RX10M2 is still a pretty decent camera too, hasn't come down too much in price, M3's are showing up around the $1K point...

Looks like they added a touchscreen for the first time in the RX cameras, and the upgraded AF system tweaked a little further over the RX100M5, other than that, if you don't need the focus speed/tracking or touchscreen (or the 600mm lens), the earlier versions still are pretty "state of the art", the incremental innovations are not "that" exciting, IMO...

I'm still waiting for 4k/60p, but the RX's still produce some amazing results for the price if you know how to operate 'em.

Have they finally removed the 29 minute recording limit?

I'm betting the app hack won't work on the IV like it does on all the other RX's.

Unless they change the underlying "OS", which is unlikely given the evolutionary vs. revolutionary nature of the camera, the hack will more likely than not work, if the 29 minute clip limit is still there. The hack works on the RX100M5, which is just an earlier iteration of this sensor/chipset in a smaller package.

It's also likely that the hack could be modified should it be needed, hackers are resourceful like that.

Blame us in Europe for the 29 minute stop. It becomes a video camera after 29 minutes and subject to some sort of TAX.

Watched a review where the 29 minute clip limit was mentioned, so it's probably still there (bleah), but the odds are good that the hack will either work fine, or can be modified to work, IMO.

Otherwise, from the review, I likes what I sees... and I see a lot of Mk3's hitting ebay cheap, if you don't need the spiffy new features.

I've been using a RX100 series (1-5!) for a while, and it's been great, as well as the RX10 series - they do what they do, and they do it well, this looks like a good extension of the line, I just hope there will be a firmware upgrade to allow 4K/60p!
