  • Replied in RX1R used?
    +1 RX1R with the EVF for under $2k US is a good deal IF it's clean and low mileage with the box and accessories. I don't think there will be any firmware updates. An RX2 is probably months, if not ...
  • I think you got a bad copy. I have the Rokinon branded 12/2 and it is very sharp - even at f/2. I did extensive testing between the Fuji XF 14 and Rokinon 12. The 12 was just as sharp, and ...
  • I am also a devoted Fuji X fan and have no desire to switch. Like you, I have considered purchasing the RX1 as a Full Frame "compliment" to my Fuji kit a number of times, but I was always put off ...
  • I love my X-E2 and primes. The best kit I have ever owned and used. After recently picking up an RX1R, I also wandered into the "maybe an A7ii is the ticket" conundrum. After much thought and ...
  • +1 to Tirpitz666 comments. I have an X-E2 + XF primes, which I love. I have also owned and loved an original X100 and X100S. The X100T is one generation better, and is more camera than most of us ...
  • Replied in Sony RX1
    Ha ha! +1 here. I planned to get a RX1, but found an unbelievable deal on an R, and I couldn't be happier. I think the "je ne sais quoi" is due to the amazing detail and micro-detail, combined with ...
  • Replied in RX1/R focusing
    Get the EVF, which "flips up". Even though I don't love the look of the EVF sitting on top of the sleek RX1 body, it is truly a joy to use. Changes the whole game. You can get them used, in like ...
  • It looks as if the camera focused on the man clapping in the audience (from what I can tell by the small original image). Did you have single point AF on, or Multi point?
  • The only point that's really worth taking issue with is the Bokeh comment. First of all, the 56/1.2, 35/1.4 and 23/1.4 all have VERY nice Bokeh. Secondly, it's pretty well-known that it ...
  • A little cluster of sprouting garlic sitting on a rusty piece of metal sculpture in front of a south-facing window. RX1R @f/2. Lightly processed in LR CC and cropped square. The combination of ...
  • Replied in Cure GAS now!
    All good, thoughtful insights. My only comment is that I SOLD my Sony RX100 M3 to help fund the RX1R. While the IQ of the RX100 is great, and the EVF makes it the leader of the pants-pocketable ...
  • Replied in Used RX1R
    I had a Canon 5D II with a bevy of L lenses for a few years, so I know what FF goodness is! I ditched all that heavy stuff when M43rds arrived, but eventually answered the Fuji X100 "Siren Song" a ...
  • Replied in Used RX1R
    Just to wrap up, I received my "used" RX1R Friday afternoon. A lucky eBay purchase for $1,700 with a Sony/Zeiss UV, Sony LCD protector, Sony external battery charger and extra battery, all in ...
  • Replied in Used RX1R
    That's an AMAZING deal. $1,450 would be great even without the EVF. If I had seen this before purchasing mine, I'd probably go for it myself! I think the prices will drop once the RX1-X is ...
  • Replied in Used RX1R
    Yeah. I saw there were 2 R's yesterday. I thought maybe YOU bought the 2nd one! LOL I didn't look at the R, but if it's a "9" to the "8+" of the one I saw, I'd say it's probably very clean, and ...
  • Replied in Used RX1R
    FWIW, I was in B&H today, and looked at the 2 used RX1's they have in stock. They have an RX1 (8+) and an RX1R (9). I took a careful look at the RX1. It was in pretty good shape. No overt marks or ...
  • If you like them, then that's ALL that matters but, to me, they don't look "vintage" at all. They look like out of focus shots taken with a lens that was fogged up with condensation. :/
  • Replied in AF-speed X-A1
    The X-A1 has only Contrast Detect AF, which is slower than the newer X bodies which have Phase Detect AF (as well as Contrast Detect). It really only makes a difference in very low light, or if ...
  • I'm with the other 2 posts. no more play than other lenses and, while the focus ring is a bit stiff, I LIKE it that way. I am using it for cityscapes. I set it to f/5.6 and put the focus ring ...
