A day with Sony’s versatile RX100 VI point-and-shoot

Without a doubt the most interesting feature on Sony's new flagship point-and-shoot RX100 VI is the new zoom lens. That Vario-Sonnar T* 24–200mm f/2.8–4.5 glass is much longer than the 24–70mm equivalent on the previous model, making the RX100 VI a more versatile compact shooter. You may not always need the superzoom, but it's nice to know you have that option -- especially on a camera that fits in the pocket of your shirt or jeans. Aside from the upgraded lens, the RX100 VI looks identical to its predecessor and also comes with a 20.1-megapixel, 1-inch Exmor RS CMOS sensor, though it does feature a better Bionz X processor (the same one that's on the full-frame A9).

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 VI is priced at a premium, but sets itself apart from the lesser-priced competition.

The Verge
The RX100 VI is a Goldilocks camera that hits the sweet-spot between portability and capability. It’s compact enough to go basically everywhere, but still provides much better photographic and video capabilities compared to your phone.

Camera Labs
Dedicated vloggers may remain better-served by the lens on the previous model (now mildly updated as the RX100 VA), but if you’re after a do-it-all pocket travel camera, the RX100 VI has taken the crown.

TrustedReviews
If you can afford it, and are prepared to put up with its foibles, the Sony RX100 VI is a phenomenally capable pocket travel camera.

Tom's Guide
While the Sony DSC-RX100 VI is a very capable bridge camera with powerful features, at $1,200, it's too pricey to recommend to most people. However, if you're looking for a compact point-and-shoot camera with many specialized features and customizable settings and you don't mind spending more money, then the Sony DSC-RX100 VI may fit the bill.

In many respects the RX100 VI is one of the best compact cameras out there. Certainly there's nothing else that can touch it when it comes to performance.

There are a lot of reasons to love the RX100 VI, but they come side by side with a lot of reasons to question it as well. I do want to make sure to continue to state that this is a good camera. It takes good photos, good video, and it's remarkably powerful for its size.

Pocket-Lint
There's no other camera this tiny that offers the sheer quality and versatility of the Sony RX100 VI. Yes, it's very expensive, but this has been designed to be the very best small compact on the market, and taking into account its image quality, its excellent autofocus system, its zoom range, its viewfinder and the options it offers more creative photographers, we believe it achieves that goal.

This RX100/6 stands out from the rest because of how many great pictures I can make with it in such a short period of time, and how easy it is to do this: just point and shoot.
