(SR4) Sony RX100M3 is coming now with popup viewfinder and new fast lens!


One of my trusted sources (Many Thanks!) just told me that the RX100M3 is indeed going to be announced next week on May 1. It will have a pop-up built-in viewfinder! It has a “different” lens. And indeed if you compare the two small images between the RX100/M2 and RX100M3 you will notice a small difference on the lens. Having a f/2.8 aperture at the tele end is really a huge improvement. And that pop up viewfinder is also an amazing addition. This two features alone will make it worth to upgrade from your current RX100!

Question to the source (and other sources): I know for certain there is more to come (beside the RX100M3 and A77II). Can you tell me more about that “other” stuff? Thanks 🙂

A6000 reviews at CameraLabs and Photographyblog. And first SAR readers first impression roundup!


The Sony a6000 Extensive Highly Detailed Review

Well, time to focus on the A6000 again with a long list of links to new reviews and SAR readers first impression feedback.

Gordon laing from CameraLabs says:

The Sony A6000 is a good solid interchangeable lens camera with one major advantage over rivals: effective continuous AF which works pretty much anywhere on the frame for stills or movies. If you’re shooting stills, it also works at the top continuous speed of 11fps, and if you’re filming movies you can even fine-tune the AF speed and response time. This takes the A6000 beyond what any other mirrorless or DSLR camera offers at this mid-range price point, shooting it to the top of your shortlist if you’re after a camera that can confidently shoot or film sports or even just your kids running around.

Photographyblog writes:

The Sony A6000 is a full-featured, responsive compact system camera that delivers excellent images in a variety of situations, all at a very competitive price that significantly undercuts its main rivals.

Rock:To share my album http://goo.gl/ylpHHV about A6000 with comparison to NEX-6 about features and ISO from 100 up to crazily 25600 just for fun! 🙂

Axel:I just got my a6000 from Amazon today, and to my disappointment it does not have an electronic level gauge (unlike my NEX-6 and 5T). I just hope that this is just a matter of fixing the firmware – the level gauge functionality is very important for me, and quite frankly I cannot understand why Sony has left it out.
