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.

The one thing that should hold you back from the RX1 is the abysmal autofocus performance it exhibits. When will your kids not be moving when you want to take their picture? Basically never - so the RX1 will never really cut it for your subjects!

Actually, my kids do pretty well when we ask them to stop so that I can take a picture. Granted the moment is a quick moment but they do stop. So when I say that I'm taking pictures of my little, it's not like I'm running behind them trying to take action shots all day long. I use the camera to take pictures of our family and of the kids in the moment. Yes, sometimes, they are random shots where I try and capture of moment of whatever it is they're doing and other times, I'll ask them to stop for a second so I can take a picture of whatever it is that's of interest.
