Yes, it's bigger. A whopping 7.7mm ... less than a centimeter .. in one dimension (and of course ignoring that the other 2 measurements, while very nearly a wash, are in the Sony's favor). So yeah, Ms. Tham's assessment is correct: it's like comparing a pack of cigarettes to a brick.

You win, Doc - congrats! :rolleyes:

And for the record, as a cyclist myself, either of these cameras will easily fit in the pocket of a cycling jersey. Just a reference point from the post I first quoted.

Take it as you will /shrug

Her wording, and the implied tone, made the RX100 sound like an oversized brick compared to the mentioned Panasonic to my mind. And that's just not the case.

But again, if you agree with her assessment - great. Obviously those like myself, will not. Just the way it goes.

My responses to your comments are after the colored text. Anyone interested in actual size comparisons, click the links I inserted above.

You don't want the RX100. That's fine. No reason to distort the facts to fit your "argument", however.

For the record, I've held, but do not own, the cameras you mention in this post so I have no vested interest so to speak. I just have a problem with obvious distortion.

I'm near Wenatchee which as you probably know is right over the Cascades on US 2. Depending on where you're at we may be able to work out something. Particularly as I will be on the coast side for a few days this coming week. Could possibly meet you either going to (Tuesday morning near Everett) or coming back (Thursday near Burlington/Mt Vernon) from my destination.

As to the kit lens, the only thing I have close to that is this DA 16-45 I have for sale on the forums.

Thanks for the interest!

For Sale: DA 16-45 f4
lens
I purchased this lens from B&H about a year and half ago, thinking it would be my primary "walk-around" lens. That really never came about as I tend to grab my primes in most situations. It looks, and performs, like new and there are no cosmetic marks or imperfections on either the body or the glass. Price is $245 which includes the PayPal and shipping fees.

A couple of 'product shots' and some images from the lens












For Sale: DAL 55-300 f4-5.8 lens w/JJC aftermarket hood SOLD
This lens came in a Pentax K-x kit I used to own. While the camera and short zoom are gone, I've kept this. This a great copy of this lens; quite sharp and contrasty. I'm selling it as I tend to favor primes ... but I'll admit I won't be horribly disappointed if this doesn't go. In anything other than really dim light it has been tremendously useful. Covering it with primes is going to be a "heavy" ( :lol: ) proposition. It's in like new condition, and the asking price is $165 which includes the PayPal and shipping fees.

A product shot, and a few images from the lens.










Payment:
Paypal; fees are included in the above prices.

Shipping:
USPS Priority Mail; included in above prices.

Returns:
No returns; items are as described and work perfectly.

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax K20D Body w/extras

Asking Price
$335.00 USD

Item Location
Washington state (United States)

Item Description
For Sale: Currently payment pending

Pentax K20D in excellent condition. I purchased this from forum member dgaies some time back and it has served me flawlessly. Though I've used it extensively (as did it's original owner :cool: ), it looks the same as when it arrived with the addition of the Giotto's glass lcd cover that can be seen in the photo below. The 2 slight wear marks shown are as I received it, and could possibly be removed as they look like some type of foreign material rather than marks of any kind. I never felt the need to bother. Actuations are at just over 25,500; I put approx. 4k on it in the year+ I have owned it.

Along with the Giotto's lcd cover, an Impact aftermarket battery and a Vello wired remote release are included. All packaging, manuals, cables, and software will be sent along to the new owner.










Here is the "wear" mark on the rear of the body. Not really sure what it is, and only once tried halfheartedly to get it off.


And here is the bottom view; if you look at the screw just to the right of the tripod mount you can see something lodged in there. Again, no idea what it is and I never bothered to try and remove it.

PMs replied to, and the grip is still available.

Work has me in and out of town a lot currently, but I'll reply to messages as soon as I get the opportunity. I'll be "updating" this listing next week sometime - or rather completely redoing it - with the addition of a K20D and a couple of lenses. If the grip hasn't sold by then, it too will be included.

Thanks for the interest!

Edit: BG-2 grip is sold pending payment.

Not a deep technical review, but I always enjoy reading what the fellows at Luminous Landscape write about in terms of usability from an enthusiast's/pro's perspective on camera gear.

For Sale:
Pentax DA 70 2.4 Ltd in mint condition. Includes original caps, hood, leather pouch, and packaging. Fantastic lens, but the 77 Ltd that all but fell into my lap a month after purchasing this renders portraits just a bit better. So this has sat unused and really needs to go to someone who'd put it to use.

Asking Price:
SOLD



For Sale:
Pentax BG-2 Battery Grip (for the Pentax K10D & K20D) in excellent condition. I purchased this from B&H as a 9+ item and it's in the same condition as I received it. Which is to say very much like new. No box or documentation was included when I bought it. Works perfectly, but I found I preferred my K20D without the grip ergonomically. Correction: I do have the original box and paperwork for this. Typically I keep all packaging for like items together, but somehow this box ended up with some of my winter sports gear. Box and manual will be included with the grip.

Asking Price:
Price is $65.00 and includes PayPal and shipping fees.




Both items are located in eastern WA state.

Shipping:
Fees are included in item prices and will be by USPS Priority Mail. If the buyer prefers UPS or FedEx shipping add $10.00 to item cost. Shipping to Continental U.S. only.

Accepted payment type:
PayPal; fees are included in item prices.

Returns:
No returns. Item conditions are as stated and work perfectly.

K20D or another model (new to Pentax)?
Posted By NbyNW

Arguably (emphasis mine) being the key word. I'm one of those (probably rare) people waiting for a K-5 or better in a K20D chassis. The only thing the K-7 has that I would like to have on my K20D is the much improved lcd screen for live view usage. I came close to buying a friend's K-5, and I love the files from that camera, but admittedly still holding out some ever-fading hope for a somewhat larger body.

I'm guessing I'll have a K-5 or it's replacement within a year :o Still, I'd take a K20D over a K-7 any day ... for that matter even a K10D which I also own.

For me, numbers 1,2 and 8. Though I get the reasoning behind the vignette in #8. With the first 2 images I feel as though I might be missing something interesting that is otherwise obscured. However, my first post and this one really shouldn't be taken as any type of serious critique; despite what comments I've made I do enjoy all of these images.

As with several other posters on this forum, I know clicking on one of your threads is pretty much a guarantee for interesting photographs :)

Great composition; really great stuff :cool:

It may be my monitor, or perhaps it's just the pp style used here, but overall they seem a bit dark. Still, sweet captures!

Terrific series of a fascinating landscape.

As a geologist I find them particularly interesting, especially the strata in #6.

I like them both. If the bird in the 2nd shot were a bit sharper (which can be very hard to do with a mirror lens of that focal length) it would be the real standout here imho. Anyway, I find it and the first to be very nice images.

Thanks for sharing them :cool:
