Next RX1 might have:
- Curved sensor for better sharpness across the frame, less complicated optic that doesn't need curvature correction (or not as much . . ), maybe even a faster lens as a result.
- A Few More MP (though 42.5 is enough for most)
- Better EVF
- Upgraded video (4K)
- etc.

There's a lot that they could do for the next model to entice folks to upgrade.


It would be interesting if Sony did in such a camera stuff that's currently not feasible in an interchangeable lens camera. That certainly would get my attention.

You forgot to mention better battery life and some sort of grip. Both could be accommodated together in slightly wider (but not taller) form. Faster, more reliable af, better eye af, and separate buttons for each, or a well implemented touch screen with snap focus. There is much that can be improved ergonomically, without blowing up the size. Let's hop they do it.

With a curved sensor, they could perhaps design the lens to be even smaller and better corrected or keep similar size but at f/1.4! Would that change your mind?


If they could make an f/1.4 or faster lens that is the same size as the current f/2 on the RX1R II, I would have to seriously consider it. That would be madness (a good madness).

I hate to say it because it will never come to pass. I love my RX1Rii, but I'm really more of a 50mm shooter than a 32. My dream camera is an RX1 with a 40-50mm lens.

I am okay with form factor. Allowing for nostalgia, my first real film camera was an Olympus OM-1 with a 50mm 1.2 lens. If the new sensor hypothetically enables a smaller lens, If possible, I would ask Sony to really crush it with a 1.2. I am however not too greedy, I could live with 1.4.

I would love if Sony would kinda "revamp" the RX1. The batteries are too tiny.

So my list would be:
-Increase the size a bit in all areas
-(to)Add a grip to it (*gasp*) that would be no longer than the lens
-(so)Inside that grip add the new A9/A7rIII battery
-(and)some IBIS could fit in
-(and)Make EVF not pop-out (too flimsy outside). Make it a6300 style
-Instead of macro capabilities add a tri-elmar style lens 21-28-35 or 28-35-40
-Bring new sensor/image pipeline improvements from A7rIII
-Improve fly-by-wire AF or replace it with MF-like coupling

I would be satisfied with minor improvements like 4k(5min is fine), ibis, and weatherproofing. besides, that i think the rx1rii covers the rest for me. I like to keep it as small as possible otherwise it crosses over to my a7rii+35mm2.8 territory

The stepped zoom sounds very interesting, but concerned we might never get 3, which mean we won’t be able to fret over its deficiencies wanting a 4!

An RX1 in say an a6XXX style body with small grip, corner EVF, and even the FW50 batteries would be nice. Or bring back the old NEX-7, keep the lens aperture ring and have the two dials on top control ISO/SS.

Nah. Sony needs a compact A6 body. Basically stick a FF sensor in an a6xxx body and keep the price point low.
