Shame it's the mk1.

Original Poster

According to reviews the image quality of the MK2 is more or less the same as the MK1, but the MK1 has the advantage in being smaller and lighter: -
Significantly lighter
213 g vs 281 g
More than 20% lighter
Slightly smaller
101x58x35 mm vs 101x58x38 mm
Around 10% smaller
Slightly thinner
1.4" vs 1.5"
Around 10% thinner

No Sony Case or card so not quite the same deal, but good price none the less.

Is this mark 1 or mark 2??? What is the difference between all these versions and which one would you recommend?

I'm looking for a new camera, at around the £300 price range.
After alot of research I'm probably going to go for the Nikon D3200.
Any advice or recomendations on alternatives welcome?

It's a mk 1. The differences between v1 and v2 were more incremental- better low light performance, wifi connectivity and a tilting screen were the main highlights in terms of changed functionality. The newest mk 3 model made more significant changes, adding an electronic viewfinder, a lens with much better maximum apertures throughout the range (albeit at the expense of a more restricted range, slightly under 3 x zoom compared to slightly under 4x on the older models), a more tilty tilting screen And better video performance.




What are you looking for in a camera. What are your priorities in terms of features? The obvious competitors are the rival entry level DSLRs from companies like Canon and Pentax, For example the Canon 1200D and Pentax K50. Each have their own advantages and disadvantages, so have a read around and see which suits you best. Try and have a play with them in a camera store too if possible, handling and interface can have a big impact on which camera you like most. Other alternatives are the different mirrorless ecosystems like Sony's mounts and micro four thirds, or high grade compacts like the RX100 above.

any of the rx100 range are superb. for a compact camera I think these are the best according to my research. it's all about the sensor. I'm a canon pro DSLR user but I'll be getting one of these as my pocket camera. if you need to get a compact camera soon then either mark 1 or 2 are good options. If you are in no rush then wait for the mark 3 price to drop. if image quality is the most important consideration then this is a great camera. they have added bells and whistles in successive marks. yes there have been quality improvements too but I don't see anyone complaining about the image quality in any version of this camera.

Thanks very much everyone for your help.

FYI, I'm looking for camera that preferably:-

1. Is smaller than a DSLR
2. Can do a nice bokeh effect and DOF
3. Doesn't cost more than £300

The rx100 is a great camera, but it's very expensive... In fact for the price of the mark III version, you can buy an A6000 with interchangeable lenses. Now I know Olympus XZ-1 is a bit older, but I've read that it's almost the same in quality and features as the rx100 and can be bought for much cheaper. What do you think??

The ZX-1 is a good camera, better macro than the RX100 but not so good low light. Have you thought about The Panasonic LX7, it's quite a bit smaller that an DSLR (but larger than the RX100) and has a F1.4-2.3 lens, currently £250, with cash-back from Panasonic.

For intelligent & thorough insight; look no further than dpreview.com. Comparisons between all 3 RX100's can be found there
