Boss of Sony: On the Pentax Q, this would be a 90-450mm lens.

I was being ironic...

Yeah it would look great, just the right lens, a really balanced set up.

A CEO at a loss. Price is paramount. Not a luxury brand, Perry? Is dementia contagious at Hasselblad? The price of Stellar and the other Sony-based cameras does not count? How Pentax managed to release a superb MF camera system (645D) at the price (body) of Stellar? Wakie, wakie...

There's only one thing left now to achieve perfection: To rename the camera to "Leica". Sorry, I'm in a Leica-bashing streak.. :-)

RStyga: Since there are people that pay many thousands to buy primitive cameras like Leica's and still be happy, this one is certainly not bad at all in a general sense: it has more than enough controls and a more than decent sensor to enable any photographer who knows how to take a photo to be merry.

It is a fact that Canon/Nikon/Pentax have failed to successfully - all but peripherally - enter the DSLM market with competitive products. However, Pentax appears to be winning the DSLR APS-C battle with superb all-around high-end but inexpensive products whereas Canikon still hold their fort intact due to their extensive line of lenses and strong FF offerings.

@ TriezeA72 An up to date sensor for $7K sure...

probert500: To say the a7r is "plagued" with shutter shock is untrue.

Does RX1 have the same issue with shuttershock?

RStyga: Leica's new fixed lens camera is too bulky and too expensive, and no EVF of FF sensor will compensate for it. An A7II would be a more prudent choice. But Leica's target group of victims is immune to these arguments so happy ending for all..

Exactly "pretty decent price for a Leica", not for a camera.
As for size I'd prefer an RX1:

Impressive. However, I can't help thinking what a successor to 17-35/2.8-4, a superb all-round performer, would have been, that is, retianing the lightweight and small size! I understand this is a constant max F2 but size does matter.

dcolak: Is it just me or that leica red logo is a bit crooked?

Maybe the whole camera is crooked... no this, no that... and Leica followers like it. Everybody's happy.

RStyga: Does it have AF MICROADJUSTMENT?

Just now, I had a very quick read and found out that it does not have this feature A quick Y/N it would have saved me the time to read a page or more. Anyway, thanks for responding.
Without AF microadjust it's pretty useless in non-LV PDAF mode with any lens with a large aperture. It's a really bad decision by Canon's marketing dept to intentionally cripple most models like that, especially since DSLMs dominate the market with a highly accurate AF system by design.

No, Richard, I haven't. I only had a quick look at the specs and intro summary text. I noticed that it had both LV using sensor PDAF and the conventional non-LV PDAF.
