Cameras are tools. The RX1 appears to be a very special tool, not appropriate for many photographers. For the serious street photographer who wants discretely to make photos that can be blown up to very large size, for example, this might be an essential tool.

If this camera is a success, it should allow photographers to make photographs in which the primary point of interest--often a person or two-- will be relatively close, and the remainder of the frame will be filled with stuff composed in relation to the primary point of interest. It is a challenging and interesting kind of photography. These photo opportunities tend to come and go very quickly. The eye that can see them and compose a complex frame quickly are rare.

Of course, there are many other possibilities, but a camera of this kind depends a lot more on being able to see that to fumble with a bunch of gear.

It will not replace the NEX7 or your favorite full-frame DSLR both of which are much more versatile tools.
