Excerpt: Have been a pro photographer for 40+ years and used Hasselblad and Carl Zeiss lenses for many years; getting back to a Zeiss lens on this camera has been pure joy. I've been shooting digital for 14 years; this is by far the best digital camera I have ever used and really does challenge the Hasselblads I used when shooting film. Camera is easy to use, fairly easy to learn - compact enough to carry almost anywhere, yet the 200 mm reach of the lens makes very versatile.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD
Excerpt: I bought this camera for my wife for her travels as a replacement for her Canon powershot SH30. I was hesitant given price point (price has come down $ since I bought it but the informative reviews here on B&H helped me make my decision.) I am a very knowledgeable enthusiast and this camera is phenomenal. Nearly as good as my full frame DSLR in a much more convenient to carry package. Really versatile. Outstanding optics. Low Light is amazing.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, High Build Quality, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Excerpt: I increasingly use this camera for causal still photography rather than my D7100. The sensor and lens combine to produce outstanding image quality. I shoot primarily in raw aperture priority but have had excellent results with grab shots in the automatic mode. It's expensive but well worth the cost. I doubt that I will have to buy another compact camera.
Pros: Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
have gotten some very nice shots, but I need a lot of practice ...

Summary: I'm still on the learning curve...have gotten some very nice shots, but I need a lot of practice trying to remember all the functions and menus. The depth or quality of the colors seems a bit faded. Overall, it is an amazing camera. Lots of fun.
Excerpt: After been a Nikon man for over 40 years. Owning full frames Nikons I took a chance and ordered the Sony RX10. To make a long story short this will be my main camera from now own. Excellent is and understatement.
Excerpt: Great camera, fast at 2.8. Easy to learn, I shoot nikon but the switch to this was not hard. The only thing I wish it went to 300 not 200 for the zoom.The pics are clear. I bought this for a trip that requires less gear. I did not want to take my other camera and lens and wanted a camera that still would take good shots and that I had some room for adjustment.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution
Excerpt: A good deal. The case is all leather, old school. Great for traveling to protect the camera. Only thing is I wish it was 2 16 gig cards and not 1 32. I don't like to have so many pics on one card just in case something happens.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Battery Life, Great Resolution
