Re: A 35 and a 50 ? 6K ? No way.

The RX1 cannot quite do portraits? I beg to differ. The classic focal length for portraits is 75-85mm, but good portraits can be gotten at almost any focal length.

Even though that's a fine enough shot, and the guy seems like a friendly person, the bookcase in the background, I'd say it shows exactly what I'm talking about.

But one can shoot portraits with a p&s too .... it all becomes a gray area, where one can put the gray area wherever one wants.

But for me, it's 50.
