A nice side effect to this - that I had to make sure to treat RX1 like a "real" camera - is that it soon started to feel like one.
This is the key comment in this thread.
Sony is fully familiar with professional camera use, mostly in the video space.
The RX1, both the quality of construction, and in its devastatingly (I love that word ) neutral colours, requires the hands of an experienced photographer. The lack of OVF/EVF built in fools some people.
I find I have had to do more work with the RX1 on colour profiles in lightroom. Unlike Canon (with its over warm processed RAW file), Nikon (with its over saturated processed RAW file) or Leica (with its weirdly processed (or unprocessed) RAW file) the Sony RX1 expertly analyizes the scene.
If you take a scene with bland colours, the RX1 will reproduce it stunningly blandly. You need to enhance the colours yourself if you want to lie
It reminds me of a hifi analogy. The most important thing is the source. Expert hifiers know that if you have £1500 to spend on a good CD or vinyl setup, £1000 on the CD player, £300 on the amp and £200 on the speakers.i.e. a good amp and speakers just perfectly reproduce the source. So a cr@p source on a good amp and speakers will be shown to be wonderfully cr@p.
People buying the RX1 thinking they are getting a luxury P&S camera will be disappointed.
Sony's biggest crime was making this part of the cybershot series
