The Sony RX1 is as expensive as a full-frame SLR, yet small enough
to fit in a jacket pocket or a smallish bag or purse with ease. It
pairs one of the best full-frame sensors made to date with an
amazing lens that has few peers, yet carries a commodity
Cyber-shot label. From more than a few feet away, it looks fairly
ordinary. Maybe even quaint. Close-up and in hand, however, the
fit and finish is exquisite. It’s a study in juxtapositions.
I got to use one for an hour or so last month; it’s a remarkable camera.
