Sony RX100 VI Preview: Huge Fast Zoom Lens, 4K & Still Compact

Sony announces the new Sony RX100 VI, Sony RX100 6. This has been a long time coming but is it worth it? Clocking in at around $1,200 US and launching in July this should do pretty well. It's the "all you ever need" camera as Sony puts it. The biggest features wrap around to 4K video, 120 fps full HD shooting and includes S LOG3 and Hybrid Log. The new RX100 VI uses a 24-200mm zoom lens with an f/2.8-4.5 variable aperture. Its like having a 24-70 and 70-200 all in one pocketable camera. But there are two things missing, still a mic input and 60fps at 4K video. It's looking like Sony is sticking to 24/30 fps in this compact camera line. The other thing that isnt available now is the record time while shooting 4K. Is it still 10 mins? Stay tuned for any updates. That being said, is this the camera for you?
