Re: 'Wow?", not so much..


I understand the mental gymnastics you are going through.  I had cancelled my order and then decided to go ahead with the purchase once I could see some decent sample photos.

In my circumstance, I really want this camera for a couple of circumstances.  First and foremost... I would love to have a good available light camera.  The high ISO pictures I've seen (and am now finding through my own usage) show the RX1 to be clearly superior to the NEX7.  I want smooth Bokeh.  It seems to deliver that very well.

As for the future of this camera, it may become like the R1 or the 828. Those hold their value very well.  Another way of looking at it, the RX1's entire cost will be less than the depreciation on a Leica M9 over the years.
