Re: R1 vs 5D?

For me, the R1 was a camera I was really hoping would replace a heavy DSLR.  It wasn't, so I sold it after a few months for a 30D.  It was, however, an excellent camera for most occasions.  The Zeiss glass quality and FL range were great.  I just needed better focusing performance.  At that time, it felt like a step backwards going from the 10MP Sony to the 8MP Canon.  In practice, it didn't make much of a difference.  The RX100 M6 on my gear list is my first Sony since the R1 (2006).  I have been very impressed by Sony over the last five or so years - especially with their FF lineup.  So far, my recent little (perhaps too little) addition hasn't disappointed me.
