The Sony RX1r ii vs X100f - You get what you pay for

This camera was nice but imo not nice enough for the price at release.
Nowadays its used price is within an enthusiast budget and that makes all the difference in the world.

The review consists mainly of a YouTube video and includes about 50 sample shots.

Smallest digital FF I've ever held.

I made this review a little different and put the RX1r2 next to the Fuji X100f.
The point of that are two:

  1. To show that all cameras have their ups and downs.
    Such a thing as a "better" camera doesn't exist. Its all just subjective feelings of the user.
  2. The Sony lacks some "modern" features but is still more than just an expensive toy.


  • The Lens is great and renders nice images (Leica look)
  • 46mp is pretty sweet when its time to crop
  • High ISO is killer
  • Its tiny. Smallest digital Full Frame I've ever had
  • Tilts screen + EVF is my melody
  • Video isn't too shabby with a mic input and steady shot (it could use a higher bitrate to match the video from the x100f)


  • EVF needs popping (my nail often gets stuck in the switch.. weird)
  • A bit unbalanced, not aweful
  • Battery life suuuuucks
  • The start up could be quicker
  • MF is as it usually is on these cameras... please Ricoh, license snap to others..


EVF and/or tilt screen is great for shooting straight into the sun.

Tilt screen is of course also sweet for low angles.

The small size makes it always handy fro quick snaps.
