That's cute Helena. The rendering of the 35/2 Sonnar is most special in the close up range IMHO.
Btw, I still think it's a shame that Sony doesn't release any firmware updates for this camera! Both my RX100m3 and (ex)A7 have the simple option to select a small AF point. Why not update the RX1 too then?
Yes & yes
The RX1 shines with subjects in the 3-10 foot range. Not just the foreground, but background as well, regardless of aperture. That's the sweet spot.
And I would think sony is so involved with their other cams of late that they totally neglected the RX1 developments through firmware. Some things could easily be improved upon in an update in regards to AF/MF focusing. Sadly, doubt we'd ever see them. It would be cool if the camera firmware was open sourced where third parties could tinker and there could be plugins or the such. Though the market could be pretty small.
