Mescalamba and sebboh, thanks!

Sorry to post so many photos, but besides Flickr I have nowhere to put them.
It was quite cold yesterday, but we couldn't resist doing some skiing in a nature reserve nearby.

Helena, try 500px or Tumblr. I prefer second as it stores files in 100% quality.

Charles, excellent shots on p.27! Portrait on p.28 is superb!
Martin, excellent set on p.27, really like the 2nd pic with the skaters. Excellent self portrait with the LP!
Helena, excellent composition with the "tilted" building. Also like the other set with the lampposts, kind of reminds of aliens watching me and the movie War of the Worlds! Cool! The last shot with the cross country skiier is also excellent.
Joachen, really like the B&W from the cemetery set. 3rd shot is excellent and my favorite.
joan, cool lomo camera!
weekh, impressive closeup!
littlemt, really nice car shots!

So I was out in the West Coast all week for meetings and probably had my first opportunity to shoot the RX1 extensively. I'm very happy with the file quality from the Sony sensor and Zeiss lens. After getting the EVF, I use it 99% of the time although I wish there was a lock to keep it in place. It falls off too easily. Twice, while I was sitting down for dinner, with the camera straped on my side, the EVF fell to the floor, luckily I checked and found it back but it did cause my heartbeat to go up more than once. Later on, even with gaffer tape on it, it fell out a 3rd time.

The B&W files seems pretty nice and workable. High ISO is quite impressive and allows me to stop down for more depth of field for the type of pictures I take.

BTW, if anyone is interested in using the RX1 for street shooting or journalism work, check out some excellent pictures shot with the RX1 by Magnum photographer John Vink at his blog http://johnvink.com/news/
He also has a nice short writeup on his experiences with the camera for documentary work .. http://johnvink.com/news/2013/02/gear-talk-sony-rx1/

This is my first attempt at posting an image on this forum, please excuse any errors and let me know how not to repeat them.
I had bought the RX1 just the week before going to India and was travelling light, no laptop etc. No way to know what the camera was producing for 3 weeks. My backup was the RX100, a gem that I knew delivered in spades. I left the 5D2 and lenses at home and hoped for the best.

This was in a fairly dark market, lit by lightbulbs as seen, no flash etc.
Handheld, 1/80, f3.5, 1600 iso, all set for standard jpg OOP. No NR etc.
The image here is downsized for convenience, otherwise OOP.

Flickr unless its payed unfortunately doesnt store in 100% quality. Some time ago I think they had 100% even for free, but now they dont. My guess is something between 70-80%. 500px has lvl 11 (confirmed by 500px), Tumblr is 100% (probably up to certain size.. or age? dunno).

Joe, thank you Great B&W set from the airport!!! I ordered a EVF from Amazon yesterday with only 2 in stock. Hopefully they will ship to Australia.

Thanks Charles. I think you'll enjoy the RX1 even more with the EVF. Looking forward to seeing more pics from you soon.

Dovey, nice pics and I agree, files look very clean at ISO1600.
Jochen, excellent shot!

A few pics from my meeting last week. I really had fun shooting these as the camera is small and so quiet that it gets out of the way, even more so than a Leica M.

Thanks.
Nice event shots Joe.
Charles, hopefully you'll have your EVF soon. This camera needs it IMHO. I had one for my first faulty copy and now I'm shooting my second RX1 without one. Don't enjoy the whole P&S feel that way. Because this second copy seems to be a good one I ordered a new EVF which should arrive today.

Fantastic shots everyone.
I'm so tempted to get one of these was thinking of getting a MFT olympus as a partner to and possibly replace a Canon 5D.
The pictures from this are awesome just the lack of any kind of zoom I prefer 50mm focal length.
So very tempting though and half the price of a Leica.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Joe, excellent set of B&W images! Love the range of tones.
Jochen and Joe, I must admit I have not gelled with EVF's in the past, so I am cautiously excited to having another perspective on composing shots!
Suey, I also prefer the 50mm FL for portraits and street shoots. But having a small FF package as the RX1, with the 35 Zeiss Sonnar well matched to the sensor is very hard to beat for now. I have both the M9-P/M-M after having moved all my DSLR equipment about 18 months ago, the RX1 I really love the size and it just works in taking shots without getting in your way.

Thanks for the kind words Charles, Joe, Wayne and Jochen, and to Mescalamba for the photo sharing tips! I'll look into 500px and Tumblr.

Joe, very nice B&W processing in both sets! I can't wait to use my RX1 on a trip.

dovey, looks great! Please post more from India. Are you happy with how RX1 performed?

Jochen, a well balanced composition and great light.

'as the camera is small and so quiet that it gets out of the way, even more so than a Leica M.' An astute observation; I agree, and add that this may be, as yet, a largely unrecognised but major use of this versatile camera. The immediacy of these (very good) images is palpable, as no one reacted to the quiet little camera. It means you can take quite different photographs.
