Why is the Sony RX1 assigned to the compact Cyber-shot forum?

eh, in any case ... a minor issue

I'd agree it's one of the most interesting cameras of 2012. If not THEE most interesting camera of 2012.

But unless you want to pay an extra $600 (?) for the optical viewfinder, or some other price for the EVF, it's got no viewfinder ... plus $2800 for the camera itself, which doesn't take interchangeable lenses.

Hardly anybody is going to actually buy the camera.

Tourists in Paris use the back LCD for framing, but pros that want "Full Frame", they don't. So figure around $3400, to get it with a viewfinder.

So beyond the initial announcement interest, it's a minor issue.

Considering Sony is calling it a Cyber-shot, why not just accept the decision the site has chosen ? It's not a subject that really merits the creation of a new Sony forum, nor much discussion. In my opinion.
