$3900 US or EU? While things do cost more in Europe, its mostly due to that 19% VAT, not to mention cost of living, average income adjustments. Used gear prices reflect this too, where many listings end much higher in Europe than the US, because shoppers have more money.


It's not apples to apples. Because of the VAT and other taxes, there are a lot of out of pocket costs that US citizens have that are much less in other countries. I could buy a lot of Leica gear for the annual cost of my families' health insurance.

I guess there are more serious photographers over there, driving up the price or at least willing to "overpay". How much is the Nex-7 new right now? Just curious.


I bought the NEX-7 new with kit lens a few weeks ago for $1100.

Absolutely stunning. How far was the subject distance in those first two?


Thanks Dude!

About 3-4 feet away.

More shots to come.
Congrats Morty, Joe!
Happy shooting everyone!

Sorry, I have only shot ZF/ZE versions and Michael is asking about how it compares to ZM versions which are optically different.


I only meant that I thought you were most likely to make a shot with a sharp, distant horizon and 100% crop, not a full comparison.

I like the JPG motor of the RX1. AWB is off quite often, but some PP cures it...

I actually prefer the SOOC in this comparison


It's probably my imagination but I'm starting to like SOOC from Sony whereas I used to hate it... My RX1 and RX100 SOOC shots almost make shooting the gigantic RAW's not worth it for casual snapshots of family / non "formal" shots.

I agree with Vern, I just shot an entire weekend of friends, hiking, wine tasting, food, indoors and outdoors stuff with my RX100 in jpeg only mode and found no faults, in camera processing was excellent, indoors, outdoors, anything I shot, real pleasing results. Sony these days has an excellent jpeg engine.

Interesting, I find this boke to be more Leica-like than Zeiss-like, although the contrast is definitely Zeiss.

Hi Carsten, thanks for this, it puts in words exactly how I have been trying to describe what I see in the test images that have been emerging these past few days.

I feel that way about the rx100. There's practically no point unless its REALLY contrasty.

My rx1 just arrived but I'm having second thoughts so it sits unopened.

Honestly the fastest way to second guess a camera purchase before it arrives is to spend time at dp review. I gotta stop going to that place.

The few pictures in this thread tell me a lot more. The one concern is whether the af is 'event fast'

Bingo! I think you nailed the characteristics very well with that simple statement. In fact, I see many similarities with the 28/2 Summicron which is contrasty, has smooth bokeh and gives bold colors. I haven't found all of these properties at the same time in other Zeiss lenses.

Had to beat Lloyd at posting the first shot of my buddy Jacques with RX1!
A couple of landscape snaps too for those that wanted to see an example.

Bokeh on this lens is certainly attractive.

Cute dog shot Vern! Nice work from everyone else too.

Some shots from yesterday. It was -15C and I was out with some friends, so I just snapped away. I'll try and get some better photos soon, maybe a few landscapes today.

All of these are at f/2 and processed in Lightroom 4.3 (but they looked great already so I didn't have to do much):



















This is a near 100% crop at 1600 ISO, not too bad:

Nice examples Helena. Second one looks great.
I don't like the bokeh on the first photo, but the lens does seem to have a character. I like character in a lens.
