Should the new Sony FF E-mount forum include RX1?
Jun 24, 2014

DPR Administrator Simon has stated to our Mod. Marti, that this forum will be split up. He also mentioned his interest in the question about RX1 F.F. fixed-lens cameras being moved over to the new full-frame partition which will already contain all of the Sony A7 models.

I agree, both the A7-models and the RX1 probably attracts much the same people as well, so it would be a logical place to discuss that camera, even though it's fixed-lens.

It makes no sense to group the RX1 in with the small sensor pocket cameras. The RX1 is a pro level camera with IQ at least as good as the rest of the FF range. It belongs with those cameras where it will be appropriately compared/discussed.

No, it isn't an E-mount camera. If the forums are broken out by mount and sensor size then the RX1 should be included in either the Cyber-shot forum or it's own "Sony FF Fixed Lens Mount" forum for consistency.

It's not a clean solution, but it makes more sense for RX1 to be in the FF mirrorless forum than with the compacts and superzooms.

A lot of the RX1 design made it into the A7, for better or for worse, and it almost certainly has a more "alike" sort of user to A7 users than to compact shooters.

Yep. I'd love seeing the RX1 topics mixed in with the A7 full frame stuff I enjoy.

The RX-1 is already in the Cyber-hot forum, but I remember being active to get that new camera into the NEX forum way back then. It didn't happen.

Do you suppose the Cyber-shot forum will happily relinquish the RX-1, now that they've had it for 2 years?

Hi Marti, if you're reading this, please tell Simon that after a discussion, we are mostly agreed that the RX1 FF fixed-lens camera most properly belongs with it's soulmates the A7 FF ILC cameras in the new forum.

Thank you for your kind attention,

Steve

No! It is a Cyber-shot as stated by Sony. It really has its forum already, since the bulk of the post in the Cyber-shot talk forum seem to be about it. I say no as it isn't e-mount or Alpha/NEX.

Wouldn't that be Battle Royale if they tried to take the RX1 away from the Cybershot forum? LOL.

"Sony Full Frame Mirrorless" certainly would include even Cybershot if it's full frame (e.g., the RX1).

Call the new forum Full Frame mirrorless and it makes sense. Call it Full Frame e-mount and no having the RX-1 in there breaks all the rules. They would have to make a Full Frame cyber shot forum just for those people.
