By the look of the image, RX1 scream "compact size" with full frame sensor (same goes the shocking value of RX100). There is no zoom lens, no EVF for the sack of compact size. At the end can anyone put it in pocket? That's the measuring stick of compact size. If not, why not make it zoom lens? Much like 28-100mm offered in RX100 (fast at wide sow at tele), or even better make it 24-70/2.8 ??

On second thought since this RX1 has fixed 35mm lens maybe there will be an optical viewfinder mounted on hotshoe?

Obviously it's not for you, and at $3000 (supposedly) it's not for a lot of people. But why would you have even the slightest thought that this camera would fit in your pocket? It's a 35mm sensor. No chance of it being pocket sized. Also, just because it's described as the big brother to the RX100 does not guarantee that there will be no viewfinder.
