Just posted: Our first #Sony #RX10II Field Test is here. Find out how it did in the real world!
    The Sony RX10 II has some mighty big shoes to fill. Following in the footsteps of the original RX10 -- the camera which single-handedly created the large-sensor, long-zoom category, and which took the Best Enthusiast Zoom prize…

Story
Introduction

Mike Tomkins caught the photography bug early, when he received a Kodak Ektra 200 camera as a childhood birthday present. Growing up as an expat kid in Hong Kong, there was no shortage of interesting subjects, and he quickly outgrew the limitations of a basic 110 camera. A passion for TTL viewfinders was ignited when he stepped up to his first SLR, a Praktica BX20.

An early proponent of digital photography, he nonetheless wasn't willing to sacrifice a proper viewfinder in the quest to move on from film. A network engineer living in the United Kingdom at the time, Mike settled on the first camera that truly fit the bill: Sony's legendary Cyber-shot Pro. Not only did that camera launch him into the world of digital photography, but it also turned out to be the start of a new career. Back-and-forth correspondence with Imaging Resource publisher Dave Etchells to pool info on the Sony quickly turned into a job offer, and Mike joined the Imaging Resource team as News Editor and camera reviewer in January 1999.

Now settled in Knoxville, Tennessee, Mike and his family are blessed to be but a stone's throw from a million photo opportunities in the picturesque Smoky Mountains.
