If Sony releases an RX1 with a fixed 75 or 85mm lens, I will think very hard about getting it.

i'm with you on the 85mm esp, but zeiss/sony will have to go some to produce something that fits the rx1 line. my zeiss 85/1.4 for pentax, for example, is just too bulky for me for a walk around. where leica has the advantage in lens production is the relative "smallness" of its lenses compared to the quality of what they deliver. well stevehuffphoto is promising something smashing coming from sony in the next few months and sonyalpharumors is saying a new variant from the rx1 line will be out in august, so fingers are crossed.

I think that an 85/1.4 would be too large for what the RX1 is supposed to be.  f2 or f2.8 would be more suitable.
