    Fantastic camera, improved over the RX 10

    I had the Nex 6 and multiple lenses and loved my kit. However recently my beloved Nex 6 got damaged and I wanted to buy the a6000 to replace it. I happened to chance upon a copy of the RX 10 and fell in love with it. The build quality was awesome. The single zeiss lens from 24-200 at a constant f2.8 was superb. But I had problems with the slow autofocus and the electronic view finder was not as good as the one on my Nex 6. I returned the RX 10 within the 14 day return period to Best Buy and instead ordered the RX 10 M2. Thank you Best Buy for your return policy. I have since played with the M2 for about 10 days now. It meets all my requirements. I LOVE IT. The AF is much better and low light performance is excellent as well. I love the fact that I don't need to change lenses any more. While I have not tried the 4k video or slow motion as I am waiting for my upgraded memory card to come in the mail, the HD video is simply superb. I have taken the camera to an indoor tennis tournament and got wonderful stills and video. Potraits give great bokeh and the pictures are sharp across the zoom range. I have finally found the one camera to fit all my needs. Great job Sony. The 1 inch sensor is so far performing as good as my APSC Nex 6 with the Zeiss 16-70 f4 lens.

    I'll keep it short and sweet. This camera is producing some excellent images and the performance has been great for the caliber of this classification. Video is great also. I was thinking about the rx100iv but I think the extra lens range, longer 4k vid recording, ergonomics (even though a little big to be stealthy), bigger viewfinder, etc IS worth it. I actually shoot professionally with my DSLRS and multiple lenses but wanted a smaller camera for travel and really didn't want to sacrifice to much image quality. Of course it's not a full frame sensor but I'll tell you, it's lighter, has excellent lens range, great vid quality and photos are pretty great too all in one package. I'm still playing around with it but so far so good. Of course nothing is perfect honestly but I think most people will be happy with it.

    The best all-around everything-you-can-do CAMERA!

    I read other reviews before buying this Sony RX10 II camera and my decision was RIGHT ON! Like many of you, you have so many choices. One of my important criteria is sharpness in low light with and without flash. This camera does a near perfect job producing super sharp pictures indoor without flash. Once you lock in the aperture and set the ISO about right, the photos are amazing without flash!. And with flash, the pictures came out super sharp due to the F2.8 lens. It is true as someone indicated that this camera is your best all-around camera to carry anywhere with you. It has the big zoom with out the need to carry heavy long zoom lens and the size is just about right. As with any camera, nothing is perfect....I tried to find that "perfect" camera but nothing exists. So the weakness of this camera is the occasional inability to focus at the long range of zoom....it does take time to hunt. But that is minor to me.

    Cool tricks but not my main camera

    The picture has a very fine grain and the color is just icky without color grading. Most of the interface is also digital so getting used to the lack of buttons and focus took some time. The 4k and slo-mo are fun but not super practical in most cases. Compared to my 5D mark ii, Canon still has a much better picture with far superior color. It's great for a grab-and-go and it fills a lot of gaps so if you can justify the price, it's nice to have. I honestly wouldn't recommend it unless you need something that it uniquely offers. Also don't expect to publish anything without doing some color-grading.

    Phenomenal camera - beginner to pro!

    This is an incredible camera. Whether shooting stills, nighttime long exposures, nature photography, 4k video, or even slow-motion video, this camera can do it all. It has an excellent Zeiss lens that is sharp even at full zoom, and with having f2.8 max aperture over the full range makes for great shots. I took it on vacation and got incredible photo's and played with the slow-motion video and loved the results. I only wish the lens could have gone wider, like 16-200, instead of 24-200, but regardless it's a great camera.

    RX10ii Viable DSLR Replacement

    As an owner of an A7s, A6000 and a77ii, I can honestly say that I'm blown away by the performance of the RX10ii. The 28-200 is bright and versatile. The stabilization is top notch where I can hand hold sharp pictures at 1/20th of a second at the 200mm equivalent. As long as your photography is static you can pretty much shoot in any light! Lastly, this camera does not overheat shooting 4K for hours on end. Do yourself a favor and give this a try before you get sucked into the DSLR game. You may find yourself fully satisfied with a lot more money in your pocket!

    I have only been using my Sony RX10 II for a month, but I really am loving it! I had read a review in USA Today and then read multiple reviews on line before purchasing it, given the $1298 price. Because I wanted a camera for travel which could take wide-angle shots, close up shots, and video~this was a great option for me (even with my basic DSLR, I would need to purchase 2 + lenses). The pictures have been crisp and clear. I really want to try the video option soon!

    OK for Beginners

    Beginner

    I want to start getting into photography with this being my first camera with many controls. At first I thought that this was a great camera, has lots of settings, features and took decent pictures. After getting to know the camera and did some comparison pictures and videos, I was quickly let down. Pictures are quiet grainy. In video mode, audio is very noisy (hissy) and 4K video quality is weak. Possibly up converted from 1080. I got sharper images and 4K video with my cell phone.
