I own and use the RX1 and I too would really like to see AF improved; however, I haven't seen or owned any other compact camera that has better AF and equal or better image quality in a variety of lighting conditions.  I have owned the EM-5 that has really excellent AF but IQ is not a match.  This is the first camera I have owned, and I have owned many, that I am willing to shoot on auto ISO and know I will be pleased with the results up to 6400.  The combination of fine detail, high dynamic range, flare resistance and color depth means that mistakes in exposure or framing can easily be handled in PP with crops and adjustments to produce a pleasing high quality image.  I did spring for the EVF as it still helps with better framing in certain conditions.

There are two fixes I would like to see: 1) Fix the AF and 2) let me set minimum shutter speed in auto ISO.  Unless Sony addresses these issues I fear that sales will diminish substantially, especially if the Fuji X100S actually delivers on their promises.  I owned the X100 and loved it except for AF/MF and it appears that they may finally be addressing those issues.
