and in 1st image there are some chromatic aberrations around the window frames.this is normal for a camera like that? Dust particles are really small, and manage to sneak into everything... Wouldn't dust on a small, high pixel density sensor cause the loss of more pixels than a large lower pixel density sensor. I feel that listing them as 'con' will slowly help pressure camera manufacturers to adopt them wholesale. Then there's the IQ threshold beyond which improvements in IQ are less relevant to most people because the photo has to be magnified more and more to see the difference. I use it in "real world" shooting, without any trouble, just like I used to do with my old M5 : two hands and eye in the viewer. It's a unique camera, but it doesn't make it right. In such a tiny body you can't have a power supply for 1000 and more shoots like in a EOS - DSLR. Pro tip: we've found that keeping the camera in C-AF yields noticeably swifter autofocus performance. You are the only one claiming there are "poor optics" in this camera. Dylthedog, do you seriously believe that optical resolution will improve with non-flat scene? I've just spent a week shooting with mine while trekking in the mountains - lovely landscape shots, with plenty of resolution and superb colours. If you're not, you're also in luck. We talk about a tool here - camera. Wow, this is an expensive point and shoot. Vote now to have your say on which was best. An RX100 has about 2 stops better low-light image quality and dynamic range compared to a top-end smartphone, and has 25% higher resolution. It offers carry-everywhere, high-resolution full-frame image quality that’s bolstered by an impressive autofocus system and reasonable depth-of-field control from its 35mm F2 lens. F8? In more dynamic situations, the fiddly buttons, dials, and menus would drive me crazy and cause me to miss a lot of opportunities. and you still replied the same way I wastrying to avoid. It will still show noticeably poorer resolution than you can get with the same sensor on A7R II with a good lens.Flat or not flat... the problem is with poor quality optics and the scene will not change that. Barney: The comparison tool results are shocking. I was trying to show you how awesome its performance is based on controlled lab tests. No stress at all! I whish they could lower the price a lot more to fill mine :/. Though the RX1R II bears more than a passing resemblance to its predecessor, there are a lot of changes. (Sarcasm :) ). 42.4-million-pixel full-frame Exmor R back-illuminated CMOS sensor; ISO 100-25,600 native, ISO 50-102,400 expanded; 35mm f/2 Zeiss Sonnar T* lens; Pop-up OLED EVF with 2.4-million-dot resolution; Tilting 3in LCD with 1,228,800-dot resolution; 399 phase-detection AF points It is razor sharp on the 42.4 megapixel sensor! Here are two facts:1) No E-mount lens comes close to the sensor resolution.2) In dpreveiw Studio comparison test we see A7R II gives better sharpness than RX1R II which means RX1R II has worse optics. It doesn't have to fill need for you. Resolution is not so important for street photography. What is ultracompact supposed to be? Historically, fixed lens cameras (be they folders, rangefinders, or SLRs) have always been less expensive, not more. "we use the a7R II as opposed to the RX1R II to demonstrate this because the RX1R II's subpar lens quality wouldn't yield a fair comparison in this off-centre section of our scene". Processors double in power every two years, but i bet you could use an upgrade right now. I am guessing since you are here it is option 1. The buttons, though, are mushy enough to make you wonder if you've hit the right one (if you even hit a button at all). Photo by Carey Rose; F8 | 1/125 | ISO 125, The lens, a holdover from the original RX1 and RX1R, still holds up pretty well to the RX1R II's extra megapixels. Again, no question the Sony delivers fantastic image quality. Yes it has some field curvature, so not ideal for shots of brick walls but normal landscape images shot with this camera are stunning in richness of detail, I'd say on par with Leica S with 45mm lens. Camera is forcibly reduced in size to appear small, as it is the only competitive 'advantage' it can muster. It's probably best reserved for situations where you need to take handheld shots in very low light without resorting to the highest ISO settings. This is your chance to have a say in which of this year's products was the best. Probably not gonna happen though, is it? 2- Put the Silent Mode in one of the Custom buttons, so when the subject is too fast (like bikes, cars, people running, sports) just turn it off.. so simple!And oh.. The Q is a dream. Primitivelamps,I am sorry for your experiences that unfortunately mean that you were unlucky to not experience anything better if you claim bad version and perfect camera.If it is just bad version then every reviewer has got a bad one including dpreview as can be seen from studio comparison tool. While A7R II is sharp RX1R II looks like either completely out of focus in comparison or more likely it is that the optics do not have the resolution.You do not get those 42 megapixels and the images are far from sharp at 100%. For RX1R II that would mean smaller resolution but the same sensor technology (should help low light as well). In fact, you'd be hard pressed to find a camera with better low light image quality. DSC-RX1RM2. My a7r motherboard fried for no reason in my camera bag, and it was just over a year. Everything has improved. You are the only one claiming there are "poor optics" in this camera. Just don't get why some people despise the Sony menu system so much, given that it's structurally no different than Canon or Nikon, just less intuitively tabbed. Your experience goes against others', so either you're doing something wrong, or there's something wrong with your camera. Great. Or is Sony just putting this camera even more out of range for most of us? Not only did Sony tell me the shutter mechanism was not under the 1yr warranty (they kept that under wraps), but they won't deal direct with Joe Bloggs when things do break - mine had to go to a third party who then had to send it to Sony so I ended up with 2x bills. The rubberized thumb pad and front grip could stand to be stickier (feel the thumb pad on the Olympus PEN-F for comparison).

There are two further issues no one has thus mentioned (I may be wrong as there are almost 600 comments). Below compact size, or above compact size? It's just unecessary/neutral. Makes me think if you dialed up a little more sharpness and contrast on the A7rii you might have a completely different story. There's even a demo of AF-C tracking a dog outdoors in daylight. For some more preliminary impressions of the RX1R II, check out Barney's Gear of the Year article, and the accompanying video below. Laowa 15mm F4.5 Shift Lens Review: What is a shift lens, and when is it useful? I could understand them trying and failing to design a great and intuitive menu system. I use it in "real world" shooting, without any trouble, just like I used to do with my old M5 : two hands and eye in the viewer. However, the only adjustments I can find for the EVF is brightness and color temperature. "Of course I won't. The Leica also has a full-frame sensor, a fixed length lens (28mm rather than 35mm) and a compact type body. So from that point of view even A7R II is not yet the ultimate sharpness benchmark but we have no better right now ON THE SAME SENSOR and RX1R II loses in sharpness. Like Olympus' OM-D line of cameras, we recommend taking some time to figure out exactly how you want to use the camera to achieve an optimal set up, and then leaving it that way. In this interview, wedding photographer Vanessa Joy talks about her favorite gear, the challenges of shooting a product video during a pandemic and why communication is key to successful portraiture. It has the same sensor as A7R II but very poor optics. Not for everyone but I'm glad I exist in a mad universe where things like this can happen. Not only did Sony tell me the shutter mechanism was not under the 1yr warranty (they kept that under wraps), but they won't deal direct with Joe Bloggs when things do break - mine had to go to a third party who then had to send it to Sony so I ended up with 2x bills. In other words, software-based stabilization. I am amazed at the amount of praise I see all over the place for Sony cameras in light of all their infuriating drawbacks. You my well be missing the whole idea of a dedicated lens on a small body. In fact for me any sensor of 1:1.7 size and smaller is unacceptable. ;-) Good luck in your personal adventures! I hear the A7R II does a good job of focusing Canon lenses... Or you could just stop pixel-peeping. Just a better camera all around. So your argument that it is all down to field curvature breaks on its head - sorry but you touched on the wrong angle to prove that optics are not as bad as they are.Jpeg clearly applies some sharpening as it is sharper than raw. But a smartphone does, just like your $1000 (!) Can you tell me any of the highest quality primes other than telephoto that have OS? I'm talking about A7rII and A7s. Zooms are great.

As far back as glass plates or sheet film, there's always been a market for high-end, fixed-lens compact cameras. And it is not only optical resolution that is bad on RX1R lens that was tested by DXO. I think if a serious bug was found they'd fix it - I found their service with the light leak issue very good - the store phoned me and swapped it in 2 days flat. Works fine for me. I don't find the lens + body pricing argument relevant because the focal length is fixed at something that is way too limiting for me. The end, Is there not to much noise here? The Cyber-shot RX1R II's lens has all the hallmarks of top glass, that blue Zeiss logo to the side being one giveaway. Give me the 12mp sensor in the A7s or the new 20mp BSI sensor Nikon is putting in their D5 (assuming it's sourced from Sony???) It's not necessarily the most feature-packed or expensive smartphones that move. It's noticeably slower (and noisier) than say the 35mm F2.8 on the A7r II but at least it doesn't close down the IRIS in APS-C mode, like both the A6300 and A7r II do.The MF experience is bad. ), CP+2021 going online-only amidst rising COVID-19 cases, The Content Authenticity Initiative shows its first real-world samples of CAI-attributed images, OWC's new Copy That app makes it easy to backup photos from your iPhone, iPad, Sony announces new SDK for camera automation aimed at product photography, Have your say: Vote now for best camera of 2020, Have your say: Vote now for best prime lens of 2020, Have your say: Vote now for best zoom lens of 2020, Studio test scene added to Sony a7S III initial review, Capture One 21 released, includes new editing tools, features and improved performance, Adobe Lightroom is now native for both Apple M1, Windows Arm platforms, Sentons CameraBar uses ultrasonic tech to add virtual buttons to smartphones, Leaked ISOCELL presentation slide suggests Samsung entertaining the idea of a 600MP smartphone sensor, Report: Japanese camera makers could see supply chain constraints due to supplier factory fire, Converted Sirui lenses offer low-cost anamorphic options for L and RF mount users, Interview: Wedding photographer Vanessa Joy on communication, Covid and 'speed-posing', Gift guide: 2020's best photo books for photographers, DPReview TV 'best and worst' awards in pictures, Video: How to safely make a 35mm daguerreotype at home, The Sony RX100 VII and a7C are the best cameras for travel, DPReview TV: The best and worst cameras and lenses of 2020, Video: Blind smartphone camera test highlights what qualities people value in smartphone photos, Viltrox unveils 33mm F1.4, 56mm F1.4 APS-C prime AF lenses for Sony APS-C camera systems, China’s Chang’e-5 probe beams high-res color panoramic of the Moon's surface, Film Fridays: The humble, plastic Soviet-era cameras that summited Mount Everest, Overall responsiveness, compactness and image quality make for a powerful photographic tool if you can get by its shortcomings.

Why can't Sony design a camera that is simple to use? I bought the original RX1 shortly after it came out. But this is not reality! But I suspect that setting this camera up for zone focusing will be difficult due to its poor ergonomics and menus. And that is because those are SENSOR ONLY tests if were reading carefully.

With the Cyber-shot RX1R II for example, Sony has somehow managed to cram a high-res electronic viewfinder, a Zeiss Sonnar T* 35mm F2 lens and the same full-frame 42MP BSI CMOS sensor and autofocus system from the a7R II into a coat-pocketable body.
