In a similar vein to the K-3 II, the K-70 also operates responsively in cold weather at temperatures down to -10°C (14°F).

DXO-Mark-lowlight-score-ima

Yes I am really disappointed to see the score card of Sony RX10 III camera, However I am Sony RX100 series camera lover and While writing this post I also charging my RX100 IV camera with USB charger.

OLD is GOLD – Sony RX10 III scored 472 ISO low-light score on the other side Sony RX10 II score is 531 ISO. The difference is not so big but why negative? Customer is paying $300 extra for an upgraded version of a camera and they are not getting what they should.
