Here is a classic example. I saw this lovely blue boat being prepared to launch.

I took a number of nice shots as it was making its way along the gentry. Unfortunately to my eye THE shot was this one; with the craft at the end.

The problem was that the only camera I had with me was the RX1 so in order to produce the image in mind I had to massively crop.

It's a nice image but if you look at it full-res you will see that the cripness is not there.

All in all it was a great day but I would not have minded having a telephoto at that particular point.

With fixed focal length you get some and you lose some...........

Note that all in all I really enjoy the RX1.
