EU: Used Sony RX10 Mark IV for 1448 euro

Price aside, the Sony RX10 Mark IV mayhaps is the closest to a “do it all Paul” type of a camera with a 1″ sensor, a solid superzoom range with OIS, fast autofocus, 4K video, etc, etc, etc. But the price is quite high for this model. If you are tempted but you are fond of buying used, as of the time of writing, the German Amazon Warehouse Deals has it in USED condition for 1448 euro.

It is a small sensor but RAW is better than not having RAW for those who like to squeeze more out of their camera.

It is available for pre-ordering for $448 at Adorama and B&H Photo and Amazon itself with a early November 8 release estimate.

EU: Sony RX10 First Generation for 650 euro

The Sony RX10 Mark IV is the leader of the RX10 series but with a price that is not that far from 2000 (Euro or Dollars), one who loves the idea of the RX10* models but has a fiscally strict spouse-CFO may be interested in the original model, the first generation RX10, it is currently on sale in new condition for 650 euro by Amazon Germany itself with a maximum of two units per Amazon account at the sale price.
