    Great if you shoot exclusively 35mm

    • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

    The RX1RII is great if you shoot exclusively at 35mm. Pros: +Literally pocketable (full frame in your pocket!) +42 megapixels (you can print around 24x36 prints) +Sonnar lens (sharp and crisp photos) +WiFi (remote shooting) +Discrete viewfinder +Smooth aperture ring Cons: -No in-body stabilization (it has electronic stabilization, but not the 5-axis IBIS like other Sony and Olympus cameras) -Autofocus is average (coming from an Olympus E-M5, this was disappointing, but not a deal breaker) -Battery life is poor (I have 6 batteries total) -The lens distortion is so bad, it makes the Earth look round (lol; this is correctable in Lightroom, but you lose quality by correcting it. The distortion isn’t as noticeable as Voigtlander M lenses, though.) -Has UHS-1 storage interface (to be fair, most cameras on the market have this, but they could have added CompactFlash or at least UHS-3. After all, this is a $3,000+ professional camera, right?) -Reviewing zoomed-in photos is slow (I don’t chimp or pixel peep, but on occasions, I’ve wanted to show friends photos I’ve taken of them, and it takes about 2 seconds to be able to zoom in. If you don’t zoom in, the photos load normally, though) Please remember, first and foremost, this is a CYBERSHOT camera. It’s a glorified point and shoot. It has the same sensor as the Sony A7RII with a fixed Carl Zeiss lens, which doesn’t deserve the Zeiss name because of the lens distortion. Overall, as someone who plans to travel for the next few years, this camera is perfect. 35mm is my favorite focal length. Zoom with your feet. However, this camera would be PERFECT if they added 5-axis sensor stabilization and improved the lens distortion. Third time’s the charm?

    Sony Cyber-shot RX1R II review: Full-frame fun and foibles
    When it first launched at the end of 2012, the Sony Cyber-shot RX1 was a camera like no other. Its full-frame sensor and fixed 35mm lens made it a distinctive shooter for the high-end market. Sure, it had its imperfections, but that large sensorFull Review
