Because Nikon is about to introduce the first low-price Full Frame Camera D600 or just $1499 . Not only do I get a Huge and wonderful Viewfinder, I can change lens too. $1400 is nearly 50% of $2800 that Sony is asking for for its RX1 with fixed 35mm f/2.

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

OK then buy that camera - the RX 1 seems to be for a few people who want that IQ in a tiny package and are prepared to put up with the "limitations" of a fixed prime lens, no built in viewfinder, etc.

BTW the $1499 price of the D600 is still a rumour - my guess is that it will actually be at least 10% more.
