New RX200 rumors from China (probably fake).


The Sony RX100 price history in Germany (Source: Idealo).

For the first time I found new RX100 cameras priced under 500 Euro in Europe -> Photodirect (eBay Germany). And in US you can find them for less than $600 on eBay (here on Slidoo). Does it mean the successor is going to be announced soon?

Rumors is floating around a web created by the Chinese Forum XITEK. It says the RX200 is going to be announced the first week of June. It will have a 28-140mm f/1.4-2.2 zoom lens. The body is more or less the same of the RX100 but it includes a pop-up viewfinder.

I hope my sources can tell me more about it soon but to me this sounds like a fake rumor. A 28-140mm with that bright lens and having the same large 1 inch sensor would require a huge lens! It’s almost impossible to maintain the current RX100 size!
