Has anyone done that or considering? assume you have the zeiss 24mm to sell in exchange.

The review seems to be really good for rx1, but the accessories is keeping me away...

If you've done it, how much better do you find the rx1 to be over the nex 7 combo?

Say if I used only the E mount 24mm f/1.8 on the NEX 7, I would be tempted, but they aren't that different.  I would only be tempted if I shot a lot of base ISO shots and wanted the best quality, or maybe wanted a little better quality for the high ISO shots as well.

But as soon as you consider that, you also have to consider that say a Nikon D600 with 35mm f/2 lens is less money and offers a lot more features including interchangeable lenses.

Also, a Canon 6D or used 5dII with a 40mm f/2.8 would be similar effective aperture as the Zeiss 24/1.8 on the 7 and just a bit longer field of view and would still be relatively small.

I think the only reason to buy the RX1 is if you want a very small full frame camera without a lot of features for a lot of money.  There is a market for this kind of camera though.
