I've just sold my Nikon D750 to buy a Sony A7 or an RX1, but I just can't decide!
I keep looking at Leica/Voigtlander/Zeiss glass and it's swaying me to the A7.
But the size and quality of the RX1 is so good!
What do you miss about the RX1 and are you happy with the A7 compared to the RX1?
I went with the A7II in the end, i'll have it next week.Steve,
I can honestly say that both have their own unique strengths or benefits when it came to my personal use. The RX1's main perk for me was size (while being a FF), followed by that amazing 35mm f2 lens mated to it. The files were great, and it was very convenient to carry around with a few batteries.
In the end, I only parted with the RX1 as I wanted to further explore more compact setups as I had some other Fuji's in the roughly the same size footprint.
Now, I am very happy with the A7II as the stabilization and ability to mount Canon glass are both amazing Perls IMHO. I love that I can run my old manual FD lenses with ease, and in camera stabilization. For me, the A7II tops the RX1 but it is a larger setup and I feel like it is hard to truly compare them based on that aspect really turning them into two different beasts.
I love the A7II with my 17-40mm f4 L mounted, but it's pretty large compared to what the RX1 would be in comparison.
I don't really think you can make a bad choice between the two. If you don't feel the need to run anything outside of 35mm, the RX1 would be a hell of a way to go.
Man, missing a deal on an RX1R II wound make me pretty sad. That would be my ideal travel camera.I went with the A7II in the end, i'll have it next week.
I did miss an RX1R II for £1750 on eBay, high feedback seller too. I was a tad gutted about that one!
I do like the 35mm focal length, my 35mm was on my D750 80% of the time.
Gonna stick to manual focus lenses for a bit.
I want fast glass! (Doesn't everyone?)
I'm looking at the Voigtlander 40mm f1.4 and the Voigtlander Nokton 50mm f1.1 and about 100 others!!
