JurijTurnsek: Lets use this oppurtunity to let the product planning team that we want new APS-C lenses!
Chicken or the egg? How can you gauge the need for new (better) lenses by how many lenses are bought by the exsisting users, who simply won't buy lesser spec'd lenses and keep their primary DSLR system and treat mirrorless as a travel camera.
For example, John Smith might not abandon his Canon 60D with a 17-55 f2.8 for A6300, since he cannot get a native lens that he desires.
Lets use this oppurtunity to let the product planning team that we want new APS-C lenses!
Love the pull-out tilt and rotate screen - Sony should copy that.
Tim C.: Focusing on solely on APS-C and possibly medium format makes sense to me. Why choose to enter the 35mm market already dominated by Canon, Nikon, and Sony? It'd be an uphill battle.
APS-C remains the sweet spot for mirrorless (size vs. image quality). Hopefully, Sony won't forget that.
JurijTurnsek: Why bother producing the non-VR version? Does this mean that low range Dx bodies will get the lesser kit lens and the mid rangers will get the VR version?
VR is must for anyone doing video. Maybe someone newbie will create a myth that the non-VR version is so much sharper ;)

KonstantinosK: Hmmm... I'd like to see some great sample images taken with this beast.

sibuzaru: I'm curious to see how the Canon version with a speedbooster would be like.
So, what is the point then? You introduce another piece of glass that degrades IQ and gain FF bokeh and FOV on APS-C crop. But you have a FF sensor with a lot more pixels that you paid big money for.
But with bokeh the same as F1.4 on FF?
The lens is fully utilized as is on a FF sensor, why would you use a speedbooster?
Without a live-view, this is indeed useless.
Examples look great. JPEGmini option would be a welcome addition to any camera.
rhurani: Sony san! for me please the same camera without EVF, without tilting of the LCD, without the filter, but with a built-in flash, a 24MP-only FF for 700$. Deal?
This would be caller the original RX1. Not you just need to wait a year for the used price to fall so low.
JurijTurnsek: Most comments read: "I would love it if I had the cash, but since I don't, this camera is rubbish."
A second generation proves that there is a market for such a camera. And you are aware of the alternatives - only the Leica Q. But there are many way to spend $3000 and no one is forcing you to spend it on a RX1RII if you don't want to. Maybe you should google how precise the manufacturing process for this camera is and maybe then you will understand the pricing.
Can anyone point me to the data that shows RX1/R as a flop? These two cameras have incredibly high re-sale value and will have it for the foreseeable future.

4 bodies and 5 lenses? Sounds familiar? ;)
Right now we have multi-shot noise reduction - could this thing do multiple simultaneous shots reduction using multiple sensors? This thing has potential and the form-factor (just add the phone bits) is perfect for the current generation.
A Lenovo Yoga type of a configuration seems the best solution - use the regular laptop mode to adjust all the sliders and input the text and then flip it to a tablet mode and do corrections with a stylus. But the Yoga line lacks pressure sensitivity for the stylus.
The best thing Samyang could do now is to add a chip with EXIF info and a switch for de-clicking the aperture like the Zeiss Loxia series.
And Sony has to release an APS-C IBIS body in the near future.
