Just how Sony pulled off this photographers dream is beyond our area of expertise, but the fact that their designers were able to squeeze a much bigger sensor into the camera so compact is something we’re clearly happy to run with. Right off the top, the specs are impressive: a wider, faster 24-70mm F1.8-2.8 lens, a 20.9 megapixel CMOS 1″-type sensor, and a built-in, fully articulating (180 degrees) electronic viewfinder. The body around these important ingredients, however, is where the bigger changes occurred, namely reducing it to be only a little bit bigger than the Canon S-series much-loved by compact enthusiasts. Its lens does get wider, going to 24mm instead of the previous 28mm limit, which interacts with a BIONZ X image processor, but we’ll have to deal with a telephoto lens that tops out at 70mm instead of the usual 100mm. Continue after the jump to see just how Sony packed all this technology into one small frame and look for the RX100III to release this June for $799.99 USD.
