RX1 - the one trick pony from Sony

It's early days but that shot is impressive and demonstrates the "why" of ff. Not a system camera like mft of course, but I can see a lot of serious photographers wanting one of these or similar in their shirt pocket.

Frankly I don't find the shot impressive and the whole idea of a FF fixed lens compact is a waste of the sensor shackled to one lens - and the price says it all when you see how its lines up against the versatility of the new lower priced Nikon and Canon "budget" FF DSLRs. If Sony had the b*lls to put it into a NEX ILC -sized body it would have made sense. The Sigma Merill DP's probably will turn in just as good resolution at half the price ...or get two so you have a wide and standard for less than the one-trick pony from Sony!
