Hi All

I had my RX1 up for sale on ebay but changed my mind and kept it.

Will use it has my take every where camera'

My A7r and 55mm f1.8 I will build my system around, all I need is 16/35mm f4FE Zoom and short tele 85/100mm f2 if and when Sony get to release them.

The 70 200mm f4 to big and to white for my needs.

A few shots with the RX1 at the link below.

Cheers

Rob

I think you were the reason why I bought the RX1. I owned many of them (bought/sold) and I never liked the slow AF but once I sold it, I miss it.

Recently I almost bought a RX1R for $1400 on ebay but backed out right before the Buy It Now button. I know once I received it I will be disappointed with the AF again. The a7(r) AF is slow but it is so much faster than the RX1 though.

I think if the OP should consider AF speed when deciding on the cameras.

My pick would be the a7 (skip the a7r).
