Take a picture, it'll last longer.

I agree. All the naysayers touting the "bad" points of the RX1, are the same as those that point out the "bad" points of a Leica. Sony is targeting a segment of high end users that don't bat an eye to drop a few thousand for small camera. Leica has no problems sell $6500 cameras, and Sony won't have a problem selling the RX1. To me a few thousand posters in a dedicated Sony blog poll saying what they like is no indication of what the millions of camera buyers in the world will buy. If I personally could justify it in my budget now, I would be on a pre-order list. I also do not point out the things I don't like about a Leica, or Rolls Royce, because they don't fit in my budget. To each their own, different strokes for different folks. I would love to have an RX1.
