| p.1 #19 · Sony RX-1 Review Luminous Landscape |
The article seems bent on justifying the price, and Sony features (like the Auto ISO implementation). The sample pictures aren't anything special, and there isn't much talk about the negatives that have been brought up by other users.
i for one am very happy to know that you can set the bounds on the iso, and very sad to know that you can't set min shutter speed. it's nice to know how different people feel about the handling as well. i would never expect MR to provide terribly useful shots for judging the minutia of image quality. he seems to have given up on that long ago, probably for the best.
That ISO2500 100% crop result is poor. I have ISO1600 shots from my old NX200 and 30/2 that are better. I'm a huge fan of full frame, but I see little full frame magic in the RX1. There are plenty of Zeiss and Leica 35 focal length pictures (viewed at internet sizes) taken with Canon, Nikon, or Leica FF bodies that do WOW me.
You can't compare images that aren't in the same light. My M9 at ISO 1600 in bright daylight is cleaner than a D3s is at ISO 1600 in a cave.
