I bought it to replace my Fuji X100, its been a real joy to shoot with.

Surprisingly, I also sold my D600 sometime after getting the RX1 which does say a lot.

Bit funny quote, but it looks ok. Pretty good for Sony JPEG (still not Minolta quality, but closer).

I'm laughing because I think of a thread that was here some months ago, can't remember the title or who created it. It was funny. Someone?

i remember it was a joke inspired by all the m-monochrome hand wringing. apparently some people found it rather offensive.

With great expense comes great sensitivity.

This is a good review of the RX-1. Would be interested in some personal reviews from FM?

An early and quite strong entrant in 2013's least informative thread contest.

Tom, I suggest you post RX1 information, links etc. in the 115 page RX1 thread, located permanently on Page 1. Other kinds of people, including those interested in photography, might benefit from it being there...we can leave it at that perhaps.

my personal review:

http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/post/50968125

there are lots of personal anecdotes on "the site that must not be mentioned" and not as hostile as usual, except for a few barackers.

I recommend Sean Reid's review on "reidreviews" if you are a subscriber as the best one I have read.

in summary the RX1 needs to be handled as a professional (which I am not BTW). Particulary the colours are devastatingly neutral, so good workflow in Lightroom or other is required

Due to the closeness of the back lens element to the sensor, there is some distortion and also softness at the extreme corners when wide open.
The DR and detail is astonishing.
The controls and switches, surprisingly, are the best I have used, including Leica. The aperture ring is a dream.
