Millsart, so you ditched the A7r for the RX1 again? Interesting
A7r just couldn't really meet the needs I had for the system, mainly due to lack of native glass, and as much as I hoped some of the lower cost alts would work, they results really didn't seem that ideal.
I'm not wiling to spend the crazy money required for a Leica WATE for example, and the VC seem less than stellar, same with Zeiss ZM18 and such.
I couldn't see spending what is still a pretty hefty chunk of money for body, adapters and glass, just to have "good enough" corners if I stopped down to f11. I bought into it under the (perhaps silly) assumption that it was going to work great with basically anything you stuck on there, which certainly didn't happen.
If/when some native wide and tele options come available I may revisit it, but for now, I find the RX1 is the better 35mm option for me. I'd love to see a native 18 or 21mm prime, and maybe a 75 or 90mm as well, but who knows if that will take until 2015
I'm just not really that interested in buying/testing/returning a endless parade of old alt glass and adapters.
I just wanted to ideally get a good FF mirrorless, throw it in a small shoulder bag with a couple of VC M mounts and keep the cost reasonable. A7r just doesn't deliver that right now.
If/when a good ultra wide native zoom or ultra wide fast prime comes out, I could probably see myself just buying it with a used A7 (likley will be plenty on the market sooner or later) and using it side-by-side with the RX1. Maybe add a fast tele prime to the kit as well
two FF 24meg bodies, 3 focal lengths covered along with some backup redundancy for travel, less lens changes, option for silent shooting with the RX1 etc.
