Yes and think of all those TLR Rollei's with their fixed Zeiss lenses ,very many still in good use after 40+ years. Let's just hope Sony built the RX1 electronics and body to last and will keep parts available for a long time.

A 24mp camera with a Zeiss lens may become dated but, as long as it lasts, it will never really be obsolete.

You are entitled to your beliefs. IMHO a TLR Rollei offers medium-format film shooting possibility. This always has been a niche market without a lot of alternatives.

What has the RX1 to offer to make it special in that regard? FF? Lots of FF cameras available, cheap too. Think of the value of a D1X in 2-3 years.

My P+S Sony P150 also has a Zeiss lens. That does not make it that special
