Sony’s RX100 line is becoming somewhat legendary and the new RX100 VI looks to be more of the same. Sony continues to push boundaries with the RX100 VI, adding a 24-200mm f/2.8-4.5 zoom lens on the still-pocketable camera – all the while keeping its signature 20.1MP 1″ image sensor.

The RX100 VI’s sensor is a stacked Exmore RS CMOS with DRAM chip and an upgraded BIONZ X processor with a front-end LSI – providing faster processing and better image quality.
