Thank you very much Mescalamba! The problem is that I don't enjoy shooting with RX1. I use it for a while, then I get more and more annoyed by it so I let it rest for a few weeks. Then I miss its fantastic image quality and the circle starts again... Also, it's often not wide enough for me, so I thought I'd instead go for A7 with a wider lens, but now you have all convinced me that it's best to keep both for a while and see what happens.
Thanks Jochen, I appreciate that you shared your thoughts....Show more →
The thing is, if you don't feel particularly for a piece of equipment it's very hard to like it. I've had lenses which sometimes produce great images but i'm not feeling it. Sometimes I just can't bear to sell some of my gear for sentimental reasons or just cause I feel i should give the lens another go, but the there's always this lingering feeling it's just not right for me. Same for focal lengths, since 35mm may not be your thing. I found it hard to justify the rx1's price the first time round when I bought it new and hence sold it.
But at the same time, I purchased one used recently almost solely due to the images in this thread, and notably yours and a few others.
