A couple of first impressions reviews from photographers participating in last week\'s Sony event:


That site still hasn\'t enabled my new user submission so I can ask them about the camera being unforgiving, but in the short article the author touches on that:

Even though the lens is super sharp even at f/2.0 and the bokeh is creamy delicious, the depth-of-field is wicked shallow so you’d best stop down a bit if you want anything to be in focus. If you’re primarily an APS-C shooter like me, the shallow full-frame depth-of-field takes a little getting used to and you’re likely to end up with a whole bunch of images that should have been stopped down a couple of stops. Actually, one of the most important things you need to know about the RX1 is that it’s extremely unforgiving – especially if you’re shooting JPEGs. The sharpness, shallow depth-of-field and highlight clipping are vicious. The sharpness and depth-of-field are a two edged sword because they’re also part of what makes the RX1 a great camera. Make sure you use them wisely.

Thank you- of course the issue with the shallow DOF is just lack of experience, but it will be interesting if the issue=highlight clipping is because of not so fine exposure \"in camera\" or it has something to do with the lack of 1/8000 sec. ?


JPEG only samples are getting tedious. I wonder when ACR / Lightroom might get updated to include raw support for the RX1?
