So, the long-delayed ZX1 has eventually arrived, but to me it seems that it's not only very over-priced, but years out of date. I certainly wouldn't buy one, but then, I wasn't much tempted by the RX1Rii or Q2. I'd be more tempted by the A7C if I wanted a compact FF camera.

The 2 cameras are so different that I don't think they are comparable. As DPR describes it

"Zeiss needed to do something a little different; instead of being mostly a phone that has some extra camera bits on it, the ZX1 is perhaps best thought of as a camera with some phone bits built in (like another old-timer, the Nikon S800c)."

That's just how much of Andorid is surfaced (I believe the Sony cameras also use an Android foundation). They're both fixed lens FF compacts with Zeiss 35mm f/2 lenses, and a rather dated specification.
