Excerpt: Owners have complained that the big buck viewfinder, which does not have a locking device to keep it on the camera shoe, could work lose while on a shoot. Well maybe unlikely, but still another thing to worry about. I now place a patch of electrician's tape, cut 3/4 X 3/4 inch, across the back of the viewfinder, over the shoe joint and onto the camera body.
Excerpt: Comparing with OM-D, X-M, Leica M9, Leica X2, X-Vario and Nikon A, this camera has perfect balanced design and quality of picture. Not big and not small, perfect finishing and quality of picture. Very good decision is charge in camera system, you do not need have with you separate charger unit. I-manual is also very convenient when you have to find some info very fast. I have no found any deficiencies. Autofocus system is not so fast as OM-D, but speed is good enough.
Excerpt: I believe most of the reviewers are right about this camera: it takes mind blowing photos. It has enormous dynamic range and superb low light performance. The sensor and lens combine to produce laser sharp images. The built in flash works much better than any other Sony flash I have used and it also works very well with bigger Sony flashes using an adapter. Macro mode is a joy. Easy to get into and out of. Outstanding bokeh.
Summary: If you are looking at this camera, you already know what it is not - 1.There is no viewfinder 2.You cannot change lenses 3.It is not exactly pocketable due to the size of the lens 4.You cannot tilt the flash like you can of Sony RX100 5.Lightroom 4 does not support the raw format of RX1R though it does of RX1, you need to pay extra 57 pounds to get version 5. 6.It is expensive Now that this lack of features is out of the way, the image quality in one word is superb.
