photographyblog posted the full NEX-F3 review: “The Sony NEX-F3 may sit at the bottom of Sony’s mirrorless compact system camera line-up, but for many people this could be the only camera that they’ll ever need“.
Digitalcamerainfo also tested the Sony NEX-F3: “The NEX-F3 is a solid follow-up to the successful NEX-C3, making it the best entry-level compact system camera on the market
NEX-F3 search links at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay.

Next top reviews: RX100 tested by Luminous Landscape and EosHD

Berlin Vignette – EOSHD Sony RX100 test from Andrew Reid on Vimeo.

After David Kilpatrick’s NEX-7 review we have a next top review from one of my favorite websites, the RX100 test at Luminous Landscape (Click here): “The summary judgement for me is that the new Sony RX100 is hands-down the most appealing pocket-sized digital camera yet.” It’s again a must read article!

Also my friend Andrew from EosHD (Click here) posted a full RX100 review: “If you haven’t yet entered the DSLR video world, the RX100 is capable of similar results in video mode and even a similar standard of stills. This is amazing and I cannot believe we’re talking about a pocket camera.

 

I hope we can get this kind of positive reviews about the upcoming A99 and NEX-5F too!
