The same source that shared the ILCE-7 (A7) E-mount camera info also told me that Sony will launch one more RX camera…the Sony RX10! There are no specs yet but it’s easy to guess that this camera will be placed in between the RX100MII and RX1/R and use an APS-C sensor. But unlike the two other cameras the RX10 will have strong competition:
Amazing sensor and superb hybrid EVF/OVF (specs and pricing at eBay (Click here)).
Extremely compact and low price (specs and pricing at eBay (Click here)).
Nikon Coolpix A
Compact camera with fixed lens (specs and pricing at eBay (Click here)).
Canon PowerShot G1 X
Compact camera with zoom lens (specs and pricing at eBay (Click here)).
As you can see there are plenty of alternatives and the RX10 has to stand out in “something” to compete against them. I hope this will be the first RX camera with built-in EVF. Now let’s wait for sources to tell us more about the RX10…
In summary: The next (soon to come) Sony announcement could bring us the new NEX-FF camera, the ILCE-7 and the RX10!
