On this review of the new Sony RX1R II Chris Niccolls from the Camera Store in Canada test out the latest Sony large sensor compact camera and gets back with some interesting insights.
The Sony RX1R II is an interesting update to the original RX1R – it brings an even higher megapixel sensor to the same small body and the same lens and adds a new AF system. Much of the rest is pretty similar – same lens same look and feel and same size. Even the video capabilities didn’t seem to change much (i.e. forget about 4K).
So what did Niccolls think about it? well from the looks of it it still seems to be the best bang for the buck if you are looking for the perfect high end compact – it still isn’t cheap (by any means) but compared to the Leica Q it is less expensive although the Leica does have its strong points (you can check out a quick comparison near the end of the video).
