RX1, what people don't seem to get...
Sep 10, 2012

I think the RX1 is a brilliant move by Sony. What people don't seem to understand is this is a trial product.

Just as Fuji built the X100, Sony has now built the RX1.

I fully expect Sony to learn what users like and don't like from this body and move it to the next mirrorless body.

If this camera is generally reviewed well for what it is, the next body, likely announced probably at Photokina next year will be a full frame mirrorless body with interchangeable lenses. This gives Sony time to work the kinks out of the form factor and get lenses developed.

If Sony is smart they will (as they have with the RX1) have external sources develop their lens set.

Sony appears incapable of developing lenses of any quality in house. (As a side note, they can build decent audio receivers, but can't build speakers that are any good either).
