Many SAR readers keep asking me about the possible new RX200. I got no info about a replacement coming in early June and I am 99% sure the Chinese RX200 info was a fake. As you know there was a post on Xitek saying the RX200 would feature a 28-140mm f/1.4-2.2 zoom lens and a pop-up viewfinder. The only camera with pop-up viewfinder I saw was that picture of the Kodak 35 sent to me by a SAR reader
So don’t wait for the RX200. If the RX100 fits your need just grab it. You can find it for very good prices like the $589 at Sunset Electronics (Click here) and in Europe for 480 Euro at Photodirect (Click here). Both with free shipping an no extra tax to pay.
