The R isn't an improvement, nor a curiosity. It's a different camera, for a different purpose. Sony marketed it wrongly, creating a lot of confusion in the process.

Horses for courses.

FWIW, I personally find the overall output from the RX1 more appealing for general purposes. It has a nice, creamy yet detailed rendition, whereas the RX1R isn't forgiving. DOF is also reduced with the RX1R, so it's even easier to get OOF shots at wide apertures. I chose the R because for *my needs* it was the right camera.
