Wayne, I don't understand your attitude. You act like people that get a bad one are noticing things that aren't true and/or just want to talk bad about the camera?
My first copy also was a bad one and that's a FACT. Decentered lens (and big dust on the sensor), I posted the evidence. My second one is great and I love it.
Sony's QC is very average for this camera, because I've seen quite a few similar reports.
It's very good that people talk about it, maybe that way Sony will get the message one day. They shouldn't be ignored...Show more →
As I have said before, I was not referring to you, Morty or martin, those who had bad copies, QC problems.
I was talking about those people who did not have the camera making statements like the lens is not that good or not good at infinity distance. Do you think that is true? Philip posted a link to a guy who showed this was false.
Very early on, the first images posted here by aswnavy02, some were saying the lens was not sharp etc.
This is separate from the QC problems.
If you guys want to still talk about QC then you need to get more data than just the small sample size in this forum before you can make any accurate statements about QC for this camera.
I have been sent a decentered 21zf before. I have no idea if the lens got mishandeled in shipping or what.
The fact that your copy had dust in side and was decentered, maybe someone used it, dropped it , and then returned it. Also I never saw you post any images showing the decentering. I only remember Martin posting some test images of some book pages shot at way too close distance to not rule out the camera not being square to the target. The amount of difference in those shots from left and right side was not huge.
Mr. Cicala at Lens rentals who tests a lot of lenses can tell you how often the left and right sides differ by a small amount in imatest scores.
The images and testamony from lots of different photographers plus all the solid reviews of the RX1 prove the excellent IQ from this Zeiss lens and sensor.
People who never used the camera made negative statements about the camera and it was not like they were saying it was a QC issue. They were not seeing the sharp images and acknowledging them. They did not even say what particular image they were basing their statement on. Now people who just got the camera are saying how the AF was better than what they were expecting after seeing all the negative comments.
And because of the high price, some expected perfection which is unrealistic.
