I'm in the market to finally upgrade to full frame and I've narrowed down my choices to either the Sony RX1 or the Canon 5D iii. I know these two cameras are in completely different categories and that's what making the decision so difficult. I guess I wasn't really even considering the RX1 at first because of the fixed 35mm. It was the quality of the pictures and the size that drew me in. If I buy the 5D iii, I'd purchase the 24-70 ii lens with it to start off.

So I know that deciding which camera to pick will ultimately fall to my style of shooting but I'd like to ask for your guys' opinion or suggestions on things to consider when deciding between the two cameras.

I would probably say that my primary focus at this point is taking pictures of my little kids. They're 5.5, 4, and 6 months.

i added the bolding and underlining to your statement, above. that's the showstopper. there is no one who owns this camera who says it's a first choice for kid photography. can you get some good, even great, photos of your kids? yes. will you miss shots you want to kick yourself for? probably. several people in a recent thread talked about loving the rx1 but packing it up and sending it back for a refund or selling it after a few months over this issue. i have the camera and love it, i don't own canon, so i'm not pushing another camera. just telling you what other users with the same concern as yours have said.
