The RX100 series has always been technically impressive, but the addition of the brighter lens, viewfinder and ND filter extend its utility to a huge degree. Owners of its predecessors should seriously consider upgrading unless they need more zoom reach.
Our concerns about the handling leave us concluding that, if it had a credible rival, there’s every chance the RX100 M3 wouldn’t get a Gold award – we’d like a more enjoyable shooting experience from an $800 camera. Ultimately, though, the additions to what were already the strongest cameras in their class leave the RX100 III literally peerless. At which point it has to go one better than its predecessors, and receive our highest award.
It is not a perfect camera but the RX100M3 is the next yet unmatched Sony RX jewel!
