I really like my a99 and it's new and very good, but it worked against me in that the RX1 images I was seeing here and elsewhere (often in good hands) looked very familiar, but with a compelling factor X added to the mix...and the 35mm FL with f2 or so is pretty important to general photography..I 'only' have the 35-70 CY, a little slow. It has soft global contrast but very high 40lpmm fine detail. It's a landscape specialist for me.
I'll do a tripod test soon, the RX1 will win hands down re 'sharpness' due to the SLT and 35mm is not the zoom's best FL, nevertheless I want to see. Esp for the rendering comparison, colour, depth, dof at f4-f8. The 35-70 grows on me the more I try to dislike it, even after years with it. It handily sees off my other 50mm lenses for what I want, despite lacking their qualities in other areas.
I'd like to see a RX1 and ZE 35/2 comparison also for these qualities. The thing is: the little camera has two and half more stops of DR at base ISO than a 5Diii. I used to easily see the difference between say, Velvia and Astia, that was about 1.5 to 2 stops. Maybe I am missing something, the extremes might be marginal in appearance...
