Sony DSC-RX10

Digital Photography Review has published an in-depth review of Sony's £850 RX100/R1 hybrid.

Snippets from the conclusion follow:

"The RX10 has all of the features you'd expect on a premium compact: manual controls, a high resolution EVF and tilting LCD, dynamic range enhancement, 10 fps continuous shooting, and built-in Wi-Fi."

"The DSC-RX10 easily bests other premium superzooms in photo quality. Its 1" sensor is 2.8X larger than the 1/1.7" CMOS in the Olympus Stylus 1, and 4.1X bigger than the 1/2.3" sensor in the Panasonic FZ200."

"Another part of the equation is the RX10's excellent 24-200mm F2.8 Carl Zeiss T* lens, which is sharp from corner to corner."

"The RX10 isn't a compact camera [but] the body feels 'just right' in your hands. Controls are placed in such a way that they can be accessed with one hand."

"Ultimately, the DSC-RX10 is a niche product that will most likely be picked up by photographers who want a 'best of everything' camera,. For those who the camera appeals to, it's a fantastic product, and one that is worthy of our highest award."
