Yea, Sony are dropping out more cameras than girls off the estate drop kids... It's hard to keep up.

As Dave said, didn't the RX10 II get launched with the last a7R II? That was, what, June 2015? How can they justify that?

Apparently RX10 III is not meant to be an upgrade of RX10 II, but more of a second option with different lens

RX10 mk2 is still superior! Constant f2.8 for the win

I disagree owning the RX10 ii. I'd say a 24-600mm f2.4-f4 will definitely be more useful than 24-200 f2.8

The difference between f4 and f2.8 in dof is negligible but the difference between 200 to 600 is huge. You could then use the rx10 iii as a 600mm replacement camera for video. RX10 is not a light gathering camera anyways so you can forget about shooting in low light with either.

At 200mm the rx10iii is probably somewhere around f3 so the difference is even less.

You can't do smooth zooms or snap zooms with the rx10ii so the "constant" f2.8 doesn't even do anything.

I guess it has same bad video focussing and soft image in 240fps and very bad low light performance, But 600mm might solve bokeh issues also it might increase 

focussing distance further.

And it loses the ND filter too, so no constant aperture and no ND. I think it's worst but now it gives the option to go Sony Slog to all those FZ1000 Pana users. I just don't understand why they named RX10III, does it means that we won't see a new 2.8 lens version? That would be sad!

It's like Double the Price of the Panasonic FZ1000. 

Not sure if its twice as good.
