RX1 Price
Nov 28, 2012

You would have to buy a Canon 5DII for $1800 while they last, or a Canon 6D for $2100, and the new Canon 35/2 for $850 to match the performance of the RX1. And then you have a bulky, conspicuous camera that you can't fit into *any* pocket. The RX1 will at least slip into a large coat pocket, and can be used more discretely.  In that sense it could be the best reportage camera in existence.

Still though, I agree that if I were actually about to plunk down my credit card on a camera like this, I would probably wait for the Fuji XE-1 and a 23/1.4 just for the option of changing lenses. Or I would wait for the Fuji X200. I think you have to really crave FF to go for this Sony. But I do admire the camera and Sony for having the guts.
