Sony has just announced the third iteration of their popular RX100 lineup and the successor to the RX100 Mark II from last year – the RX100 Mark III.
The RX100 Mark III builds on the strengths of its predecessor and now includes a brighter 24-70mm f/1.8-2.8 lens and a 1.4M-dot OLED pop-up Tru-Finder EVF. However, to probably make room for the EVF, Sony removed the hot shoe feature that was introduced on the Mark II.
