I love my RX1R for daytime use. But at night, despite its  FF sensor and ability to go up to 3200 without much issue, the focusing and noise levels above 6400 could be better. This is where Df could fill the gap, night time high ISO photos. But the only 35mm lens I have is the old 35/2.8AIS which is pretty good, but not at the same level of the Zeiss 35/2 Sonnar on the RX1R. I need some feedback on the following choices: 1. Sigma 35mm ART - bar none best IQ, with additional benefit of AF,...

I'm considering these two lenses because I don't have a good prime and wide to mid-telephoto zoom for both my D800E and Df. First, the Sigma 24-105mm ART lens. Unfortunately early reviews such as the one on cameralabs.com shows really poor edge performance even when stopped down. Even if it is better than my 24-85VR (of which IQ I detest), D800E may just exacerbate all its flaws. The alternative is to use it for my Df but this camera is not suitable for a long zoom in terms of weight...

All of the sudden on the eve of my first trip to Cuba, I'm having doubts about my camera/lens list. At first I was going to just bring the RX1R and GR, since my favorite FLs are 35mm and 28mm for street and architecture. But then the more I think about it, the more confused I get. Any thoughts for the following alternatives? 1. D800E + Sigma 35mm ART for best IQ, RX1R as backup 35mm, GR in pocket (missing longer FLs) 2. D800E + Sigma 35mm ART for best IQ, Df + Sigma 24-105mm to cover...

Would there be an RX1R replacement in the near future? I am planning to pick this camera up for vacation uses, any idea if I should wait it out or anything else for recommendation? Thanks in advance!

I just purchased a brand new Sony RX1R from sony.com but I tested out the camera and noticed that my first picture started at DSC00829. I am wondering if I have gotten a refurbished camera instead. I would have thought it would start at DSC001.

Is there a reason why I can't find a single picture or thread regarding the use of a ring light like the Sony HVL-RL1 in conjunction with an RX1? Is it just not practical, impossible, or what? Also, where can I find multicolor lens filters and trick lenses for the RX1R? I want to toy with them in video mode. Lastly, what is a quality all-around lens filter for windy, sandy, rainy shoots to protect the lens? Help a noob? ;-)

Hello, Does anyone know how the video on the Sony RX1R compare to the video on the RX1?  Is there any kind of difference, or improvement, in not having the low-pass filter for video? Thanks, Thomas

I have an RX1r as my only full-frame sensor camera, and when packing lightly, I'd like to use it to stitch for shots wider than the 35mm lens. I have been looking at panoramic heads and such, but I'm a bit confused as to what I actually need to make it work. Here's what I know right now: 1) I have a RRS L plate/grip on the camera right now2) I would like to stitch both vertically and horizontally3) I am not looking for actual panoramas, just stitching enough 35mm shots to simulate a 14-20mm...

What would be a reasonable price for a used RX1R?   I have been seriously considering it but don't want to pay full MSRP.  --Dave

I've not had to use my RX1R in the studio until recently, but so far without success because its hotshoe, although ISO compatible and standard-sized, doesn't take my Pocket Wizard TT1 triggers or any of the Nikon flashes. There are a couple of user reports claiming that Pocket Wizard Plus II/III is compatible with the Sony cameras with the new MI hotshoe, but can other owners of Sony models with the new MI hotshoe confirm this?
