I am soliciting advice re this: My RX1 is 2 year and 2 month old. I have treated this great camera as a baby, no dust, no humidity and no high g's, but recently after switching it on it made a funny voice and then stopped focussing permanently. Now, I have never been overly impressed with the focussing capabilities of the rX1, but this is too much. So, returned the camera to the dealer in The Netherlands with my complaint. After review I received a quote of €1186 for repair, which, after me...

Finally bought a FE28mm F2. Not a fan of its hood, I was wondering if any other member has tried alternatives? Would the RX1 hood work on this lens? Cheers

Anything about the RX2 ?! I'v been witting years for the RX2 but it seems like sony is not that excited to continue with it Maybe the sales wasn't that great! for me the RX1 is like a dream come true Amazing quality body+photo .. Just an amazing classic looking camera .. I can go all day and what do you want to see in it? i think they will replace the flash with EVF all i want is a faster lens .. 1.8 with that new curved sensor  i just can't wait

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...
