The RX1 cannot quite do portraits? I beg to differ. The classic focal length for portraits is 75-85mm, but good portraits can be gotten at almost any focal length.

Even though that's a fine enough shot, and the guy seems like a friendly person, the bookcase in the background, I'd say it shows exactly what I'm talking about.

It's an environmental portrait, for which the 35mm FL can work beautifully. Most of my portraits are environmental. For the most part, I find head shots to be boring. At any rate, it's all a matter of knowing how to use the lens at your disposal. Here's another RX1 portrait from a bit closer. And just as a reminder, I am on record as stating that I would be very interested in an RX1 with a 75-85mm lens.

This is a great shot, Rob.
