I rather put up with the weight of FF and pay nearly 50% less, spend the rest of the money on Nikon primes like 28mm f/1.8G and 85mm f/1.8G

That's why this camera isn't for you. I sold my A900 after I quit shooting paying gigs, because I didn't like lugging it around everywhere, even with a single prime. This RX1 will get me back to A900 or better IQ at a fraction of the size, so I'll probably buy it.

I'm going to wait to see some particulars once the camera is official, but I'm pretty excited about it. I had been planning on buying a used M9 and a single prime, and this will be much cheaper than that route, although I may still stick with the M9 and its rangefinder. We'll see.
