Description

The Sony Cyber-shot RX1R is a high-end point-and-shoot camera featuring a 35mm full-frame sensor, a 35mm Carl Zeiss T* Sonnar lens with an f/2 aperture, and a removed low-pass filter. The RX1R captures 24.3-megapixel stills and 1080p video, has a 3-inch LCD with 1.23m-dot resolution, and a maximum sensitivity of ISO 25600.

Leica M moves from the line's previous CCD sensor to a CMOS sensor. It is Leica's first M series camera with video recording capabilities. It also marks a new naming standard for Leica. Rather than following Leica's M9 with M10, Leica will be naming all future iterations "M". In addition to Leica's M mount lenses, the camera also has support for Leica R mount lenses.
