When you can, post some comparison shots of the RX1 and your 5DIII  with the 24-70 f/2.8 II at 35mm.
Thanks

Very nice. My only problem (other than the cost factor) with the rx1 is it really is a little to big to be truly pocketable. Hence I'd rather just carry a dslr especially since there is no interchangeable lenses. Looking forward to seeing what you capture with it.

Impressive, historically relevant piece of kit. Why buy a Leica M9?
Read what Steve Huff (Mr Mirrorless) has to say http://www.stevehuffphoto.com/

Today I bought a mint 16-35 f/2.8II from a photographer clearing out his 5D2, lenses and 580EXII which he replaced with an RX1.
I had a play. Let me tell you, it's a very credible, superb camera.

It wouldn't work for my needs which require the versatility of a DSLR system, but still, in the right hands....

It took me 4 four trips to camera stores and played with it before I pull a trigger. As of today, I DO NOT believe there any mirrorless or P&S cameras be able to replay DSLR, in term of AF speed of course.

RX1 seems to be quite close with DSLR AF speed. IQ might even better than my 5D III - will see what this "little monster" can do ;)

Hey Dylan,
How are you finding it without a viewfinder?

Hey Dylan,
How are you finding it without a viewfinder?

Alex,
To me, the additional viewfinder will make the camera only bigger. The primary reason I bought RX1 is compact and easy travel.

Since I came from P&S, shooting through back LCD is not big problem for me. Matter of fact, I like it alot. I'm now able to shoot from lower, higher and diff angle and still be able to see the screen.

Note: I love the 41 AF points on RX1. Kinda like 61 AF points on my 5D III ;D. My wife took over 400 pictures last weekend. I'll share some pics soon.
