  • Speak of the devil: sonyalpharumors posted (in response to a post from diglloyd) that an updated RX model should be coming out this year, specifically a FF RX (i.e. RX2): http://www.sonyalpharumors ...
  • I've been watching various ebay auctions for the RX1, looking for the right price point at which I can convince my better half that I should pick one up.  Looking at the 30+ auctions that have ...
  • That's what I thought initially, but then I saw this quote from the DPreview interview with Kimio Maki:
  • Note: I added the bold emphasis above from the original. I've been speculating that an RX1 refresh in the vein of the RX100 MKII is probably what these rumors portend.  In light of the hybrid AF on ...
  • Ditto to this, although I'm thinking weather sealed is good enough. Also I'm guessing it might be easier/cheaper to switch in the 24 Mp A7 sensor rather than bump up to 36. Hope the PDAF hit ...
  • This kind of overlaps with this thread: No Future for the RX1... ? From that post: I'm thinking Sony might refresh the RX1 in 2014 to a MKII to keep it at the same relative price point. Maybe a ...
  • Good point.  This further leads me to hope that we'll see a MK2 refresh of the RX1/R with the A7's chip with on-sensor phase detect.  It's an upgrade some current owners may want and would help ...
  • Replied in RX1 MKII?
    I guess I'm thinking it might be likely given that the current RX1 might see some downward pressure on it's price with the new A7 release price point (A7 + Ziess 35 f2.8 = $2498).  Granted that's ...
  • Created questions RX1 MKII?
    With the announcement of the A7 and it's Hybrid AF, I wonder if we'll see an RX1 MKII refresh with this new sensor in the near future.  Perhaps wifi as well?  Thoughts?
  • I wondered this myself, but I wonder if the RX1's discreteness will keep it in the Sony lineup. I considered this when heard the shutter sound on the A7 from the CameraStore video (at about the ...
  • I wonder if Sony was inspired by this: http://www.artefactgroup.com/wvil/
  • Looks like Sony noticed this a while back: http://www.artefactgroup.com/wvil/ I wonder when a full frame QX1 will be out ;)? On a more serious note: I wonder if they've thought of detaching the ...
  • In a previous thread Enrique suggested at fixed Tri-Elmar type lens (28-35-50). I'd love that as I hardly ever go higher than 50mm. I think I work 5%-80%-15%, respectively in those focal lengths. ...
  • Thanks GeorgeP256. That's what I was getting at: don't crop (i.e. "zoom") with your feet and perspective will be pretty much the same.  Unless there are some weird lens characteristics for the ...
  • Pardon my noobness, but isn't this incorrect?  If you shot a portrait with a 35mm at the same distance to the subject as with the 50mm and cropped the 35mm to the same size of the nominal 50mm, ...
