Re: exciting first step for a new FF revolution

with the lcd or EVF showing you at full image size only the crop section you selected, this could be a viable option for framing et adding focal length versatility.

Well if you are willing to crop an RX1 image down to using the sensor size of other formats, the RX1 is like having a 56mm (equivilent) APSc, a 70mm m4/3, a 96mm f/2 RX100, and a 182mm f/2 HX.

Obviously real zoom would be better, but I would guess they would have to use a higher f/ lens to gain compactness.

As it is, with no focal-length above or below 37mm, it will be a second or third camera for professionals to carry for occasional shots. Few others would pay that kind of money, for a camera with such a narrow capability. The version I suggested earlier, with a 24mm to 140mm or even a 28mm to 100mm lens, at half the price, would be very popular and probably turn a good profit for Sony. So why are they making this camera and not one like I described?
