Summary: Sony made the RX1 perfect in so many ways. It is capable of making gorgeous photos, perfect colors, no need for any post processing. The camera itself is beautiful, the perfect size. I am used to manual focusing so I was willing to accept that the RX1 missed auto focus in nearly all of my photos. It chose objects with higher contrast to focus on even if they were significantly further away from what it confirmed focus on.
Good but flawed, fragile and expensive - a cash cow for Sony

Summary: I bought this camera Dec 2012, and have used it in a variety of circumstances. If I had it to over again, I would not buy it. I generally like the camera. Its small and light, and fairly efficient. It turns on quickly and captures images quickly. Its a great camera to carry daily and capture the things you would miss. The image quality is very good. For reference, I normally use/used Nikon D800, D700, D3s, Hasselblad H3d-31, H4d-40, Phaseone P65+.
Summary: I bought this camera to replace my 3 years old Panasonic GF1, a small camera that travelled with me everywhere never letting me down. The RX1 looks and feel like the "old" Leica MP, beautifully built, incredibly lens, i own few digital SLR but this one will beat all on them in term of quality, but one important aspect let me down.
Summary: Mein Kollege hat mir das gute Teil eine Woche zum testen ausgeliehen, 5 Sterne??? Die Bildqualität ist sehr ordentlich, im lowisobereich kann sie zumindestens mit der Sigma DP2 Merrill nicht mithalten was die Detailfülle angeht, im highisobereich konnte ich sie gegen meine Fuji X 1 pro testen, dort sind so gut wie keine Unterschiede festzustellen. Da ich nur in Raw fotografiere, interssieren mich der WB absolut nicht. Der Dynamikumfang ist vergleichbar mit der Fuji.
