Ergonomics can be improved, a lack of image quality can not!
I think one can easily make an argument either way, and that it just comes down to personal preferences .
For me, absolute "technical image quality" has not been very important to me for a long time. Simply because as an artist, I need to put a lot more into creating an image for it to have value, technical elements almost become irrelevant as long as they're communicative enough. So once a reasonable standard is met, it's almost all about ease of use, enjoyment, ergonomics - which if way below par from the beginning, can only be tweaked so much. If, for example, a camera is terribly small, missing some basic buttons for direct input, makes handling difficult (maybe even painful after some time!), then it would be too much for some and unable to 'improve'. Of course, what we call a reasonable standard in image quality is entirely subjective - but my point is that the creator can always improve (or strive to improve) his vision, technique, timing etc. But the creator cannot physically add buttons, stretch cameras, etc. They can adapt a different technique of sorts, much like a new vision, but for me one is clearly holding back the end goal more than the other .
Just IMO of course.
FWIW this is a general opinion, not specifically about the RX1, for which I haven't handled.
