Df with 50 1.8 is definitely different than RX1. Different focal length, shallower DOF, lesser quality lens, etc.

I prefer a Nikon setup for the AF, speed, ergonomics, optical VF, lens selection.

I have kept the RX1 because I can't beat the IQ at 35mm, the leaf shutter is silent, and it's fun for street shooting discreetly with the EVF at the 90 degree position.

The RX1 to me is all about having great IQ in a tiny and silent package. It leaves a lot to be desired outside of those qualities.

All that being said I'm not a fan of the Df. I don't like the AF system when compared to the higher end Nikon system, I don't like the ergonomics, and I don't care for the half retro half modern control scheme.

If you enjoy the RX1 and are not invested in Nikon, I would recommend taking a look at the Olympus OMD-EM1 and Fuji XT-1.
