Love it! Nothing is hotter than a girl piloting a battle robot! :)
Nikon not only getting their sensors from Sony but also some design and form factor taken from the nex system.
Nikon will not save the 1 series with this release...
oh man! cant wait to get my hands on that baby!!!

Seriously who will buy this unless they want to get beaten by their fellow photographers in a photo walk.
It might fool the asian market but im so happy i havent seen them around China or Hong Kong.
Give-up or get bankrupt.
Hey, Luca Alessandrini!!! Do you even own a camera or held one?
The ugly truth...
Somebody left some kids at Hasselblad's R&D department. Or maybe IKEA and Hasselblad have trade their engineers. Well at least Pentax/Ricoh [K0-1] is happy They are not number 1 anymore in the ugliest camera in 21st century.
This year is overwhelming for me...
Joy :) and sadness :(
2013-14 is the year to get a decent/budget full frame. ill save -up for that.
Ace Disgrace: A lot of haters who complains about this breakthrough. its the fact that they admire it and want it so bad that they hate the price point because they know they will never have it. So they point out the bad things in order to make them feel better.
In reality a lot of the negative comments came from people who dont have the slightest idea about full frame, 35mm focal length and specially the magnificent leaf shutter.
Stick with your phone camera and instagram... oh wait lomography is laughing at you!
Ha! listen to the both of you. rationalizing - defending his own rant. both of you should date and take your DSLR FF and take photos together, then upload them on instagram.
jaycob: First off let me just say that I am no expert in photography so please excuse my lack of knowledge on the subject.My question about this camera is; Why would Sony develop such an great camera at a premium price yet slap a fixed lens on it? You would think that if they were to put a full frame sensor in any kind of camera they would want to open the doors to additional lenses. Am I missing something? Please educate me.
Simplicity or minimalism might be the key. in a few months we might be hearing another breakthrough with lens adapters. Sony is a huge company and the marketing staff will not let you just buy the RX-1 and get on with your life, they will have something else to make the user experience with the RX1 better.
gl2k: $599 for the optical viewfinder
Very self confident.
No worries China is on the move now for third party viewfinder...lol!

inevitable crafts studio: i think it IS worth the money, but its a sony, so: NOOOO :)
I said the same thing years ago... with a big laugh! Now im a proud owner of many Sony's imaging products. And please dont start with me with Canon or Nikon i got a whole cabinet of em gathering dust. Being a fan boy will not bring you anywhere, being open minded and embracing the technology might make your life easier. peace.
JDT0505: That's a lot of dough for a point and shoot. Personally, I'd go for an X100. Even though it's got a smaller sensor simply because the wider feature set. Seriously, $2800 and it's got a hot-shoe mounted viewfinder?
The pixel pitch on the two cameras are about the same as is the focal length. The Fuji can be got for less than $1000 these days. The only thing it's got going for it is the Zeiss "named" lens. Sorry Sony. Fail.
lol! point & shoot... peasant.
Kevin Coppalotti: "Does this camera make my nose look big dear?" Yes, yes it does. 35mm to short for a flattering portrait.
@KC There is a technique called subject distance. its better for you to stick with your instagram.
Hauer: Sometimes I feel that somewhere down the line, Sony has lost it's focus...
Actually they havent. This comes with a new auto focusing system. :P
I LOVE THE BLACK COLOR!!!
Ok Sony you win, im buying this one. BUT you have to promise 2013 the FF you guys been keeping in the R&D department. One of your lab rats squealed!
2013 RX PRO> Interchangeable lens> Optical and Electronic viewfinder> 16 mpxl new exmor sensor technology> 1.800 USD for body only
...Dont mind me im just day dreaming. :)
tommy leong: i like the ideaBUT not the price....
SONY you can't keep coming with great ideasand poor execution.EVENTUALLY, you will run out of steam
