Does anyone have a photo of the RX1 with the EVF attached ?

You will find some here:


Actually it looks rather similar to my NEX-5T with EVF attached... and I have no problems with an EVF which can be fitted to a body when necessary. A shame Sony didn't pick that design for the cheaper of the two FF cameras if they really couldn't 'stomach' a rangefinder shape (and external EVF's have angle adjustment which is useful)

As an aside, I strongly suspect that the NEX EVF (Sony FDA-EV1S) and the RX1 EVF (FDA-EV1MK) are basically the same product (specs are identical and the external mouldings look the same except for the colour), albeit with different mounts (NEX 'smart' connector vs. hotshoe - just different physical connections with no electronic differences). Compare and contrast:



However the NEX EVF is about half the price of the RX1 version and so a $10 'hotshoe-to-smart' adaptor by an enterprising Ebay vendor (there are plenty the other way around) which included video connections could sell rather well...
