Pros: Compact, bright, optical quality, silent, stabilized well

Cons: Slow, little sense, little battery, in M mode too difficult

Opinion: Taken to replace the reflex (only in quiet and improvised turns) of pro has few things due to technology (obviously that in 2015 could not hurt it) so the quality is great, the lenses amche and the filter nd is really a genius... But I regret having taken it as it is very slow compared to a reflex, the optical quality does not even seem zeiss the battery lasts really little (I have an a99 and it seems to last twice) but the cge thing I do not like at all and that I think will force me to sell it is the M mode , where to adjust iso, f and speed, it really takes too long and often gets messed up... It is made to be used a lot in automatic but already several times I have taken photos of landscapes identical to the mobile phone. Let's just say I didn't get the spark with this camera.

Pros: Beautiful, sharp and bright optics, AF (precise), pocket, EVF, workable RAW (in good light), stabilization (tested up to 0.4" freehand), integrated ND filter

Cons: Ergonomics, General Slowness, AF-C not for extreme situations, slow burst, ISO 3200 usability limit

Opinion: A beautiful machine aesthetically, the best in my opinion as Q/P among many of the RX100 series. Ergonomically it's not the best, but it's forgiven when you put it in your jacket pocket. However, with a few euro hand grip, the situation definitely improves. In good light conditions, the results are like an APS-C (the difference is there but it is not so abysmal). In the evening with the rise of the ISO things change but the stabilization is exceptional (I managed to shoot at 0.4" freehand with breath and all the precautions of the case). The AF is accurate even if in AF-C suffers if there are errant subjects from one side of the frame to the other. However I was surprised because it is still usable. At this point I connect to the gust question that is decidedly slow. The EVF will not be very large.... But there's... and I find it useful when I want to concentrate or in unfavorable sun. Another thing, it's a "slow" machine. I don't know how to explain.... you don't have to go in a hurry and it's definitely not very suitable for "action" photos (doing the proportion with my GR2 you can say GR2:Ferrari-RX100mk3:Panda). What to say, if you get the chance take it because it has its :). Ps. I find myself great with the menu in spite of so many negative opinions on the sony menu.

Pros: Size and weight, good image quality for a compact, fun to use.

Cons: Delicate, not really cheap.

Opinion: Tried for reasons of clutter/portability and I must say that you are comfortable, it seems to use a miniature reflex. It has it all: retractable electronic sight, flash, tilting monitor, raw snaps and has the ability to customize some buttons. Few problems with the Sony menu, it stores quite quickly and anyway you have the Fn button (quick menu) that brings back to the main functions of shooting, af, iso, type exposure, filter nd etc... . Very nice Scene Mode (if you don't feel like shooting in A, S or M) and in general the colors are not bad. It is a compact, not aps-c or FF, useless image quality comparisons. The body looks sturdy but the attached accessories not much: monitors, sights and flashes when extracted if they take shots are at risk of breaking, useful at least rigid case and screen protection film. Among all the versions, better in my opinion choose the iii for the brightest lens and value for "good" price (400 and broken euros are not few but can go, more than 1000 euros for the mark vii is impossible!). Just for the price Sony could include in the package some extra that would be comfortable (example the grip).

Pros: Small, portability, lens zeiss, diaphragm opening, everything!

Cons: nothing relevant!

Opinion: It is a compact and must be evaluated as such! as compact it is exceptional, fast, responsive never misses a photo, then with the zeiss 24-70 f1.8-f2.8 the light never lacks... For me living in a forest where light is a rare commodity this rx100m3 is a godsend! I read everything on the menu of this sony , I do not find it so complex in 15 minutes you juggle nice, of course to get to know it well it takes a time because it is very complete but around you can move with a certain sufficiency , it's still a premium compact! The quality of the materials is high although it is the idea of being very fragile. The retractable scope is a cool design and behaves very well in practice, the software provided is not bad then if one wants to download Capture one express for Sony and solves everything. It costs but it's a premium compact and given the eta is located at reasonable prices, worth every penny. I'm in love with this little gem.

Pros: 1) Tiny 2) photos always come well (never goes wrong) 3) materials and build quality 4) video compartment with numerous combinations of sizes and quality 5) battery with good autonomy 6) HDR and filter ND excellent 7) Fn key very practical

Cons: 1) makes photos from compact 2) full instruction booklet not immediately available (found after unspeakable searches) 3) few adjustments to customize the b&n 4) depth of field 5) definition, 6) editing software supplied, 7) price

Opinion: The premise: I am passionate non-professional but I still consider myself an artist in many fields. I express a personal opinion both here and in the list of pros and cons. I come from a Fujifilm XF1 (and I have a fully functioning Pentax K50). Unfortunately, I don't like this Sony: the project philosophy behind it is the opposite of what I was looking for. In my opinion the machine never goes wrong because it gives few possibilities for adjustment, so it gives "always perfect" but "impersonal" shots, in the sense that the machine, despite having many "empty boxes" available for personal styles, does not allow the user create your own "stylistic signature"; every "perfect photo" is only thanks to Sony and to me so also the desire to go out. I prefer to miss 70 shots out of 100 but go home with 30 good photos of which 3 memorable and all absolutely "mine", rather than going home with 100 "perfect" shots out of 100, of which not one I feel like "mine". PHOTOS: Pregi has some, although I take them for granted: it is built well and with good materials, although the almost smooth black painted aluminum design does not like it. The adjustable screen helps in certain shots and is built very well (I use it however with very cautious delicacy). The menu, as everyone says, is complicated but if you learn to set the menu in the 12-pane grid of the Fn key, life simplifies a lot. The aspect of the menu that has puzzled me the most are the apps: there are several as a gift, however, if you use an app, you exit completely from the "machine system" and, if you want to go back to using normal functions, you have to exit the app. There are 3 types of black and white: normal (adjustable), high contrast, rich shades. On the first you can only adjust contrast and sharpness, on the second nothing, on the third you can adjust something but since it only works with automatic multi-timer (type HDR) at the end it is as if you do not decide anything. It's not for me. The color is better because, although you can only adjust contrast, sharpness and saturation, in the end you give yourself many preset customizations. Excellent HDR and ND filter. It seems to me that the definition is significantly reduced by moving away from the wide-angle and increasing the iso, especially after 1600 - 2000, and that it is really difficult to get depth of field and bokeh effect. Editing software supplied (very few jpeg features) not comparable - for completeness and simplicity of use - to the Silkypix that I had supplied with Pentax and Fujifilm. The starting price indicated by Sony would have been unattainable for me; today this machine is located at half price in various sites (being out of production for several years) but in my opinion the price is still excessive, as only camera, bearable taking into account the video sector. VIDEO: The video sector is very good. The XAVCS 50p 50 modes with LCPM audio (unsampled linear - very good) and AVCHD 50p 28M give videos of a remarkable image compactness and quality and in general the video is operated by almost all positions of the dial (with the pre-set quality starting from the video location, it allows you to film in PSAM. Not all cameras and cameras allow these freedoms. Ultimately, In my opinion, he makes compact photos and video from cinema. It's a good car but I don't like it because it's hard for me to take art photos, not being able to adjust and customize the machine the way I want. I see with confidence that others have managed to get much nicer photos than mine ... we hope they can be obtained without pp software because I almost never use them. These are my personal impressions. Update: I finally sold it.
