Sony RX10 with 24-200mm f2.8 zoom and 1" sensor !

QuoteQuote:
The new RX10 camera will get the same 1 inch sensor of the RX100 series! Multiple trusted sources confirmed the RX10 will have a one inch sensor and a fixed 24-200mm lens! UPDATE: I re-asked my source about the aperture and I will get an answer soon. They said it’s f/2.8 but I am not sure if it means that this is the constant aperture through the full focal range. Don’t misunderstand me, this sounds like an amazing camera! A 24-200mm f/2.8 zoom on such a large sensor is nice.

Same camera as the RX100, only with a longer zoom and double the price?

Looks very much like an A3000, except 4 times the price.
Sony sure are spewing out product variations at the moment - RX family, NEX family, Alpha family.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC RX10 First Impressions Review




QuoteQuote:
Sony have a long history of making interesting cameras and have, in recent years, produced some of the most innovative products and technologies. Not all of these developments have caught on but we've admired their pioneering spirit, even when we haven't always loved the products.

The RX10 combines aspects of two of the company's most imagination-catching cameras - the newly announced RX100 II and the near-legendary R1 from 2005. It revives the large-sensor, long-zoom concept of the R1, but utilizing the same 1"-type BSI CMOS sensor, meaning it can offer a balance of high image quality and long zoom in a sensibly sized package. In this case it means the RX10 is able to offer a 24-200mm equivalent F2.8 lens.

That relatively big sensor means the RX10 is not a small camera - it's about the height and width of a small DSLR and, though its body is slimmer than that, its 8.3x lens adds a stout, weighty bulk to the proceedings.
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 key features

20MP 1"-type BSI CMOS sensor
24-200mm equivalent F2.8 lens
Built-in 3-EV Neutral Density filter
Flip-out, 1.3m dot (VGA resolution) rear LCD
1.14m dot OLED viewfinder
ISO 125 - 12,800 (expandable down to ISO 80)
Approx 10fps continuous shooting in 'Speed Priority mode'
Wi-Fi with NFC for easier connection (with compatible devices)

RX10 Autofocus

I think the RX10 AF system is a significant development, maybe changing the state-of-the-art in the field.

According to http://www.imaging-resource.com/news/2013/10/16/sony-rx10-review-first-impre...-bridge-camera , the AF has a few bold characteristics:

- a lens motor capable of starting, moving AND stopping the lens within 0.02 ms. Amazing! The lens motor has a piezo-driven brake to achieve this!
- a sensor and processor capable to read-out AND process ALL 20 MP pixels at 60fps (which is behind its extraordinary video quality). That's less than 16 ms for a full image analysis, much less for a focus region.
- capable to perform microadjustments of focus which enable the AF to determine focus direction w/o visible wobble or hunting.

Consequently, the camera seems to have no PDAF sensels or a hybrid AF.

We may just enter an era where CDAF gets fast enough to make sensor-based PDAF obsolete.

Will be interesting to watch.

Side note: The RX10 has something like F7.6 equivalent aperture (F/5 APSC-equivalent aperture). That's fast enough to make AF speed matter.

I got my father an *ist D and FA80-320 lens. He shots PEF files and I develop them for him. He sometimes wants a little wider... and using the AF properly confuses him a bit... I dig this for him...

I was gonna buy a panasonic fz200 for my parents as a X'mas gift....
Now this bad boy comes to town....I think I will have to wait for some reviews to justify it's c/p.....
There are two things that I am concern the most:
1. zoom speed(vs fz200)
2. weight(it might be too heavy for my parents to carry with on a trip)
Thank you for post these useful information!

The price difference is not trivial though:
US$550 for the FZ200, $1300 for the RX10 [at B&H]. Probably won't drop much before Xmas either.

Indeed, rawr, the price difference is significant!
If my parents didn't complain the 1/2.3" sensor's low light image quality, I would have bought fz200 a year ago...

However the weight plays more important role than the zoom speed to me.
I think I have to take my parent to the physical store and let them make the final call
After all, a good camera is the one that you want to carry it with you.

Engadget reviews the RX10 and says it’s the “best fixed-lens camera we’ve ever used”

QuoteQuote:
Ultimately, we love the Sony RX10. In fact, we struggled to populate the cons section down below with anything other than a high price tag. But your $1,300 goes a very long way here, and if you need to capture sharp images and full-HD video clips in pretty much any lighting condition, with a vast focal range, you'd be hard pressed to find a more suitable shooter. This is the best fixed-lens camera we've ever used, and we wouldn't be surprised if the RX10 Mark II, whenever that comes about, is the only comparable model worth considering.
