It's my last evening at the shore after five weeks. Our place will basically be finished by tomorrow afternoon so I'm heading back, excited as hell to see it, but enjoying the last days here too. Tonight I had the Nikon gear all packed up and ready to head home tomorrow, so I just pulled out the RX1. And was reminded all over again just how much I love this little camera and why.
Two at the beach shortly before sunset, one of the sunset over the bay. Walking from beach to bay on this part of the island is less than 10 minutes...

Love them both, a bit different from the usual beach shot!Two pictures taken on a gray, cloudy day at Cape Lookout, on the Oregon coast. Both taken with the LX7....
The second shot focuses more on the wild grasses at the edge of the sand -
There's something about the quality of the images the RX1 produces which really astounds me. Not sure what it is. But these are quite fabulous, Ray....
My favorite is the first one, with the blueish/greenish tonality, and the bird incongruously flying, right in the middle of the frame.
Miguel, I feel that way pretty much every time I see an RX1 image on my computer I want to work on, and then I open it up and start working, and the adjectives start flowing. I shot with a D610 for a while (same sensor as the RX1) and own a Df (a bit worse at low ISO, a bit more than a bit better at high ISO) and there's STILL something about the RX1 files that wow me more. Part of it is the Zeiss lens, which is the best lens I've ever owned.
Yep. But they didn't just 'design' it that way....they actually got it right - so it works.And part of it is probably just how every componenet of that camera was designed to work with all of the others. It's pretty special.
BTW, nice to see my old LX7 being put to good use - particularly like that shot with the grasses in it!
