I have both lens and with the D800E, the bokeh is indeed harsh versus the RX1. The color too, while yes, (the Nikon can be corrected in photoshop), is superior and more naturally pleasing for those with the Zeiss. Appears the Pop Photo Magazine review of the RX1 is finally up. Resolution is indeed higher than the A99, from ISO100 to ISO6400. Noise wise, the Canon and Nikon DSLRs are still kings and Queens. Of course, as the writer of this blog said, if you have the money, the RX1 is hard to pass up. Great tool in the bag.
