Really like the almost-3D look of RX1 images
Mar 18, 2013

Even though I'm sometimes frustrated with this camera, when you nail focus, it can create beautiful images. Zeiss lenses are sometimes considered special because of the almost 3D appearance they can give to images. It's not about subject isolation (background blur), as any fast lens can achieve that, but more about sharpness and micro-contrast... though subject isolation helps too. The first image below--not so special in composition--almost jumped out at me on my monitor. Probably won't have the same effect downsized and posted here, but I'm giving it a try. I also love the dynamic range of this camera... seems to be noticeably better than my a900 in this aspect. I was amazed at how much detail I could recover in the background after getting the exposure right on the 'model'.

Thanks for looking....
