Re: Sony RX1 FF Mirrorless (fixed lens)


I've come to the conclusion that the best camera I want to own has to be the smallest, small enough to come with me everywhere.

I'm strong and fit enough to carry a 40 pound pack full of medium format gear (did this for years) but I don't really enjoy lugging the stuff around nor the process of stopping, unpacking, setting up, shooting, repacking, and moving on. Yes, I'd sometimes wander with body and a wide angle lens in my hand. Good for arm muscle tone.

My tastes in what and when I like to shoot have changed markedly over the years although I still prefer 28 - 35mm focal lengths on 135 format. What hasn't changed is that I still want to have at my fingertips the potential for very high quality results, but I don't want it to require a backpack or roller case full of equipment.

Instead of upgrading my DSLR to the latest and greatest decided to hop aboard the compact camera train and man am I ever glad I did that. Since then I've also learned that I don't have to replicate every focal length and perspective I have on my other system, so I'm keen on the RX1 (kinda wish Ricoh made it though) and welcome the opportunity to further simplify and rationalize my small gear.
