After what seems like an eternity, the Zeiss ZX1 Android-powered camera is now official and ready to ship. I'm intrigued about how this camera is going to be received in upcoming reviews. It seems to be competing with the Leica Q2, though it costs $1000 more than its German competitor.
- High-performance 35 mm f/2 ZEISS Distagon lens
- Full-frame 37.4 MP CMOS sensor
- High-resolution OLED EVF
- Integrated Adobe Photoshop Lightroom
- Intuitive, multi-touch navigation
- Large and crisp display
- Seamless connectivity
- Versatile USB-C drive
- Huge built-in 512 GB SSD
It will be hard to compete with a Q2, Partly due to Leica's presence as a shop front in high income/premium brand areas.
There's some interesting features in there, but is the market who want to edit and share photos in camera, the same that wants to spend US $6k on a camera.
I definitely feel that the market would respond well to pocketable, all in one, FF camera. Imagine a digital Contax T2, or even Olympus XA or MJU ii!
