When the Panasonic FZ-1000 was announced, it was obvious to everybody that Panasonic was going for the Sony RX20’s jugular… metaphorically speaking. It was cheaper, could shoot 4K and had a longer (albeit darker) lens.

Well, it seems Sony is ready to fight back, and soon, with a 4K-capable RX20.

The rumor broke over on Sony Alpha Rumors, who was told by an anonymous source that the RX20 would use the same 20.1MP sensor and 24-200mm f/2.8 lens as the RX10, but feature 4K video, 120fps capability at 720p and the ability to shoot the XAVC-S codec.

According to this source, the camera will be announced in mid-October for $1,300 USD — what the RX10 originally cost before the price dropped to $1,000 post-Panasonic FZ-1000 release — while the original RX10 will remain on the market after an additional $100-$200 price drop.

For now those are all the details available, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated as more news breaks.
