The Sony RX range of high end enthusiast orientated compacts equipped with Sony’s acclaimed 20mp 1″ CMOS sensor have rightly gained a loyal following and forced the competition to up their own range of “proper” high end compacts.
Recently Sony announced the RX100IV which contains a newly designed “stacked” 1″ sensor, improved EVF and 4K video capture. But such new technolgy doesn’t come cheap and that’s why the Sony RX100III (which is only around 14 -16 months old) actually represents rather good value.
I’ve tested the mark 1, 2 & 3 and the mark 3 was unsurprisingly the best model. The spec’s of the RX100M3 are far from dated and the results it can produce are top-notch. Whilst am sure the mark 4 may move things on a little further. right now if your in the market for a top end compact the Sony Cyber-Shot RX100M3 looks like a bit of a bargin (whilst you can still get hold of one).
Here’s some RX100M3 Images form last year:
