This review is from: Sony DSC-RX1/B Cyber-shot Full-frame Digital Camera (Electronics)
I just finished shooting with this camera this past weekend in asia. The image quality of JPEGs is amazing. I have not used RAW yet. My usual system is a Canon 5d III and I can say that the quality is very comparable. In fact, I prefer the 35 mm on the RX-1 to Canon's 35 1.4L. It has a bit of magic like the 851.2 L II and the 50 1.2L. The last time I tried to use a small camera like this was Fuji's x100 which I loved except for the quirks (and ultimately sold that camera). The RX-1 is a keeper although I will be hoping for sony to incorporate an EVF with the next generation of this camera.
I use a Zacuto z-finder with my 5dIII - big and clunky. The Sony EVF will be a welcome change for video and manual focus. I'll update this post when my EVF arrives.
Update: The finder is adequate but it is really unfortunate that this camera does not come with a built in finder. The finder sits awkwardly on top and feels fragile unlike the rest of the camera.
