Love this camera

  • Excerpt: My other cameras are a Nikon 800e, a Nikon 810, and an Olympus OMD E M1. I have a gaggle of top of the line expensive lenses for them. Unless I'm shooting wildlife and need a long length lens, I find myself reaching for the Sony RX!R every time. The reason: the image quality is better.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Great Resolution, Small / Compact

Nearly perfect at what it does

  • Excerpt: This camera really filled a need. I was a long-time Leica guy but just could not fall in love with their digital M models. So I spent a few years using a combination of a top-end Nikon SLR and a compact 4/3 system.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Limited Zoom, No Viewfinder

A piece of Art!

27 January 2014
  • Excerpt: I just love this camera. I ordered it to join my Sony A7, but I have to say that this outperforms the A7 in so many ways. The picture quality is awesome .. not having the AA filter makes a difference but not very noticeable if you're comparing it with the A7.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
  • Cons: No Viewfinder, Short Battery Life

ALMOST perfect

Weihan, B&H Photo
25 January 2014
  • Excerpt: THE single biggest drawback to the RX1R is the lack of a built-in EVF! Under normal intense daylight conditions in Los Angeles, conventional LCDs are often essentially useless. The optional EVF sits uncomfortably in the hot shoe, just waiting to be broken off.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Fantastic Image Quality, Fast Shutter Speed, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution
  • Cons: No Built-In EVF
