    wow, that’s great news. I’ve been waiting for a new sensor with better low light performance and a good reach ever since I sold my rx100 m3. The m6 came with the 200mm reach, but was lacking the low light performance and a decent selfie stick for over the crowd shots.

  • Odin

    That sensor’s specs are nuts, 50fps stacked sensor. If they use this we’ll see the price soar, easily be another $200 dearer.

  • Chris Joseph

    I was going buy the VI to upgrade from my III this year, but now I’ll wait for this one!

  • steven

    Pls add vari-angle screen

  • Stella

    Sony leading camera world right now…

  • SonyBEST

    Why not use IMX272? I can afford 2 times of current price.

    I absolutely love the new sensor, but I own an rx100 m4, so make it worth upgrading:

    1. add a proper battery (2x current capacity)
    2. add a proper grip out of the box. The camera cost already went up by 70% since the m3
    3. bring back the former apps as in-camera features. I want those bracketing, panorama and night photography/videos apps in-camera.
    4. ideally, add a removable lens option. I would love to buy separate equivalent of full frame 24-200 f/2.8-4.5 and a nice 85mm f/1.4

    PS: add a proper and long selfie stick with button and cabled (no WiFi/Bluetooth b/s wasting more battery):
    – snap photo button
    – trigger video button
    – zoom in/out buttons

    selfie sticks are for more than selfies. there are some amazing photos to be taken from higher up above the crowds

    Sounds good. I only hope Sony finally adds a mic jack this time! If they want to market this as the ultimate portable vlogging cam(which it could be) they have to put in a friggin mic jack! Also…I wish they would go back to the 24-70 lens. I’d rather have the 1.8 apeture & in camera ND filter than the longer zoom. Maybe Sony could offer two versions? One with the big zoom, and the other with the small apeture & ND filter. That’d be great.

  • Boo

    What a load of whoee!
