The pop-up EVF is fairly ingenious. If that and the tilt screen make it on the the RX-1 vII, it'll make that camera much more attractive.

Respect to Sony for pushing out this upgrade. Great work. Can't wait to see what the RX1(R) V2 brings as well.

$2500 for A7s is not bad at all.

Re. the A7s: I am afraid we talked this one up a bit too much, and Sony realised that they could ask more for it!

Out of my budget at that price. OTOH, the RX-100, with viewfinder is something I might just have to order.

Available for "pre-order" is such a BS idea. Vaguely euphemistic somehow. I mean, what does it express other than you want it real bad and will pay the maximum price?

I see they removed the hot shoe on RX100 M3 that RX100 M2 had. I guess they figured nobody will be using a 24-70 lens for portraits anyway.

They still haven't made provisions for a screw-on polarizing lens to make it complete. The magnetic mounts keep getting knocked off and lost. Its still on my next acquisition list to replace my M1.

All of these additions to the RX100III look to have added some girth to the camera. I wish I could get a MKI with all of the new features of the III minus the swivel screen and viewfinder. I don't mind not having a VF on a camera this small as the VF will probably be tiny anyway. Just think... This new lens and processor and video on the original RX100. Perfection.

Also, all of these video features and still no mic port... Audio is so so so so important. Perhaps more so than the video itself. How hard would it be to stick a mic port on one of these cameras? This would be the perfect little carry-anywhere video camera. Pair it with a tiny little mic and you've got the perfect setup.

FINALLY ditching AVCHD and moving to XVAC is a step in the right direction. Maybe with the Rx100 IV they'll get it right and add the shoe and a mic input - and it'll probably be here at the end of the year with the way Sony cranks out bodies, so we don't have long to wait.

I can see how that would be attractive to some buyers. For me, no tilt screen and no VF and I'm not interested. But then again I wouldn't put any of these in my pocket so the extra few mm isn't a concern.

any idea if the ring around the lens can be used to change aperture or shutter speed?

Some of the most iconic and enduring portraits ever taken were done at 35mm and 50mm so I'm not sure why it wouldn't be used for portraits.

Shallow DoF at 85 or 135 might be the most beginner way to take portraits but not the only way.

I've seen that point made a few times that because it starts at 24mm, its not a portrait suitable lens! Rubbish, zoom to 35mm and with this lens still being bright on a reasonably sized sensor, you have a nice compact portrait camera for casual portraits and still giving shallower depth of field (of course no comparison to CSC sensors/lens combo's). Its a very useful combination of features in my opinion, some compromises but thats what these camera's are all about!

$2500 for the A7s now, maybe sub $2k for Christmas? How fast do these Sony prices come down? The A7R seemed to move pretty fast.

I just bought the original RX100 and I actually find it a bit too small for my hands and wouldn't mind a slightly larger size if it allowed the inclusion of these new features of the Mk3 with a lower price point. $800(!!) for a P&S is a bit excessive if you ask me. That is enough to buy a mid-end APS-C mirrorless camera with kit-zoom and additional fast fixed prime as well.

Anyway, I hope Sony sells enough of these tiny cameras to allow them to eventually lower the price and base all their new mid to high end cybershot P&S and Bridge cameras on their 1" type sensor. This would really give their compact camera business a shot in the arm and a lot of ammunition when competing against the onslaught of cell phone cameras.

It is, but that misses the point of the RX100 series - which is to be compact.
