| p.1 #16 · Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1R Full Frame with no AA filter |
I'm actually a little disappointed by this, since I've been eyeing an RXsomething, but I'm mainly holding out for near-DSLR class AF, followed by a more distant desire for next-gen FF resolutions (36MP). If I get an RX, it'll be a replacement, for paid PJ work, for my 5D2-- AF is critical. I could go the rest of my life with only 35mm equiv.
But the RX1R seems to me as an attempt to keep sales fresh without actually moving towards better AF and higher true resolutions. It'll only extend the product update cycle, I fear, without providing much in the way of an actual update (and perhaps increasing margins by keeping prices high while lowering costs).
