A great set of street photos, Brandon. Thanks also for posting full size sample images.

How are you getting on with the autofocus now that you've had a little more experience with the RX1? I assume your hit rate is going up as you're adapting to the camera. Are you using the single AF point focus and recompose method?

Looking at the results, I'll guess it'll be difficult to go back to the OM-D.

Thanks! I still can't quite nail focus with AF most of the time in low light, and am still experimenting with a minimum shutter speed for night time for which i can keep pictures sharp.

I use single flexible AF point and adjust the focus point on the screen in anticipation. Focus recompose doesn't seem feasible for taking moving objects on the street, especially without lens or stabilization.

I have a much better hit rate with the OM-D because of its quick AF and high camera responsiveness probably around (75% vs 30%), but when I do nail a shot with the RX1 the IQ difference really shows. That's what driving me to practice more with the RX1 at the moment.
