Re: RX1 vs. Canon 5D iii

I had an RX1 and now have instead settled with the Canon 6D. I have the 40/2.8 pancake when I want to go really small. I purchased the 6D and the Sigma 35/1.4 and the pancake lens for less than the RX1. The RX1 produces gorgeous images. But the Sigma 35/1.4 with my 6D competes very well. If I wanted a zoom, then I'd strongly consider the Tamron 24-70/2.8 VC since it competes very nicely with the Canon L glass and the Tamron also has image stabilization.

I suspect people have give you enough advice so I won't weigh in. But I am very happy with my 6D. I carry it everywhere and it is very bulky compared to the RX1 (or even the NEX 5N I still have). I used to have a Nikon DSLR before I was really into photography and I left it at home most of the time. I have no clue how motivated you are so I won't guess. But I suspect you'll find the right camera for your needs.
