A Dangerous Camera For Sale - Beware...
Please do not look at the camera. It will not be good for you. You will be unhappy.
What? What kind of a sales pitch is this?
It is the old reverse double hook with the half gainer. In reality the camera is good. Very very good. And people who use it regularly will regularly be rewarded with images that are of the highest quality - I mean nearly medium-format quality...and this in a compact camera.
It is the combination of a Zeiss Sonnar 35mm f:2 lens and the FULL FRAME Sony sensor that does it. The whole combined in a metal camera body of the most precise construction. This is a potent camera - works in low light, has no visible distortion, shoots fast. It is the sort of camera that sees the world as it is, and shows it.
The hot shoe has space for a Zeiss finder - an additional dangerous purchase. You look in the finder, you push the button, that is it.
The real danger is when you compare the files from this camera with the ones that your own camera takes. I did that and now have a residual dissatisfaction with my current setup. The detail and fidelity of the Sony RX1R is just that good. If you don't need a zoom lens for your subject, this is the photographic answer.
Price? Commensurate with the danger...
