The RX1 is for someone who wants a full frame sensor in a small package. Period. Full frame. Not many cameras provide that. The next follower is the Leica M8M9. They are bigger thatn the RX1. Next you have the FF cameras from Nikon and Canon. REally bigger.

....

IF you need a full frame camera, this will be the cheapest on the market (At least until the A99 gets out, and you are not considering the lenses in this comparison) and it comes with a lens. So you could consider it actually a cheap camera (For what it provides)

I look at the RX1 as a bit like one of those medium format film cameras with a fixed lens - only in a tiny package. Those cameras were also considered expensive and targeted at a tiny market. This should provide similar IQ and have similar limitations - though not size.
