In favour of shooting with a fixed lens
In reply to halfmonkey, Jun 15, 2013

I had a full frame Sony a900 for a couple of years, and I used only a 50 mm lens on it.  It got so that I knew exactly where I needed to stand before I put the camera to my eye.

When you consider that a person shooting with a zoom lens needs to fiddle with the zoom after they get the camera to their eye, then it is definitely a speed benefit to use a fixed lens.

I think that after you have been using the RX1 for a while, you will know where to go to get the image you want, and you will be able to get it just as quickly as a DSLR user.
