RX1 - still a contender?
Jun 5, 2014

I am SERIOUSLY thinking about investing in an RX1. It's a major amount for me to spend on a camera, several leagues above any previous amount spent on any piece of kit.

Business has suddenly got better, and the feast after famine ideas come out again...

I was wondering if the experienced users are still as happy with it or would suggest an alternative either in hindsight or in light of other developments (A7 is only 1100 chf for the body now, for example).

For me there are a couple of aesthetic/ergonomic reasons I favour the RX1 and the major one which is the magical IQ.

The ergonomics include the form factor (so compact) and the "sleeper" aspect of it and also the leaf shutter.

Any pointers or advise as to whether I should pull the trigger or wait would be appreciated!
