As well as being compared against other pro digicams, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V is also often compared to boutiques, mirrorless, pro DSLRs, travel zooms, super zooms and entry-level DSLRs. The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V's top rivals come from Sony (such as the Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV and the Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III) and Panasonic (such as the Lumix DMC-LX100 and the Lumix DMC-LX10 (Lumix DMC-LX15))

compared toPro digicam competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V compared to other pro digicam competitors include: it shoots faster continuously (24 fps vs 8 fps), focuses automatically (phase detection vs contrast detection), has much more focus points (315 vs 31), is newer (october 2016 vs may 2014) and has higher quality type of viewfinder (digital vs none).

However, on average it doesn't have a touch screen, lacks and external mic jack, has a slightly shorter battery life (220 shots vs 280 shots), is slightly more expensive ($998.00 vs $679.00) and doesn't support an external flash.
