Very different interface from the M9 but I also have the RX 100 so I'm only really getting used to manual focus with focus peaking.  The RX1 is simply stunning in the files it produces.   The color and dynamic range are nothing short of fantastic.  I can't believe how little sharpening is required in pp.  Focus is very quick and accurate, particularly accurate with flexible spot.  The quality even at iso 6400 is mind boggling good.  The quality of the iso is so good that I just use auto iso and shoot everything else manually.  That's an entirely new dimension of shooting that I never would have dreamed of using until now as I have always manully selected even iso.  Lot's to learn and I can't wait to get the evf.  I  read everything on this camera that I could and was very attached to the M9 but the RX1 has surpassed all of my expectations.   A few niggles with the interface but for now all I can say is wow, wow and wow.

have you been banned from the leica user forum yet? the current pretense among a couple of members is that the zeiss on the rx1 appears to be better than it really is because it is optimized for the sensor. must mean you (and i) bought a pig in a poke and should just stick with our m9s - where the lenses really are good without the assistance of optimization!

enjoy. it's a great little camera - even if it is only an optimized zeiss on a sony body!:-D
