Yes but there are a few issues I have with the RX-1 as a street shooter:
1. It is expensive. $2800 + $450 for the EVF.
The OVF is what you need for street work, at least in my experience.
I have a Fuji X-Pro1 and an XE-1. The XE-1 EVF lags a bit too much for my liking.
I'm sure the RX-1 is no better in this regard.
I've read the A99 has the same issues.
2. The OVF is $650 and it just an glass element. There is no camera data shown (unlike the Fuji's).
3. There are reports that it's AF is not that fast (again a problem that plagues the existing Fuji's too, but this can make street work harder).
The X100s "should" be a lot faster.
The X-Trans 1 sensor is already pretty damn good (as good as M9 most people agree), so if they have improved IQ 25%, then I think it's going to be up there with the best.
I've never shot a Leica M9 but I like the images produced by my Fuji's much better than anything I can get out of my 5D MK3.
The X100s is looking on paper to be a very capable street shooter...
I'm sure the X-Pro 2 is going to be very similar.
After EOS 1DX's trashing of D4 and 5D Mark III's victory over D800, will 6D destroy D600 for a complete FF sweep?
Hmm. I had to chuckle when I read this.
When the actual (not rumored) DxO scores for the 1DX came out, it turned out that the D4 has a better sensor after all.
Both the D800 and D600 have better sensors than the 5DIII as well.
So, not seeing how Canon is trashing Nikon. It's actually the opposite.
Also, the quarterly results for the last quarter show that Nikon's sales are up, while Canon's sales are down.
Again, how is Canon trashing Nikon when Nikon is gaining market share and Canon is losing???
I'm a Canon shooter, who has spent thousands of $$$ on Canon gear.
I find Canon's recent products very disappointing, since they are either underspec'd or overpriced ... or both.
So, at this time I'm actually very glad that Nikon is trashing Canon.
Maybe someone at Canon's headquarters will finally take notice.
