The RX1 will probably have a street price of 2,600 to 2,800.

A Nikon D800 + Zeiss 35mm f/2 would be around 4,000 (the Nikon 35mm f/2 isn't great really). Plus would be a lot bigger & heavier.

A Leica M9 & Leica 35mm f/2 will set you back around 9,000 (but lacks auto-focus or video)

Considering what else is on the market it's not as ridiculous a price as people are saying.

I keep hearing all this comparisons with Nikon, Canon, Leica....etc plus lenses. Why do you people keep forgeting that an expensive lens bought for an interchangeable system can be kept for life without losing its value (actually most go up in price with time).
