p.6 #1 · p.6 #1 · RX1 bokeh vs other cams/lens at F/2.0


FWIW, my comparison of the RX1 against the two Zeiss ZM 35s on the M9, with the CV35/1.2 v2 thrown in as well (didn't have access to any Leica M 35mm lenses during the time I had the RX1 on loan).

Most experienced users of the now six months old RX1 are close to over the moon about its bokeh qualities. I am especially happy with foreground bokeh and detail retention in focus fade.

To get similar sensor inputs you need a

I suspect you mean the D600, which shares the same basic silicon as the RX1's sensor, rather than the D800 which has a similar-tech but higher-density sensor most closely related to the 16MP APS-C unit that is so well loved.
