It's been pretty common knowledge at this point that Sony's RX100 line of cameras have been the best point and shoot cameras that you can buy. Their latest iteration is now available for mass consumption. Have you picked one up? Share your impressions below.
I'm definitely interested (though at this point I've had both the RX100 I and RX100 II, do I really need the III? Probably).
A couple things I'm curious about:
- How usable is the viewfinder? I can see using it, especially in bright light which washes out the back screen.
- 1080p output via an MP4 wrapper -- this is awesome. In the M1 and M2, you could only get MP4 video out of the camera at 1440 x 1080 resolution (ugh). If you wanted true 1080p, you needed to use Sony's weird proprietary format -- basically, this means I couldn't edit together videos on the go with my iPad.
- Slightly wider angle lense -- I love myself landscape and wide angle photography. Granted, you lose out on nice portraits since it's basically capped at 70mm -- but you get f/2.8 there. Nice!
