Just like X100, RX1 is not a camera for everyone, but I've confident it will fit in well with my D4 & D800E.

Aloha Donald,

Great idea , and  suggestion ...  if you choose to shoot with it , I need to look at it closer.

You are shooting with one now?

Do you have a good LINK  with a  discussion on this  RX1 ?

Totally think I could use this as a second body on a paid shoot  ... if I could only trigger my Nikon CLS flashes.   Yes, I could go manual, but sometimes I have them mounted up high and would rather use CLS to control them remotely (even if they are set to manual)

I am way too spoiled with CLS and RadioPoppers PX.

That being said.   a f2 , 35mm FF  is probably all I need for most group shots.  As it is , I am using my 24-70 f2.8  @ 35mm to kill off distortion on the edges.

I could totally work with a good (if not great)  fixed 35mm f2  FF 24mp sensor ... that can also close focus.

My concern:   Low Light AF  .. which is what I do a LOT.  even group shots.

and focus peaking is a good thing .. on the  OK button.  something that would be strange if they cannot correct.
