Curious on if anyone has any input here.  I miss the 35mm focal length of my RX1. I loved the images I got out of the camera: great character, extremely sharp, and enjoyed the macro ring. Im looking for a 35 to go with my current a7R and future a7RII.  I am not interested in the 2.8, manual focus is fine, and am looking for one that is sharp & compact. I have narrowed it down to these two (for now). Loxia +/- | Made for FE, great build quality, sharp / Busy Bokeh, expensive Voigtlander +/- |...

I've searched and searched but can't find an answer to this. In the days of film, my SLR let me focus with the lens wide open, then stopped down when taking the picture. If I wanted to preview depth of field, there was a lever for that, but manual focusing was easier with a bright image and shallow-as-possible depth of field. My Sony RX1 drives me crazy when manually focusing because it insists (unless I've missed some menu setting) on stopping down to the set aperture all the time, even when...

Hi, when I was using the RX100 in the past, I was impressed with its LCD screen in bright sunlight (with the menu setting for bright sunlight). Does somebody have both, the RX1 and RX100, and can tell me whether the LCD screen of the RX1 in bright sunlight is as good as the one in the RX100? I use nowadays a Ricoh GR and the screen of that one is underwhelming in bright sunlight and significant inferior to the RX100. Thanks

I am an extremely paranoid guy about equipment with fair amount of GAS, and quickly worried about my gear losing their value (and of course we know how bad it is with sony especially).  The only gear that I really don't even care about is my RX1, but other than that guy, be it a laptop, lenses, boides, I am just always so anxious! The fact that I am currently unemployed going into grad school in a few months also don't help.  Anyhow, for some reason, there really aren't that many real user...

Simple question from a simpleton. I own an RX-1 and an A7II. Is it worth the money for me to invest in the 35 1.4 Distagon or is the FL covered adequately by my RX-1? I understand there is no stabilization on the RX-1 and there is the full stop difference in speed going from f2.0 to f1.4. Also, the only review for the 35 1.4 on B&H is not good. Yet Steve Huff loves it ;)   Who should I believe? Please weigh in! --http://www.flickr.com/photos/joelcure/

I found a local Sony store that has cameras on display for customers to play around with. I had a brief crack at the RX100 Mk3, RX10, RX1 and the A7R. One thing I noticed was the AF lock acquisition of the A7R was significantly worse than my experience with the A7. The store somehow had a 24mm/1.8 lens on the camera, but I don't supposed that would have any impact on the AF performance of the body. It was a decently lit environment. At f1.8 I was able to shoot at ISO400 or so, so it was by no...

Hello! I am new to digital, and sony RX1 is my first "such" camera. I have about three decades of photography experience behind, but translating it into the RX1 interface seems slightly beyond my grasp, especially given the rather poor user manual that I have. I would like to ask you to help me set the B+W Creative style, that allows shooting a BW jpeg and a raw color. I'd like to associate this style with one of those three memory positions, that is... uhm.. 1, 2 and 3. I tried to press the...

After downloading Yosemite a few weeks ago to my 2012 MacBook, and the Aperture update that goes with it, Aperture can no longer handle the RAW files from my RX1 - the images become corrupted and the machine slows to a crawl, eventually becoming unusable. Apple has tried several fixes over the phone with me, including re-downloading Yosemite and Aperture, and also trying it in a new hard drive partition, but nothing has worked. Does anyone have any insights into what is the fix for...

My 24z is glued to my a6000. I love everything about this combo with the exception that I would prefer it to be more pocketable, and more subtle since I like to use it close up on people. I have realized that (for now) 35mm is hands-down my favourite focal length. I have seen a lot of samples from the RX1 and I can definitely see a visual benefit to using it over the 24z+a6000 for what I like to shoot (indoor gatherings, kids, and some travel). Maybe not huge benefit, but the RX1 images can...

Hey guys, Just got a Sony TGA-1 thumb grip for my RX1R, and when its locked in, there is movement/wobble in the thumb piece (up/down).  Is this just a defective unit or have others experienced this? I'm really kind of surprised by the build quality for how much it costs, the locking mechanism is plastic.  It would be great to hear if others experience wobble from theirs. Thanks all. Cheers
