Does it have the same low pass filter as the D800E or no filter at all?

lighthunter80: Well, it is a full frame sensor with a 35mm f/2.0 lens on it with all the DOF advantages. I would consider to buy one if it had an EVF/OVF _included_ at that price.

I am sure this is not the last of this type of camera. If in the future any producer can come up with a similar concept under $2k they would sell like hot cake.

For all who think it is too expensive they should really consider the Fuji X100S.

Fuji X100s is really nice, image quality is as good as old full frames. RX1 is for people that value the rendering of zeiss glass and want to be able to shoot at high ISO's with very low noise. Its the best fixed lens camera in the world, and the most expensive. (unless im forgetting about a new leica fixed lens..dont think so)

Jimmy jang Boo: Can a 24 megapixel Bayer compete with a 46 megapixel Foveon X3?

If not, why would anyone buy an RX-1?

Foveon should have as much details as a 30MP bayer sensor but full frame sensors tend to do quite a bit better than APSC assuming low ISO. High ISO, the foveon falls apart. The sigma DP cameras have many issues including battery life. Sometimes you can only get about 40-50 images per charge. That is like one roll of film lol. They do have nice quality at low ISO and for the price is a good camera.

What $900 camera are you speaking of? This is currently one of the best sensors on the market (not even talking about the lens) It is included in the D600 and A99. Both of them in the 2-3K range with no lens. If you cant see the value in it, stick with your current camera.

What kind of car do you drive Jimmy? Do you think a BMW M, MB AMG, Ferrari 458 is worth the money? All of them do the same basic thing, take you from point A to B. If you happy with what you have, we are happy for you. For every product to come to market, there must be demand. I can guess your not in the market for a RX1 and much less a 458 but who are you to judge they are not worth the $$. A product is worth what people are willing to pay. I work with Olympus endoscopes. They take 2MP images and yet cost $75,000 + for a working setup..maybe more. Do you think a camera that takes 2MP images cost more than highend car? For the doctors using it, its worth every penny since they bring in $4000 for every time its used for 30 mins.

Mssimo: Some big tech guy on the radio took this 5DmkIII to the super bowl, guess what happened.... They did not let him in with the camera. He did not get any pictures and it ruined the experience for the entire group. How much is this worth to you. Maybe the RX1 comes at a premium, but being able to take it places you could not take a DSLR may be priceless for its buyers. Lets take a look at the numbers:

Full frame compact sensor camera: +-$1900
Zeiss Wide Angle 35mm f/2 Biogon T* with autofocus: +-1000
Total: $2900

6D/D600: +- $1900
Sigma 35mm F1.4: $900
Total: $2800

Having a great time at the super bowl with many images that captured the moments...Priceless...or at least worth the extra $100 bucks.

This is assuming you want the best of the best, lots of other great cameras on the market: RX100, X100s, OMD and so on.

Re: stevens37y

I think the lights went in in the super bowl for 30 or so minutes. This would have been a great opportunity to test out the low light capabilities of the RX1.

The lens he had? No idea, but it does not really change my point much.

Hey Jimmy, on your moms birthday..do you take her out to McDonalds and explain to her that a big mac as the same calories as a nice dinner but for $13 dollars less? When that day comes around, send me a message and I will give you $100 so you can take her out to a nice place.

In reply to:

Benarm: The most interesting thing about A58 is the supposedly improved sensor with 1-stop better noise performance over its predecessor. Can't wait to see DXOMark results.

14 or 15 stops DR?

alaskaman1919: I can't understand why TTL (viewfinder) isn't offered on these somewhat inexpensive cameras. Trying to take a half way decent photo with a 3 inch screen in sunlight is near impossible. Why even go there....I'll keep my DSLR thank you!

Just buy a black rag and glue it around the camera. You will have yourself a great 3" 100% viewfinder.

Did you know that blu-ray does not support 1080p60? Only thing it would be good for is slow motion in post.

Nikon007: My advice has always been "stay away from wide Gamut unless you know what your doing". For me it's not worth the hassle to see colors no one else can. You don't see it in print, your clients don't see it, on the web they can't be seen. So what good is it? It's great for a dedicated graphics station but for general use it causes many folks a lot of head aches. So if WG is your cup of tea go for it. If your not sure do your research first, there are lot of threads on this subject going back for years and nothing has really changed.

What about if you print?

garyknrd: I have a cheap Dell laptop. And am amazed at the processing in Raw i get. I am going to buy the 27" just because of the excellent laptop. I am seriously getting into high quality bird photography. Do you guys think this is a good move? Can I expect much better processing with PS-5?

Make sure your laptop can support a monitor with resolution of 2560x1440. If its a current laptop, you should have a DP or display port on it. Looks like a HDMI but its thicker.

In reply to:

Mssimo: If your shopping for monitors, make sure you buy a IPS panel. The other common type that is very bad for color and view angle is called TN.

Dell Ultrasharp monitors use LG panels; these are the same panels used in apple's best monitors. They are also used by HP pro line monitors.

I have two U3011's. (decoded name: Ultrasharp 30" 2011) They are huge. The 27" has more pixel density but its 16:9 (Less Height than 16:10; 2560x1600 vs 2560x1440)

You can pick up a nice 24" IPS panel for around $300. I like dell brand monitors. Apple, HP, Dell tend to use LG panels but they do use different layers of films on them. Some will be full gloss, my U3011 are matte. If you get a 27 or 30", keep in mind you can not use the full resolution with HDMI (HDMI is limited to 1920x1080 or a tad more). You need dual link DVI or displayport. So you might have to upgrade your graphics card.
