It's just unecessary/neutral. I think if a serious bug was found they'd fix it - I found their service with the light leak issue very good - the store phoned me and swapped it in 2 days flat. Sigma's 35mm F2 DG DN designed specifically for mirrorless cameras is a compact, well-built lens that produces lovely images. Then there's the IQ threshold beyond which improvements in IQ are less relevant to most people because the photo has to be magnified more and more to see the difference. But none of the small lenses have the optical resolution for 42 megapixel camera if you check DXO. You can also find the additional questions and answers concerning some particular features of the RX1R II. Initial results from our studio test scene showed excellent results at the center of the frame, but the semi-wide focal length and flat field of our scene show some field curvature, and don't really do the lens justice. Now it is $3800. In fact for me any sensor of 1:1.7 size and smaller is unacceptable. The Sony Cyber-shot RX1R II is the world's smallest full-frame camera, featuring a 42MP sensor, fixed ZEISS 35mm F2 lens, pop-up electronic viewfinder and excellent autofocus system. Think of the huge popularity of quality fixed-lens cameras like the Kodak Retina and its ilk, Yashica Electro 35, or Canonet QL17. I yearn for a camera that I can operate with minimal effort, so I can focus my attention instead on my subject. But then, so do 99% of digital cameras sold today. What is the problem ? Add the economic Sony 28mm f2, an excellent lens which is also very small...Or, if as Ray Sachs suggests, 24 mp is enough, then the A7ii with the 28mm f2; both have IBIS for hand held shooting; or, if you want half frame, the A6000 (now $500) plus the sony 28, even smaller (but no IS with this lens.). That's an awfully big sensor that cannot be cleaned. RX1 is ultracompact, RX100 is infracompact; what is compact then? I have no issues with using the control wheel. Fujifilm's GF 63mm F2.8 R WR was the first lens to come out for the medium format GFX system, but we've slapped it on a GFX 100 to see how it stands up to 100MP of resolution. See for yourself how it performs. Click to read more in-depth coverage of body and design, controls and performance. 1) the a7r shutter curtain failed after 12 months on mine. There is a high degree of customizability though - two function buttons, the AEL button, and the four-way controller are all reassignable. For framing your 42MP masterpiece, you now get a tilting screen (but not a touchscreen), and a handy pop-up viewfinder like the Sony Cyber-shot RX100 IV. The new images shed light on how the canyon formed and help better our understanding of Mars. I had to pay $620 to repair it. It looks to me as if the variable low-pass filter was set to 'full' and that may explain the strange softness and lack of definition. No. That is not its strength. This revised output has been greatly improved in terms of both color and noise reduction, while still retaining impressive levels of detail even in low contrast areas. RX1R II does not resolve what the sensor resolves since none of E-mount lenses do that and RX1R II clearly has worse lens. Or see it as a chance to up your game. Even with small primes, that's a big, fat, heavy camera and kit. It just so happens that Sony is currently ahead of the pack. You make a good point. Works fine for me. DXO Mark did not measure RX1R II lens but it measured Sony E-mount lenses and none of them come close to 42 megapixel resolution in sharpness. And still Sony does not seem to get it right.We now have:1) A7R II that had problem with good lenses. it was 24MP... >> I don't know how you came to deduce poor optics for this camera. ?For me, the higher resolution doesn't bring any benefit (16mp is still more than enough for me - 24 is about the most I'd want). Not one. I would not like to see them replace tactile electro-mechanical controls. Never even thought that would be a problem after reading about how fast the focusing is. You don't need a heavy tripod. Measurements are not. The leaf shutter in the lens means you won't have to deal with vibration-inducing shutter shock (and you get insane flash sync speeds), but you better watch your shutter speed if you want to get the most of your 42 million pixels. Next you will claim that those who did studio comparison shots at dpreview are poor photographers or got a bad sample.Measurements do not replace photography and vice versa. While A7R II is sharp RX1R II looks like either completely out of focus in comparison or more likely it is that the optics do not have the resolution.You do not get those 42 megapixels and the images are far from sharp at 100%. ;-) Good luck in your personal adventures! If you look at miksto´s posting history you´ll see that all he does is whine about and come up with clearly exaggerated statements regarding all things Sony. I dont think the lens are interchangeable. This is almost as hilarious as DXO's mark on the RX1-R that scored substantially lower than the original RX-1, which in 2 words is both LAUGHABLE & IMPOSSIBLE!..DXO's ratings are, by the way, the industries greatest joke! Processors double in power every two years, but i bet you could use an upgrade right now. Bekijk en vergelijk alternatieven voor de Sony Cyber-shot RX1R II Zwart. 5 DS R class. Does its performance justify its high price? Sticking to what they do best will continue to benefit them. But this is not reality! It was small, but weighed ton. I think infracompact. Join filmmaker Justin Balog and his cycling partner Remi McManus as they take a trip through the Sonoran desert in the Southwestern United States with the Panasonic Leica DG Vario-Summilux 10-25mm F1.7 ASPH. Did you change the camera settings, or were you using the default settings? With DNG they can get as small as 40% of the uncompressed original (for the lower iso images). ;). I'm sad to report that the experience of test driving a Leica Q has ruined every other camera on the market for me, including the X100F. They are looking for great FF sensor and optics in a small package. You better face reality than stay blind. The best high-end camera costing more than $2000 should have plenty of resolution, exceptional build quality, good 4K video capture and top-notch autofocus for advanced and professional users. US manufacturer Really Right Stuff just released a new lightweight travel tripod, aimed at active and weight-conscious photographers that don't want to compromise on quality. Exposure X6 is the latest Adobe Lightroom competitor from Exposure Software. Go watch this video on the Master, Daido Moriyama and it may make things clearer why all cameras aren't really suited to street photography... Sensor size and heat/statics aside, I suspect the external tubular action of the smaller cams w/zoom (every time the camera is switched on/off, plus at every zoom) could more easily suck dust into the sensor compartment, making the RX100 and LX100 more prone to dust problems than the - more rubustly built and sealed - RX1 or Q. If I look at the dog in full resolution it looks like a bad ISO400 film back in the nineties. Storage space can be solved by losslessly compressing the Raws, that actually makes the 42MP files smaller than uncompressed Raws from a 24MP sensor. The real problem is Sony doesn't offer such a grip for this camera. So often DPR makes claims that are untrue. Use the remote shutter release and the result will be some very serious, high-resolution photos. Former RX1 owner here - I just picked up the RX1R II. As we've noted there's no viewfinder provided with the RX1R, so we're totally reliant on the rear plate LCD screen for shot composition and review. Give it a watch, then try it yourself! Use the manual focusing, and save even more battery.Turn off the WiFi.Airplane mode too, "What is the aim of this brutally expensive camera ?". A camera body so small and so pocketable encourages run-and-gun, hand-holdable shooting, but trying to get 42MP of sharpness dictates careful application of shooting technique, and maybe even a tripod. Coming from manual focus: Leica M and Mamiya 7 and a Sony a7R with a Zeiss ZM 35mm f2.0, and of course the Leica manual lenses. Announced just a few weeks ago, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1R seems to be the perfect union between two of the biggest trends in digital camera technology. Barney: The comparison tool results are shocking. That is a few pixels wide on 42 megapixel sensor. @Camley, yes I think it would be more troubling in a smaller sensor, but a larger sensor has more area to catch dust. The RX1R mk II's resolution and dynamic range just win over any other camera (including any Canon Full Frame camera)...The RX1R also has a leaf shutter :). Nikon cites 'differences in regional laws and safety standards' for the change, which will see its comprehensive international warranty transition to more region-specific warranties by the end of the month. After a flurry of camera announcements from Sony towards the end of 2015 we were not expecting any big launches. I wonder with all the financials issues that Sony has from closing online and stores what is the impact on quality and future support. Komt dat de beeldkwaliteit ten goede? I personally find touch screens annoying, a joy stick control maybe, but that also might get in the way. Oh wait, you don't own one so you should not be sharing your opinion on it. And the compactness of that body is somewhat tempered by the need to carry a pocket full of batteries on colder days. It is a high resolution camera that has to be treated almost like a "medium format" machine - careful framing, accurate focusing, stable hands or tripod. I brought an Rx1rII some weeks ago, and though I don't use it as much as A7rII, I've taken hundreds of photos with it, including with one hand. So whats up with this? The sensor is the same but optics are not. The OV32B offers 32MP stills, 8MP pixel-binned stills in low-light, and 1080p video at up to 180 fps. Yes, i saw the raws and indeed that noise is from editing, much too much shadows lifting. Maybe, but then you are shooting 50mm...The files are definitely smaller, so it will lock up the UI less...So will shooting JPG only (not XFINE). It's just way too much money for what it is. =). I've already had a Fuji X100F and hated it and flipped it the next day for what I paid for it.Sorry, but the small Ricoh is still the superior street machine compared to any other I've tried. The field curvation makes it not the first choise for flat subjects but its sharpness wide open is great and you will have a hard challenge to find a better 35mm lens. The good news is that for most purposes, you'll be fine shooting in compressed Raw mode with somewhat more manageable ~40MB file sizes. Optics on this camera do not fit the sensor resolution. I guess you are happy with your rx 100. others won't be. I recommend using the camera instead of writing nonsense. Anyway you dont have any real world comparisons and i dont know why. I don't see any meaningful fall off in sharpness toward the edges at infinity. It has a film simulation filter applied to it, with some moderate film grain added. Today, there’s the Leica Q, which - yes - is more expensive and comes with a wider lens, but arguably offers a more well-rounded experience. A marketing deception Sony line's of FF cameras suffer from, which seriously affects theoretical optimal performance of used components. I had a spare of course, but even so I'm used to way more from my DSLR and ILC cameras. Bad optics? Again, no question the Sony delivers fantastic image quality. Introduction After the initial excitement of the RX1 with its full-frame 36x24mm CMOS sensor and high-quality Carl Zeiss 35mm f/2.0 lens the firm recently revealed a new model, the RX1R. >> putting long lenses on the a7R range is simply missing the point of the cameras IMHO. NO. The battery concerns, not so much. DPReview TV's Don Komarechka is famous for his snowflake macro photography. Wishing for a touch screen and saying the lack of one is a negative, I see as two different things in a review. Studio comparison clearly shows softness across the field for RX1R II. How is this not discussed at all in the review? But because the camera is so light you can use one of the smaller carbon fiber tripods like a baby Gitzo and a lighter ball or gear head from someone like Kirk or RRS. It sucked. >> come up with clearly exaggerated statements regarding all things Sony. The maximum shutter speed if 1/4000 sec. We talk about a tool here - camera. miksto - sounds to me like you didn't do your research up front. I've found that on very cold days, after the battery says it's exhausted, taking the batter out and holding it in my hand for a while to warm up lets me get a few more shots. That is checked by measurements. It's a flat scene. Like 7RII vs RX1RII vs RX100IV. You have come to the conclusion that all RX!R ii cameras have bad optics even though you don't even own the camera yourself! Everything I said was referenced to me. So while this doesn't hamper the accuracy of the excellent 399-point PDAF system from the a7R II, it does hamper outright speed compared to some of the faster focusing FE-mount lenses in Sony's lineup. I'll stick to my Ricoh and EM1 for now. Adobe Flash has had a tumultuous nearly 25 years of existence, but despite its problems and bugs, Flash was a staple of the internet experience for many years. For me, never. text in color palletes) in studio comparison too to see how bad it is as center looks closer to A7R II than corners. The. Images are uncorrectable and thus unusable. It's hard to imagine the RX1R II as a main video camera, but it would function rather well as a B-Roll-focused addition to an established video system as long as you don't need 4K. I'm currently trying to get the A6300 to work, but finding small, wide lenses that actually bring out the best of the sensor is hard.My current favorite is the Loxia 21mm F2.8, which I'm shooting zone-focussed @ F8 1/500s and it seems to be working. For the most part, I really really like it. Just look at studio comparison of RX1R II and A7R II. :), >> This came right from your boys on the RX1Rii. Of course, the output from this sensor encourages you to shoot in Raw, and an uncompressed Raw mode helps you get the most detail and dynamic range out of those ~80MB files. P.S. Mhmm.. MFT is half-frame. If you need a tripod, what's the point? I wonder if DPR could possibly clarify. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed reading this review, as it has made me all the more confident in my plans to purchase of a Fuji X100F for less than half the price. But in real-world use, the RX1R II does have its frustrations. The lens is actually very good. This edition of the 'Absolute beginner’s guide to film photography' will cover the bare necessities – what you need to get started. > Do you hate Canon because their sensors are always behind Sony's? Obviously it all depends on what you call fast. I am sorry you did not see any better in this life yet. To make it even slower? Thank you RX1R2... " it seems that even for $249, you can't really get what you want or what you need. We're glad you asked. He's a good exemple of flexibility.And please, don't missunderstand this, as I if I was saying that H6D-100c is the ideal camera for streets. Despite mine being outside the affected serial number range. You people who live in temperate climates can all go jump in a lake. And importantly, I don't see any purple fringing - not sure if it's removed electronically but even if, it's done well. This is a key reason behind my dislike of Sony as a company: their arrogant attitude towards end users. Sony is behind the competition on this front and we are yet to see if G Master line up will or will not finally catch up with the competition. Two completely different shutter mechanisms. The gap in performance between Canon's and Sony's sensors is in no way comparable to the abomination that is Sony's menu system. And I'd be much less interested in making photos. Irrespective of whether this is caused by poor optical resolution or plane of focus curvature (or more likely both) it is poor optics. Is the manual focusing ring intuitive? Fabulous little camera and, having tested both, better than a Leica Q (which is even more expensive still). With great image quality, impressive speed and powerful features, it's a compelling option that doesn't require a monthly subscription. And you can see complaints about the soft Sony lenses if you look around but that does not matter. Can't help but the picture of the man and the dog (which is nice by the way) is totally noisy @ISO 125. Camera shake remains exactly the same, it's only more noticeable if you zoom in to 100% on a 42MP compared to 100% with 24MP, for obvious reasons. The end, Is there not to much noise here? Resolution is not so important for street photography. Please let me know where this adjustment can be found. Should you need it, though, when enabled, the OLPF does an excellent job of keeping moiré to a minimum. You are the only one claiming there are "poor optics" in this camera. The boat was bouncing around, and if I'm honest every time I poked around the canopy to shoot the wind buffeted me too, the cold didn't help either. You have to rig it up like with a RRS BRX1 and a good tripod etc etc. The thumb grip makes the camera comfortable to hold, but it’s expensive and gets in the way of some vital controls. Het voornaamste verschil is technisch: de RX1R heeft geen laagdoorlaatfilter voor de sensor. And if you try to hit the zoom button just after shooting an image, the camera will often outright ignore the request, greet you with an error message, or occasionally, enter the 100% view as intended. True. My RX100 for instance has never had a firmware update issued I know of but then it really didn't need one. This is the kind of stock reserved for the most capable of Sony pro lenses. Time to radio in: we're gonna need a bigger card. Not many are able to figure how that plays into their intended uses (the crop potential, the lack a need for a larger tripod or pano rig, good light hand-held pano technique, or even no support at all for dark objectives - all too confusing to contemplate). The one downside of this lens is that it is a unit-driven design. Still 35mm, unchaged aspect. First: because it's a very new (less than 2 year old). We were pretty darn excited to get outdoors with the RX1R II and see what it can do. All buttons are customizable and there is a customizable function menu. @miksto:poor optics... lol ;-))The RX1R and RX1RII festure the same lens which is class leading, stunning and ultra-sharp even wide open and has very nice contrast and bokeh. But the autofocus system in the RX1R II isn't slow by any means. Are you that poor a photographer that you have to reference DXO for everything (well you did buy a camera with a grip you hate) or can you not tell the difference in quality on your own? It is soft at F2.0 and needs to be stopped down to F4.0 to achieve similar sharpness as the RX1RII at F2.0. It's not about being inflexible.It's about choosing the right tool for the job.If you took a pole today of cameras used by serious, published, street photographers, I don't think you'll find the RX1r II very high on the list. RX1RII has electronic image stabilization for videos only. That's the magic of a free market. If you expect to do a lot of manual focusing, you'll probably have to look to Leica. 2) I pair up my a7r with the lovely Zeiss Biogon ZM 35mm f2.0 ( great on the M240) and at smaller apertures, say 11 or 13, there is an almost lenticular vignetting effect mid image, I will run out an example and send a link to illustrate this later. I fix them and resell them, they are almost always defective, they were all unreliable. No IBIS, exorbitant pricing and lack of updating the 35/2 to something even marginally faster headline my disinterest. You cannot zone focus it, but pre-focus to a known distance will work. So many things said and you still don't admit that's just about your peculiar (and unflexible) style of doing the thing... not representing street photography in general.Of course electronic shutter has the sensor readout time (which creates the "distortion" you're talking about). None! The back screen is too soft and scratches far too easily. Wow, I need to look at the menus again :-). Ten eerste is de beeldkwaliteit met een grote sensor veel hoger. ..Continued.DXO has not tested RX1R II lens yet but it has tested RX1R lens: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1R II Review. A camera designed to check all the right boxes with little regard for the photographer's needs and wants. Find out which cameras and lenses topped the list! (apparently many people here only understand things if we explain in the most literal way).I'm not even that experienced and I can still shoot many kinds of photographs with DSLR, mirrorless, compacts, phones, film, pinhole..But now it's clear that you're unable to adapt your style. If you're not, you're also in luck. I might yet buy one. Autofocus is dependable in good light. Everything has improved. The Leica Q is the better street camera of the two, but to be honest, for $500, the Ricoh GR knocks the spots of both of them :). Hopefully they have sealed the lens really good. ", "The new RX1R II achieved an excellent DxOMark score of 97 points, with individual scores of 25.8 bits for color sensitivity, a wide 13.9 EVs dynamic range at base ISO (albeit slightly lower at base than the best tested), and a very good low-light ISO score of 3204 ISO." Does this camera have any image stabilization? New or older version. This means that when focusing, the entire lens appears to be driven back and forth, in contrast to most ILC lenses, where a single or smaller group of elements handles focusing duties. Thus, my experience with the a7r is not all it it pertains to be, forewarned is forearmed. I'd rather have the Q, because it has real manual focussing with the ability to zone focus and because of this, it is a better street camera. I was surprised as anyone when I found that. Absolutely. In this buying guide we’ve rounded up all the current interchangeable lens cameras costing over $2500 and recommended the best. But having just a 35mm lens is a bit restrictive for landscape use. The RX1R II's sensor, being shared with the Sony a7R II, is a known quantity. The Sony Cyber-shot RX1R began shipping in the U.S. market in July 2013, ... Nikon Z7 II First Shots Canon 1DX Mark III Preview Top Sony Cameras. You have no clue how to use the camera. It should have been 20 megapixels sensor with the same sensor technology as in A7R II. OK, so they have the best quality image sensors. this is the Eleonor Rigby-camera: "Who is it fo-or...", They might as well have made it perfect.Why is Sony so bad with user interfaces, whether a phone, a camera or a TV?Are they targeting engineers with their products? Touchscreens are good maybe for video focusing - and some menu navigation, image previewing. Does every camera have to be criticised for not having a touch-screen now? There are a lot of photo/video cameras that have found a role as B-cameras on professional productions or A-camera for amateur and independent productions. I would kill for an X100F with a lens like that on the Leica Q - mechanical focusing ring with distance and depth of field markers, with a stop at “A” to engage autofocus. I don't find the lens + body pricing argument relevant because the focal length is fixed at something that is way too limiting for me. You'll save a lot of money, by the way. For example I find the IQ of cell phones unacceptable but my RX100 is acceptable. Image cropped to taste. And if that weren't an option, I'd be looking at Fuji. That lens was only resolving 20 megapixels which is within my guessed range of 15-20 megapixel optical resolution. In good light, the pixel level resolution of a DNG from a 16MP LG G4 is just as good as the 20MP output from a RX100. Why can't Sony design a camera that is simple to use? No noise at all. Photo by Barney Britton; ISO 125, 1/125 sec, F8, Photo by Barney Britton; ISO 100, 1/2000 sec, F2, The combination of accurate autofocus, a tilting screen and a leaf shutter make the RX1R II an excellent choice for low-profile shooting. Sunset was officially pretty close and guess what? How to Photograph Snowflakes – Snowflake photography with Don Komarechka, DPReview TV's 2021 Camera Industry Predictions, Here's what it's like to use Adobe Lightroom Mobile on the Zeiss ZX1. Not for everyone but I'm glad I exist in a mad universe where things like this can happen. :-). "Nicely played 8^). Clearly overpriced, yes? More sharp keepers than I ever would have expected. Dylthedog, do you seriously believe that optical resolution will improve with non-flat scene? Is it a perfect camera. The 24mm F2.8 1.33x anamorphic lens is now being crowdfunded on IndieGoGo, where it's already surpassed its funding goal. As far back as glass plates or sheet film, there's always been a market for high-end, fixed-lens compact cameras. Precisely how long, of course, depends on the shooting settings you’re using, but it feels like it needs a bigger battery. Combined with the sharp 35mm F2 lens, the RX1R II is capable of absolutely excellent images. The point being that Sony do not consider the shutter on the a7R to be good enough to give it a year's warranty, which you'd normally expect. Fujifilm's latest X-S10 is a likeable mirrorless camera with some of the company's best tech packed inside, and it doesn't cost the earth. I have a 35mm lens that I rarely use. The RX1-series cameras have terrible manual focus controls. But for others, they are deal breakers. It has hard stops, a limited turn radius, a finger tab to approximate a focus distance setting without so much as glancing at the camera or lens, and responds so quickly to user input that you'd swear it was mechanical. I've seen little evidence of this. Bend your knees and make like a human gimbal. Agreed. As we press on with our full review, we've analyzed just how the Zeiss ZX1 stacks up in front of our standard studio test scene. and you still replied the same way I wastrying to avoid. I bought my RX100 in 2012 and eventually gave up on ever getting any firmware updates. Chromatic aberration is awful 13 micrometers. But its real issues are: fragility, too small size and battery. It inherits the same basic body shape and ZEISS 35mm F2 lens as its predecessors, the RX1 and RX1R, but almost everything beneath the surface has been changed or revamped. Real-world testing has shown that lens sharpness is good to excellent across the frame, even wide open, and field curvature is rarely a major issue in everyday use. >> Are you that poor a photographer that you have to reference DXO for everything. The resolution was shocking. If you truly needed and wanted full-frame image quality (or something approaching it) in a compact form factor and liked a fixed lens, then there it was. With simple lossless (not lossy) compression. Many photographers love fixed prime lens shooting, and, a camera of this kind forces you to familiarise yourself with the aspect ratio/ field of view of the lens. Great. 2) the reviews I have read tell that the sensor and the lens are a match made in Heaven. I had the chance to try out the Sony RX1R II last week while I was in New York. If you want to take pictures of wallpaper, it's not the camera for you. Isn't smartphone image quality 90% as good as an RX100's by the same token? and in 1st image there are some chromatic aberrations around the window frames.this is normal for a camera like that? But their refusal to even try, in the face of loud and unanimous criticism, is inexcusable. I hate this kind of sensor, they always look dull, really dull, no sparkle at all, why is that? Give me the 12mp sensor in the A7s or the new 20mp BSI sensor Nikon is putting in their D5 (assuming it's sourced from Sony???) And the downsides are less tolerance for camera shake (the original was great for very steady shooting but also good for a more run and gun kind of street shooting that I do a lot of - 42mp is less forgiving for the latter), the heavy overhead for storage space and processing the raw files, and I gotta think all of that resolution and the processing needed to harness it has something to do with the even worse battery life than the original. Ahead of this year's virtual CES, Dell has announced new additions to its UltraSharp family of monitors, including a 40" curved 5K monitor. It's useless as a street camera.I tried one yesterday and the AF is too slow and sluggish and then there's the extreme high resolution that is none too forgiving of bad technique. Only you and your style turns that into a problem. Do you hate Canon because their sensors are always behind Sony's? Our team at DPReview TV just wrapped up its review of the Nikon Z7 II. Researchers at the University of Arizona have used NASA's HiRISE camera, which is onboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, to capture high-resolution images of the Valles Marineris canyon on Mars. Your "hate" Nikon for their poor live view implementation? There is nothing wrong with his camera. Sure, it gives you the option to control myriad functions and settings, but doing so is so unintuitive and inefficient that I suspect most RX1R II owners rarely take advantage of all that control.
