Sony's RX100 series has not only been a favorite of casual shooters, but photo enthusiasts have become big fans of its image pocket-friendly performance and image quality. The new V model gets an improved AF system that boosts its speed to give it the fastest auto-focus on the market. It also has the highest number of auto-focus points with 315 points covering more than half of the frame.

That speed also gets you a ridiculously fast burst rate that is capable of snapping 24 fps at a full 20 megapixel resolution. The camera keeps its low-light friendly 24-70 mm F1.8 lens and you also get 4K video recording with reduced moire and jaggies. You also get the integrated EVF, built-in WiFi, built-in ND filter, and a flip-up screen.
