Re: RX1 vs. Canon 5D iii

I completely understand what you're saying and I agree that it's not going to be the best camera to take pictures of my little kids.

But that's where the compromise comes in and the difficulty that I'm having comes into play. I can have the camera with me at all times and not get some or even most of the shots that I take of my kids with the RX1 OR I can get zero shots with the 5D iii because of the better AF that I will not be taking it with me at all because of the size and weight.

To counter agrue that point, I could say that I can get the 5D iii and use it on special occassions or where it would make sense to bring the camera and have my S95 do daily duty in my wife's purse or in my pocket. I can still take some good shots with the S95 and something is better than nothing in that regards but then I go back to thinking, the whole point of even looking at the RX1 was I can upgrade to FF instead of using the S95 for daily shots.

Wish I could just get both the RX1 and the 5D iii but money doesn't grow on trees.
