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. The bulky Nikon got left at home too often, and the image quality of my 4/3 files were often not good enough for me or my publisher/agency.The Sony that first drew my attention was the A7R (intrigued that it could mount my Leica lenses), but one minute holding...
Pros: Easy to Use, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Small / Compact
Excerpt: I love this camera. I can't say enough good things about it. The IQ is absolutely stunning. The build quality is excellent and the lens is perhaps one of the best 35mm lenses ever made. Would highly recommend it . Only cons are focus peeking isn't available unless using zoom preview (unlike on RX100) and the price.
Pros: Good in Low Light, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Excerpt: The "London Museums and Cultural Heritage" class has just returned to the States from an unforgettable week in the UK: the main reason it will be unforgettable is due to the extraordinary photographs made by the RX1R. This camera is an upgrade to our Museum equipment from the similar RX-100 which is, in itself, an amazing tool that I have used since 2012.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Excerpt: I'm a semi-pro fine art photographer with extensive experience using a Nikon D3s, D4 and D800e – just to name a few. Took the plunge on a new Sony RX1R for my street and travel work. It's like owning a Leica M240 with 35mm F/1.4 Summilux lens, but at a fraction of the expense (so long as you're fine using a slightly slower fixed prime). The lens optics and quality are simply stunning (tack-sharp wide open) - as is the camera body fit and finish.
Pros: Beautiful Bokeh, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
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. But what makes this camera a great product, is the lens. The lens is a piece from heaven .. extremely sharp even at F2.0! It speaks luxury .. with the aperture control ring and the smooth focusing ring!
Pros: Easy to Use, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
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
Excerpt: What an extraordinary piece of equipment.This small camera shoots super-sharp images. The full-frame sensor in a camera of that size is a technological masterpiece. Top-notch, super handy, extremely fast and precise. Took it for a trip across the States and every shot was a hit. Highly recommend this camera. Worth every dollar of the $.The only disadvantage is that all the accessories are quite pricy as well but definitely worth it.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Battery Life, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Small / Compact
Excerpt: I used to own a combo of 5D mark III + 85mm 1.2 and later 50mm 1.2 but I'm not a pro photog. There's just a certain IQ that I want from my images = FF and big aperture gives me that. But I got tired of lugging around a big camera & lens combo, so I wanted to get the RX100 II instead. Upon reading numerous reviews, it brought me to RX1r reviews. I had to pull all the strings just so I could buy this little monster. And I am so happy with it.
Excerpt: Not the fastest beast you can find, but apart from that, awesome camera. You get a Leica level lens for half the price, and the camera body is a gift... Some people think it's an expensive proposition, I think the opposite. If a 35mm is your field of view, then this a marriage made in haven. The Zeiss is extremely sharp across the board from 2.8 on, sensor is fantastic, RAW files are as good as it gets. EVF also the best.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good in Low Light, Small / Compact
