I'll say it again, why would I want this when I have a 5D3 and a 40mm pancake?

Yes it's smaller but I'd be giving up my viewfinder and the ability to change lenses.

Overall, if you drew a line between each corner it isn't much smaller either.

Will I have to use Sony's proprietry hotshoe and memory card format too?

How much is it again?  ::)

Not bad but as with Fuji, Sony most probably will introduce an interchangeable lens version in the near future (assuming all this is real and not a fantasy). However, I will stick to my 5DMkII and 35mm 1.4 L. Although bigger it's free since I already have it  ;D  (plus it accepts the rest of my Canon lenses  ;D )

I'm guessing that belief they will follow Fuji could well hold back alot of buyers.

The problem I see aswell is that if the rumours are correct and its a 24MP sensor for $2800 it doesnt really seem like great value. The D600 with exactly the same sensor and the D6 with a similar one both look likely to be alot cheaper than that so unless the Ziess lens really is an exceptional performer where is the money saved for losing alot of features?

I spose they'll probabley get a few rich novelty buyers but the price is going to need to come down alot to have a wider appeal IMHO.

Not be able to swap lenses? I'll buy it if the price around $700-$800, not $3000 price tag.

This camera is clearly aimed at rich photo enthusiasts/pros who likely already have a DSLR and would like to have a high quality compact option. If go a few posts back, you can see it's much smaller than the MK3 body.

I am not a rich guy and not a PRO.  My wife like a compact and high quality camera and zoom is not important for her.  Unfortunately, her budget is no more than 1.5K.  If this one is really good and under 2K, I could buy it for her.

Just wait a year, and the used price may be 1.5K

..or perhaps a bit longer. My first thought when I saw this is that its going to be a great used buy in 2-3 years time ala the Fuji 690 cameras with fixed lenses.

Sony must done something right to already have people comparing it directly to the 5d3 ::)

This is a compact camera which the 5d isn't. Never(!) underestimate people's will and funds to get a smaller sized camera. After 15 years of selling this stuff I can safely say that for 90% of people getting a camera size is HUGE reason (no pun intended). And people have been paying insane amount of money to get smaller products since ever.

If this will be a huge seller, I don't think, but for Sony to be the first and for us to see the tech is here is WAY more significant.

Can anyone confirm whether the Canon mirrorless EF-M mount is big enough to support a full frame sensor?

Canon EOS-M mount is not large enough for an FF-sensor. It's confirmed.  A search here will guide you to the relevant threads.

I very much doubt that Sony's E-mount is large enough for an FF sensor.

Hmm, this, or a Nikon D600 with a nice lens?

At that price I think the RX1 would need to have the D800 sensor or a really exceptional lens in order to appeal.

The sensor that sits in the D800 is a Sony sensor, so chances are that they will be very similar.

The rumour is its the 24MP sensor which looks like its going to be released for half the price in the D600.

My point was that recently other manifacturers have used fixed lens cameras as a way of offering tech to the market(X100, G1X, DP2M) at a lower price without damaging the value of there interchangle lens models.

Sony could potentially do that by either offering the RX1 with either the D600 or D800 sensor at the same price as those cameras without a good lens.

As it is they seem to be banking on the space saving alone being a big enough draw to get people to pay the same price and lose alot of features for smaller size alone.
