Amazing ISO 5000
This is not innovation. Sony has been doing the phase detection autofocus with their SLT cameras for a while now. Having said that, it is nice to know Canon is playing catch up.
JWest: Still no face tagging = still no upgrade from me.
that will be on the next upgrade worth another $79.00 hahha
I am sure they had all these features from beginning. They just want to release them every two years and call them UPGRADE!
Another example why EVF is the future...
mumintroll: This camera NEVER can reach picture quality of Merrill DP2 on basic ISO. NEVER. You don't believe? Check this images and compare with RX1.Images are in discussion from Frank.http://www.photographyblog.com/reviews/sigma_dp1_merrill_review/comments/
Photographyblog rated DP2 an average of 3.5 while RX1 4.5-5 stars so no match at all!
No need to criticize an awesome camera according to many reviews. Just be honest and say "I cannot afford it"....
Amateurbob: The first attribute I look at in a digital camera is dynamic range. The dynamic range of the DSC-RX1 is less than that of my Nex-C3. Why would I want the camera over the Nex? What does the bigger sensor area do for me? The end goal is a picture.
Landscape (Dynamic Range)
RX1 14.3 EvsNex C3 12.2 Evs
So not sure where you got your source...
John BN: Based on the jpeg comparisons and the raw comparisons there's no way I would shell out for this camera in preference to my NEX C3 which goes on showing significantly better definition than most other cameras reviewed in its class and above it. Just check the comparisons in the full review.
LMAO, look at this ratings to find out http://www.dxomark.com/index.php/Lenses/Camera-Lens-Ratings why you are wrong...
Read this why the camera is worth the price...http://www.dxomark.com/index.php/Publications/DxOMark-Reviews/Sony-Cyber-shot-RX1-Carl-Zeiss-Sonnar-T-2-35-Is-this-the-ultimate-moderate-wide-angle-lens/Measurement
I suggest to read the lens comparison of RX1 to the best of Nikon and Canon lens. Bloody sharp! No wonder RX1 is worth $2,800. Nothing compare!
Bloody sharp lens!
I think RX1 is the most loved, hated and most discussed "Preview" and "Review" articles on this website...
Sony must be doing something right to generate this kind of discussions.
Stick with your iPhone camera if you keep complaining about the camera price. Maybe you should change your hobby or profession. This camera is unique, quite innovative and worth every penny.
Canon is falling behind this market. Nikon high end compact is in the works and Sony is way ahead with Rx1.
Whoa, Canon has a lot of catching up to do designing a DSLR with vacuum cleaner. Does D600 camera comes with HEPA filter?
Wow, not good.
Skyfall - best Bond movie ever..
Ruy Penalva: You pay for a Nikon but get a Sony. Why not buy the original?
Der, you don't know what you are talking about. Sony Zeiss and Sony G lens are as good or even better than Nikon or Canon lenses. Remember, it is quality than quantity!
Most of the bad comments are just haters of Sony or could not afford to buy it so they'll say anything to discredit this camera. A99 is very capable profressional camera. Just look at other samples and reviews from professionals, A99 is a beast!
