Sony Cyber-shot RX100 III Will Be Available In Singapore From June 2014

· · · Camera

The much anticipated Sony Cyber-shot RX100 III will be available in Singapore from June 2014 for S$1,199. It is not really a successor to the popular Sony Cyber-shot RX100 II because the RX100 II will still be on sale targeting a different audience because of the cheaper, S$899, price point.

For the RX100 III, Sony updated the lens to ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* 24-70mm F1.8-2.8, added a retractable OLED Tru-Finder aka Electronic viewfinder (EVF) and changed the LCD so that it can be tilted 180° to take selfie photos.

Previously for the RX100 II, the Tru-Finder (EVF) is available as a separate accessory and that will set you back S$629, but for the RX III, Sony decided to build that in and just charge you S$300 extra!
