There is nothing like it out there in full frame

  • Summary: There is nothing like it out there in full frame. I have not used a Leica, but they cost much more and I am happy with the superb images I can get.

Best camera I own

marlon deleon, Amazon

  • Summary: Best camera I own. Being mirrorless, this is a Completely silent camera. Great for taking candid shots of people. Wonderful for street photography. I may use this camera more than my A7r. And if you do end up buying this camera, get a wood grip... A big must... Functional and beautiful.

Almost perfect.

Knife, Amazon

  • Summary: I've read all the reviews, and my experience was very similar. Pros: • Excellent image quality. I feel confident shooting in low light, without using the flash. • Great metal build. It's not heavy, but it feels sturdy in your hands. • Ninja quiet. I can shoot in a library and no one would hear the camera. Cons: • Autofocus is slow, especially in low light. This is not an action camera. • Writing RAW files to the SD card is a little slow.

User Review

  • Excerpt: The RX1 is a fabulous piece of engineering excellence. Period. I'm not going to write an a-z review of it as there are many of those out there. I would like to comment on specifics, preconceptions, thoughts, observations, etc. Size and handling: It's not that small, but it's all relative! If you're coming from DSLR background then it will feel very small, but coming from RX100's and Nex 5n it feels "chunky". Solid, hefty. Nice to use, very nice.

Sharpest Camera Lens Combination Ever

dav, Adorama
7 June 2014
  • Excerpt: I had the privilege of comparing the RX1 to the Sony A7 & A7R, Olympus OMD EM-1 and the FujiFilm X-T1. All of these cameras are wonderful but they just don't measure up to the RX1 in terms of edge to edge sharpness. The 55/1.8 on the Sony A7 comes very close but the RX1 still wins out. However, if I was just shooting portraits the A7R/A7 with the 55/1.8 is tough to beat.
  • Pros: Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Sharpness, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Limited Zoom, No Viewfinder

Incredible, though flawed

kerns, Amazon

  • Summary: It's a great camera with a mostly fantastic build quality. I won't dwell too much on the many things I love about this camera, it's been well covered in these reviews already. Suffice it to say the lens and the sensor are expertly matched. I've never had pictures that correlate so closely to my mind's eye, to my memories of scenes and events past. They say the eye sees somewhere around 45mm, but I'm almost certain the heart and mind remember everything in 35.

Sony RX1 vs Fuji X100s vs D600 + Sigma 35 f 1.4

Dmitry Shishkin, Amazon
27 May 2014
  • Summary: I will try to be very brief as there are tons of detailed reviews on Amazon as well as extended online discussions. I have read them all and still was not sure until I saw a refurbished Sony RX1 at 70% of the original price. That was too tempting and I decided to give it a try. What can I say after taking a few dozens of comparative shots with RX1 and x100s? Yes, IQ (Image quality) of pictures taken by RX1 sometimes looked a bit better than what I have gotten with x100s.

Great camera

Kgsmith, Amazon
21 May 2014
  • Summary: I like leaf shutters. This one is very quiet and is welcome for taking pictures in harsh light using flash to produce acceptable results. I had been using a Fuji x100s and xPro1 but was disappointed with some of the images. This camera takes much better pictures for me. A RRS grip and base plate improve the handling and sticky filters help with white balancing the flash. I especially like the pictures that it takes of people, flowers and sunsets.

My go to camera

JCM in Berkeley, B&H Photo
15 May 2014
  • Excerpt: The sharpness and overall image quality of this camera are astounding - better than my other much more expensive cameras . Because of that it's the camera that I carry with me and use whenever possible. It's great for travel and landscapes. That said, it's useless for wildlife photography which demands long focal length lenses.
