Rule number 1 of the camera industry – you don’t make a brand new 24MP full frame sensor without using it yourself, or in as many cameras as possible.

Rule number 2 of the camera industry – Leica must extract massive profit margins from rich customers.

Sony announce sequel to my favourite small camera of all time – the RX1 II is here with variable OLPF and 42MP sensor but no 4K!

Granted this is more a stills related camera than video but the Sony RX line is a favourite of mine – it has always packed absolute cutting edge technology and innovation into tiny cameras. And who doesn’t like tiny cameras? (My review of the RX100 IV is coming tomorrow, by the way).

The original RX1 in 2013 was almost like a full frame Leica when it came to street photos but jacket pocket sized with full frame video a camera slightly larger than a pack of cards. I loved it and used it often for photos, unfortunately video quality was lacking. With the 4K capable sensor from the A7R II in the new RX1R II model, does it deliver an improvement?
