Variable optical low-pass filter

The most interesting technology in the RX1R II is the new variable OLPF, which allows you to choose the intensity of its diffusive effect to manage the trade-off between sharpness and moire.

Even with the addition of a viewfinder, the camera remains relatively small.

Top

Drive modes

The previous model was so slow it didn't even include a continuous-shooting option on the drive mode dial; now it's got one.

Viewfinder

Sliding the Finder switch pops up the viewfinder, which then automatically extends back. It doesn't seem to extend backwards as much as the version on the RX100 series.

The not-so-good

This tiny battery is just not up to the power drain of the sensor, OLPF unit, viewfinder and back display. And the SD card slot in the battery compartment is a little too consumer-design.
