---------------------------------------------

I use Leica and Sony cameras and the Leica Fotos app is vastly superior to Sonyís Imaging Edge: Fotos connects quickly and easily to the camera, maintains a more stable and reliable connection, and allows one to transfer DNGs as well as JPEGs. Imaging Edge is a pathetic joke by comparison.


This whole topic is kind of boggling...that Sony can't (or doesn't feel the need to) make Imaging Edge better blows my mind. It just feels like such an easy way to make a camera 'connected' and modernize it. Sigh.

EDIT: and that Leica does with the most classic throw back camera available is awesome. Just wish I could afford the new M11...looks brilliant. My last foray into Leica was 20 years ago when I bought a used M6 TTL that I foolishly sold as the world went digital. That decision has not aged well hahaha

On other topics here, Zeiss was never in a hurry on anything or desperately trying to seek market leadership. Iím sure one day they will come with lenses for the new mirror less mounts.

Brilliant Yup, the Zx1 is a skunk works project. Boy, I hope someone at Zeiss reads that comment


Skunk work projects by definition do not see commercialization. The whole point of skunk works projects is to let your R & D team work free of the commercial business. It is simply laughable that someone thinks the ZX1 was produced for R & D results. What a joke.

I'll put this out there and say the Pixii M mount rangefinder camera is selling better than the Zeiss ZX1. Then again, that bar is low.

(no evidence apart from seeing the wait times change whenever I think about ordering one etc. I am not concerned with details... ;P )

Gah, I would really like to try this camera actually. I know there are some weird things about it, overpriced, etc, but I love the design of it and am really curious to see how the lens / sensor rendors.

B&H has a 9 for $3999.95, and 9+ for $4196.50. Assuming they don't reuse the B&H #'s on their used merchandise, they've had them for at least a year now.

Man, seeing this thread keep popping up just makes me sad. Probably the most disappointed I've ever been in a product honestlyóespecially since we already multiple cameras near enough to perfection in this category. Design is good, lens looks great from what few samples we've seen... but just a mess.

I suppose in 3-5 years we'll get the Q3.

What is equally interesting is the fact that even those who have heaped praise on pretty much every product with the blue badge on it including the ZX1, apparently haven't had the stomach to buy one .

The issue for me is that Zeiss may cancel the project entirely and stop updating the camera. It looks like with all the software inside, this camera would need constant firmware updates.

Why doesnt someone buy this joke of a camera from B&H, shoot it for a bit, and then return it? If the camera is a piece of trash, which it most certainly is, then it's a legit return.

Since the ZX1 provides a textbook illustration of the adage ďa fool and his money are soon partedĒ, itís difficult to feel sorry for anyone who was naive enough to waste $6000 on this piece of rubbish, particularly since the warning signs were obvious from the very beginning. Happily it does appear that the number of ZX1 buyers is relatively small and, when firmware updates are abandoned, perhaps they could receive as compensation one of the superb Zeiss mirrorless lenses that have been released in the past couple of years for Canon RF, Nikon Z, and Sony FE mounts.

I personally am most disappointed we donít get to see this lens in actual usage, especially as Zeiss has quit the camera consumer lens game. I love Zeiss glass, especially their 35mmís. And this is the rare sensor + fixed lens combo.

Still bummed we never got an RX1r3

Maybe I've missed it but I haven't seen anything interesting from Zeiss (for Sony E) since the Loxia 25, which is quite a while ago now. They seem instead to be focusing on high $$$ cine and industrial lenses now and appear to have abandoned 'regular' shooters. My suspicion is that it's because they no longer have the IQ advantage they once had over the competition.

And yes, this camera is pure marketing nonsense that was DOA. They seem to have jumped the shark with this one.
