    Looks great:
    Hands-on with the Sony Cyber-shot RX100 V

    Video feats seems to be their focus here, will be a killer micro-Video machine this one.

    I guess price level will be out of my league :) but it would sure be nice. Was thinking of a mark IV, that could maybe become a little more affordable soon, but I doubt that.

    Should make the M3 an even better deal. Unless you're into major video and slow-mo, the M4 isn't much of a jump IMHO.

    I would have snap-purchased an M5 if, maddeningly like the A6500 that was announced along side it, it had a touchscreen for setting AF zones.

    Currently, there's about a $150 gap between each of the RX100 models. I can see that trend continuing but that would drop the original Mark I to something like $299. Would Sony let it go that cheaply - or finally discontinue it?

    Right now, the Mark V and Mark IV are the same price - but I think that's during the "pre-order" period only.

    All this said, I can't figure out why Sony left a touchscreen off the new camera. All of that autofocus performance and you can't smoothly pull focus by tapping a touchscreen while shooting video.
