'$2800 may seem a lot for a “compact” but that is before you see the images.'
'Attractive design gets admiring glances'..these caught my eye.
Thanks tulaev, that was a fun read..I agree perhaps 95%, and even the reviewer understands it is a cut down, first cut, stripped out hotrod of a camera, exactly why it was irresistable, lol. And why a lot of users can't get on board at the same time. I do feel it is an experienced photographer's camera which would be excellent to grow into nevertheless, if need be.
So no hinged LCD, no decent video, no ibis, no nice metal bits, and so on. They wanted one thing - top image quality from a DSC as in digital still camera! It's so good at what is does best it is almost embarrassing.
I have to say, if I was Sony I would be heading plenty of venture capital towards the Cybershot design team rather than the other areas, except for the other big project the 'FF NEX' which might resemble an RX anyway.
Even slow AF, plastic focus ring and associated quirks - though I disagree re peaking only only with focs mag being an issue - is kind of a backhander from Zeiss for not using a manual focus lens, which I would had loved.
Nice review, snappy conversational writing style, make the point with emphasis and style.
