A7 and A7R coming! I have no complaints of my RX1R IQ, except that the new FFs have tiltable LCD, weather-sealing and built-in EVF, 3 things that are seriously dragging my RX1R experiences down. Even today, I still do not have the RX1 EVF that I've ordered since August, because the entire country is out of stock here in Canada since July!!!
In any case, is it crazy to sell the RX1R for the above 3 features, and to compromise with a Zeiss 35mm f/2.8 lens, instead of the f/2.0 on the RX1(R)?
The kicker is, the A7R+35mm combo may match...Show more →
Is it crazy? That all depends on what you want and how you use the RX1R. If you shoot at F2 a lot, yes it's crazy. If, like me, you use the EVF tilted up, then it would also be crazy. Also keep in mind that the A7R + 35mm 2.8 will not likely match the RX1(r) in price. You are looking at $2200 for the A7r body and very likely $1000 for the 35 2.8. So, $3200 for a package that is one stop slower vs $2800 (RX1r). Of course, what you get is interchangeable lens capability, more MP's (which we have to see how effective that is vs the RX1 (r)) and wether sealing for the body (but what about the lens?) so that's the trade off. I should add, IF you like using an optical finder in the RX1 hotshoe, that probably does not make much sense with the A7r.
