Here's an article posted at Steves-Digicams.com - looks like he had an opportunity to shoot the RX1 at the Sony media event earlier this month.

RX1 Image samples here.

Thank you.  A few observations (in spite of all OOC jpegs):

- 35/2 Sonnar has remarkable "correction" down to the corners; I have tried to check this in all samples I was able to see until now. I would not be surprised if it would perform better than the Summicron -or Biogon- 35/2.

- At small apertures of both: The kit lens on the Nex-6 at 24mm has better edge/corner rendition than the 24-70 Zeiss on the A99 at 24mm (night pictures). I wish Steves Digicams had chosen 16mm instead to have a more realistic comparison.

Let's be patient until we get some RAW samples. I have pre-ordered both the RX1 and Nex-6; hopefully would not cancel any of them.
