In addition to the recently released Sony A7r II Sony also announced two additional cameras.

The Sony RX10 II is an upgrade from the RX10 that was a decent fixed-lens camera with 1080p video.  This 1-inch sensor camera now shoots 4K video and has advanced slow-motion frame rates that were never before seen at this price-point like 240FPS at 1080p.  The Carl Zeiss 24-200mm f/2.8 Lens is a nice touch too.  4K is at 30p or 24p.

The very portable Sony RX100 IV also shoots 4K but for only a maximum of 5 minutes.  It uses the same 1-inch sensor.
