I have been using this for a couple of months now and I am seriously in love with this camera. It cost a lot, but the images it pumps out beautiful and brilliant. You can check out some of my (very amateur!) photos at kathmandustories.com. Believe me, in your hands I am sure it would do better!

In my experience this is a product that will improve your photography over time. I think as you get used to the fixed focal length this makes you focus your mind on what you want to shoot and how you want to capture it or portray it. I'm beginning to see in 35mm, if that makes sense. That said, a couple of times I would have preferred a wider angle or telephoto lens and this quality of image. But to get that would mean carrying a 1kg camera and a 1kg lens. This weighs 440g, and fits in a baggy pocket or simply hangs on a wrist strap with the lens cap off, waiting to snap a candid street shot. This really is DSLR quality in a small and light package - well worth investing in if that is what you are looking for.

The camera is solid and very well-made, as you'd expect for the price. The aperture ring on the lens works nicely, its really intuitive, and I spend most of my time living in aperture priority mode. I really like the look of pictures taken at f2-4, the background blur adds character and gives the pictures an almost 3D pop. Close ups sing with detail. Sometimes though, the focus misses, which is a real pain when it happens at a decisive moment. Shooting in raw and post-processing in Apple Aperture opens up huge creative options, and lets you rescue photos you thought were flops: the sensor captures a breathtaking dynamic range, at least in comparison with my previous camera (the Sony Nex5, itself a fine machine).

You certainly won't be disappointed with the image quality from this camera. It is jaw dropping. The Dynamic range available in RAW files is astonishing. The sharpness and contrast of the lens is up there with Leica lenses.
The build quality is excellent. It is quite hefty but built like a tank.
The AF speed is a little slow but it's ok. If you have ever used a Fuji X100 I would say it is similar in speed to that.
I really wish they had made it with a built in viewfinder. I bought the EVF separately as I consider it essential for me but the price of that and the other accessories is way over the top. This is why it gets a 4 star rating from me.
The price of the camera itself is expensive but when you consider what you would have to pay for a lens of this quality on a full frame body then it looks very reasonable.

This is an amazing camera - the lens and the sensor go together very well. Whilst the lens is 35mm, you can use the settings to make it 50mm which effectively means that you could get away with this as an all rounder - as long as you have the temperament for framing your pics and with those 24mp you can also crop very effectively too. The trade off in switchable lens for portability and quality has been so worth it for me. I'm now using this as my sole camera and it takes astounding pictures. The movie quality is good, perhaps not great with autofocus in low light - it does however greatly benefit from that lens and the neat feature of adjusting the shutter speed to give slower movement and a movie quality feel - check some examples on you tube or Stephen Huff's review.

£2500 rrp seems to be a steep price, but for what your getting I think it's ok - theres a full sensor in there and its portable with an amazing lens.
What I don't understand is how Amazon can be showing a price of over £3K - way higher than the rrp - that clearly is not value for money.

My review is to point out just how expensive Amazon are selling it for. Or not selling it as is probably the case at that price.

Got one of these cameras recently- the first version RX1 and its brilliant. The bokeh even with the digital zoom on 2x is equivalent to my canon 5D mark iii with a 70mm f2.8 but way more compact. I can just fit it in my pocket and its easy to forget its there so comfortable enough. Its like taking a full frame camera around with you but so compact. The auto features make it even better than the 5D. The only problems was the auto white balance indoors was a bit off but easy to fix with the tweaker it has. Also the video does have the moire problem so the filter it has obviously is not that strong enough. But photos are fantastic. The newer version does not impress that much as it doesn't come with 4K video and loses a flash to the viewfinder. It feels a bit weird putting your face up to a small camera like this for a viewfinder. Hopefully, the version 3 or a firmware update will have 4K.
