Yesterday, a page out of an official Sony camera manual leaked revealing that the company is indeed working on an RX100 Mark III (previously referred to as the RX200), and now sonyalpharumors has gotten their hands on some further details thanks to a ‘trusted source.’

According to their source, the new camera will arrive on May 1st and will sport the exciting new 28-100mm (35mm equivalent) f/1.8-2.8 lens and a pop-up viewfinder. No further details are available at this time, but even if those are the only two improvements it will tempt many an RX100 Mark II user to upgrade.

Stay tuned for the rumored announcement and let us know what you think of these rumors in the comments down below!

    I’m really curious how this pop up viewfinder will work. Would it be an evf or ovf? how would the quality be as it’ll have to be compact. Or is it just a frame like the hasselblad sport viewfinder?

  • BigEnso

    If the image quality holds up to that of the Mark II, I’ll be on this like a duck on a Junebug. It would be great for those days where I don’t want to lug around my D800 or even my OM-D M-1.

  • Alain van Hille

    It will certainly join my Fujifilm XT1 but in my pocket when I do not want to carry the already lightweight Fuji.

    ¡Espero que con el lanzamiento del RX100M3 el modelo anterior baje su precio!

    Why are you commenting in Spanish on an English-language website?

    I don’t mean to be rude, but please make an effort to write in the language the website is in, as it shows respect.

    I doubt you would like it if someone commented in English on a Spanish website… just sayin’.

  • WhoCares

    Seems good. Better buy it to go alongside my [insert gear list] here.

  • Federico Avila

    ¿Qué?

  • ReinoldFZ .

    (I’m going to translate ManofArms’s post) Dice que por qué comentas en español en una página en inglés. Y luego que deberías hacer un esfuerzo para escribir en el lenguaje de la página por respeto. Si fuese al revés te molestaría.
    BTW, I agree, in my country is a way of disrespect to speak in a way that others cannot understand. That’s arrogant.
