| p.26 #15 · Sony RX1 FF Mirrorless (fixed lens) |
Incredible. People have been DYING for a full frame compact since the digital revolution began. Now that it may be here, it's not good enough unless it is pocketable. Full frame, in your pocket. Some folks will never be happy.
I don't recall anyone wanting a fixed-lens AF LCD-only (possibly with an attachble EVF) $2700 camera.
What people wanted, at least here on FM, was a FF CSC, i.e. interchangeable lenses. The bad thing about this camera is that the presumably excellent lens will depreciate very fast, along with the sensor and the body, as new sensors are released. Even if there was only the only lens in the system, it would be great if it could be transferred to a new body, in 2 years or so.
That's true for gear chasers, but less important for photographers. We have long since passed what film is capable of and have reached a point where new sensors offer less advantage over the previous ones. Yes there may be the odd bit of improvement but it is less and less.
The world's most iconic photographs have been made with lesser gear than this and if you cant with this new Sony, a new, better sensor isnt going to be the reason why.
Yes, but 99.99% of the market is gear chasers not photographers making the most iconic photographs. I know I want a IL mirrorless FF body with no AA filter that can use my Leica M mount lenses. I am sure Sony would take my desire more seriously than that of a real photographer. After all, I pay for my gear, unlike the real photographers.
The Leica M9 meets your criteria.
It doesn't. Mirrorless requires LV. The M10 should have it though.
