As with the original RX1, the Leica Q is considerably larger and heavier. Not to say it's big, but the RX1 is kind of a marvel of miniaturization. Too small for some people, but I was OK with it out of the box, and even better with one of the fotodiox grips, which didn't add much bulk. Also, the Leica is more to my liking at 28mm, but the RX1 lens is marketed as 35mm, but is actually closer to 31.5 or 32mm, so I actually got along with it really well - better than any other 35 I've used. And I LOVE the rendering of that lens - as nice as anything I've ever shot with and nicer than anything except my Zeiss 21mm, which is pretty much the same level, but different...It's full-frame like the Leica Q, but look at the measurements:
Sony: 113.3 x 65.4 x 72 mm -- 533.5 cc's.
Leica: 130 x 80 x 85 mm --- 884 cc's.
Edit: Sony lens == 35 mm FL(?).
Leica Q == 28 mm FL
I tend to agree. I'm keeping an open mind about the EVF - there's some indication it's a good deal larger and better than the pop-up in the RX100 models. If it's as good or better as the removable EVF from the original RX1, I'd probably just stick the eye-cup on it and leave it open almost all the time, similar to the way I left the EVF on the first model pretty much all the time.i think people are overestimating the joy they will get out of using what appears to be a small and kinda flimsy evf, and at the same time vastly underestimating what a PITA it will be to download 42mp images. these surely will not matter to some, but i think they will end up mattering to a lot more. if nothing else, this camera will be very instructive on the marketability and useability and necessity of a 42mp camera.
