Today is the DDay for the new QX Lens cameras. They are marked as ready for shipment on Amazon US (Click here). And the QX100 counterpart, the RX100MII just got tested at Dpreview (Click here) and it earned a Silver Award:
“Overall, the RX100 II is virtually untouchable in its compact camera class. For anyone simply looking for the best image quality from a compact, the RX100 II is the answer. Enthusiasts, however, should be cautioned. Anyone who picks up the camera will love the images it produces, but someone looking for a more satisfying shooting experience might need to look elsewhere.”
This is definitely the best real-compact camera with zoom lens. I say “real” because many of the so said “compact” cameras are too big to fit comfortably in your pocket.
