Sony Cybershot RX100 II- In for Review

Sony Cybershot RX100 II- In for Review
August 2012, Carl Garrard
Sony's RX100 II is now at Photographic-Central for review! As many readers know I wasn't quite sold on the implementation of the original RX100 but this model, although more expensive, addressed some of the design decisions that I criticized. Obviously one person's opinion does not shape a camera design, but it's obvious to me that my criticisms weren't alone on the RX100 since the successor incorporated those very criticisms into the next design. Good for Sony to do just that!

I'll be putting  Sony's RX100 II through some serious challenges here and will report my final opinion in the review forthcoming. Obviously the RX100 was a big hit sales wise, and endeared many to it's design. That doesn't mean it didn't have some short comings which I wasn't shy to point out early on during its release (contrary to those who wished I didn't criticize it). So the question is, does the RX100 II address them enough for me to be excited about it?

A long time fan of the Cybershot lineup of cameras (pre 2006 cameras that is), this division has made some of the most interesting cameras in the modern era. Lets see if  Sony's RX100 II lives up to my expectations.

More soon!



  1. Looking forward to your review. I remember that your comments (when the RX100 came out) weren't so popular but I agreed with you then. Now look at the RX100 MII, it has much of what you commented on. Do you think the IQ is the same as the RX100? Please let me know.


  2. Mmmmmm, RX100 MII $800, Sigma 18-35mm f1:8 $800. If the lens wasn't such a sweet deal I would consider this camera. Got to take care of the main camera first I guess. :)

    Looking forward to the review though.
