| p.3 #4 · Sony RX1 FF Mirrorless (fixed lens) |
love the concept. But... the lens looks awfully big compared to the body. i want w mirrorless for compact and light... this isnt it.
Keep in mind that this new Sony body looks to maybe be even smaller than the RX100. It is a very small camera body, so the lens looks larger than it is.
If we judge the hotshoe to be standard size, I'd have to guess the body would be 4-5" inches long.
Even if it was RX100 sized, at about 4" long though, the depth with the lens is still going to be about 2.5"
Just no way of carrying something in a pocket that is that deep without looking like your very happy to see someone lol
If it therefore needs to be carrying in a small shoulder bag or something, I think I'd rather have more versatility in that bag than a single focal length. XE-1 for example with the 21mm and 50mm equiv's would open up a lot more shooting potential for me, not to mention costing less as a system than this, assuming the price est is correct, and you'd also have a high rez EVF on the XE1
Likewise, if I was willing to carry a bit too large for a pocket type compact around, I think my money would be leaning towards a Sigma DP1m or 2 for just $1000
Again, that would be a camera I wouldn't use that often, but $1000 sure beats $3000 for a fixed lens thats going to sit my desk 9 days out of 10. At least the Sigma would give a bit of a unqiue look with its X3 sensor.
Really what is ironic about all of it when I think about it is that I've got a 35mm f2.0 and 35mm f1.4 for my FF Nikon already.
If I really had a desire to walk out the door and go walk down the street snapping away at 35mm focal length I have, and have had that ability for years now, yet I just don't do it.
Perhaps its a bit more than nothing but a silly case of GAS to even think that "oh, if I went and bought a $3000 35mm fixed lens compact I'd use it all the time"
I can't even remember last time I mounted those lenses onto my D3s
