Well I must say this is probably the most amazing camera I have ever used. I can recover blown out highlights you wouldn't believe. The image quality at high ISO is amazing and the shutter is so quit you barely know it's taken a picture. Plus the Carl Zeiss lens is up there with the best I have ever used.

Nice camera. I've been thinking about getting an RX1 for a while. Now I'll wait to hear more about the RX1R, which seems to be the version without the AA filter.

I think it will be the same debate as the D800/800E. You will most likely need a microscope as the 35mm on my RX1 is probably the best fixed focal length lens I have ever used. I have used Carl Zeiss lenses in the past and don't let anyone kid you this is not a rebranded Sony lens.

So I was I an eight week induced coma in 2009 an I assure you I have probably already got an up close view of Hell.lol
I hope somehow you can get one. This is the electronic finder. The optical actually cost more. I guess because of that
little blue emblem on it.

Thats nice. There are lots of things I would get before this would be a viable option. But it is awesome to hear you give it such a great endorsement.

I know I have a problem when in my mind its ok to own a camera that cost more than my car.
