Apparently, The RX1 doesn't exist
Dec 1, 2012

I must be a real idiot..,

I just walked into a Sony Style store and asked if they have the RX1 in yet. The salesman paused, thought for a second, then replied "The RX100...?".

I clarified, RX1. He corrected me; "It's the RX 100." As he reached for the rx100.

I insisted; "No, the RX1...full frame...35mm..about $3,000...".

He responded by explaining that full frame and 35mm are the same thing, and that the RX100 not full frame. I explained that the RX1 is indeed a different camera, and I guess they don't have it yet.

He explained that no such camera exists. It's called the rx100, and they do have it. There's no full frame Cybershot; only the old Alpha.

I used to be the assistant manager at one of these same stores years ago. I would have written-up any employee so utterly clueless.

If there's typos, you can be sure I used my iPhone.
