Sony has introduced the latest addition to their acclaimed Cyber-shot RX compact camera line, the full-frame RX1R II. Joining the original RX1 and RX1R cameras, the new RX1R II delivers the highest picture quality of any Sony compact camera ever made. This can largely be attributed to the new camera’s high resolution 42.4 MP sensor paired with its large aperture, fixed focal length ZEISS Sonnar T 35mm F2 lens, which have been fine-tuned to optimize performance together.
Additionally, the new model features a 30% improvement in AF response speed compared to the original RX1 models and is equipped with the world’s first optical variable low pass filter that can be set to “off," “standard” or “high” based on user preference, with low pass filter bracketing available. The camera also has a convenient retractable XGA OLED viewfinder for eye-level shooting, which has been implemented with minimal change in overall body size from its predecessors.
The Sony RX1R II full-frame compact camera will be available in November for about $3,300 USD.
