The verdict is in. Mike tells you which of these cameras he bought, but he wouldn’t criticise you for making a different selection. It’s a very close call.
After extensive reviewing of both the Leica C-Lux and the Sony RX100 Mark VI, we are suffering from one-inch sensor overload here at Macfilos. The Sony, however, turns out to fully justify its “pocket” pretensions and crams a tremendous amount of power and sophistication into a package weighing just 50% more than an iPhone X.
Both the Sony RX100 VI and the Leica C-Lux are now in our hands. Which is going to be the best small-sensor compact with the maxi zoom?
Mike had a positive impression of the Techart Sony-Leica M autofocus adapter when he tried it for a couple of weeks. However, it was an older model, lacking the firmware necessary for full compatibility with the Sony a7III. He looks forward to trying the latest version…
Manual focus lenses, electronic viewfinders: How does the Leica M10’s Visoflex stack up against a modern in-camera EVF such as that in the Sony A7III? Not very well, as Mike finds out.
Choosing between the Sony RX100 VI and the Leica C-Lux doesn’t get any easier. But these videos by Chris Niccolls and Jordan Drake go a long way to helping you make up your mind.
The excellent Sony RX100 series has one problem — the maximum 70mm zoom. All that changes with the new RX100 VI which zooms to 200mm albeit at the expense of a slightly slower shutter. But a four-stop IBS system helps compensate. The only snag? The £1,150 price tag.
