I am trying very hard to move from full frame cameras to the smaller form camera. It seems to be much less intrusive, easy to carry and to keep at hand.
I found that since I got the RX 1, I do not use the 5D2.
I tried the Merril cameras but found their colour rendition terrible, especially since I am Indian and these sensors do not handle our skin tones well at all.
I loved seeing what Helena is doing with the RX 1 and when she started with the Fujifilm XE-1 and posted wonderful photos, I thought it was worth a go. I took both cameras out on a wonderful winter’s solstice day in Trentham. Excellent light and glorious colours. I liked what the XE-1 did, but it really cannot compare with the magic of the Sony.
I posted some comparable photos on the XE-1 thread, these are all straight out of camera jpgs, no lightroom or other corrections. The XE-1 does it’s own thing with putting a film like colour to the images, but these are Sony RX 1 jpgs. The full size images are on Flickr.
I will definitely be getting the next Sony RX camera with a different focal length, I don't see why they would remove the AA filter, the images are super sharp to start with.
