Today, we’ll talk about the full frame compact cameras. If someone wants to buy a full frame compact camera, two cameras should be considered first: Sony RX1R II and Leica Q. The new Sony RX1R II ($3,298) achieved an excellent DxOMark score of 97 points, with individual scores of 25.8 bits for color sensitivity, and it becomes the new compact camera king in DxOMark database. The Leica Q ($4,250) won the EISA European Premium Compact Camera Award 2015-2016. With a full frame sensor and the Summilux 28 mm/f1.7 ASPH lens, the Leica Q is ideal for street, architecture and landscape photography. So, both the Sony RX1R II and Leica Q are great fixed lens full frame compact camera. But it seems that we’ll soon have another choice.
According to a report coming out of Canon Rumors, Canon is seriously working on a full frame compact camera with a fixed 35mm f/2L IS lens. This new Canon full frame compact camera will cost at least $3,000 and it is expected to arrive under its advance G series compact line. The CP+ is just one month away (runs from February 25 until February 28, 2016). Maybe Canon will announce the new full frame compact camera at CP+ 2016.
In addition, Canon will “surprise a lot of people” with one of their next mirrorless cameras. And the announcement date is rumored for CP+ 2016.
The Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II compact camera is currently on sale ($100 off) at Amazon for $699.
