If you are looking at this camera, you already know what it is not -
1.There is no viewfinder
2.You cannot change lenses
3.It is not exactly pocketable due to the size of the lens
4.You cannot tilt the flash like you can of Sony RX100
5.Lightroom 4 does not support the raw format of RX1R though it does of RX1, you need to pay extra 57 pounds to get version 5.
6.It is expensive

Now that this lack of features is out of the way, the image quality in one word is superb. The skin tones are wonderfully neutral and accurate.
Buttery bokeh, sharp, great contrast, lovely colours as you can see from the pictures that I have posted here.
It focuses fast enough, I never had any issues focussing, unless it was really dark; agreed it is never as fast as olympus micro 4/3.

It is light enough to carry everywhere inspite of being a full-frame. Recently on a trip to Paris, I wondered how I would have coped with a bigger full-frame camera when climbing the steps of Notre Dame.
I was glad I was carrying RX1R.

The pictures do require some bit of processing to make them look at their best. You will be rewarded if you do some basic processing.
I had Fuji X100 before and that comes nowhere close to this, bearing in mind the cost difference, full-frame, APS etc.

If money and angle of view is no issue, please get this. You won't be disappointed.
If you need more reach, you could always buy a cheap m 4/3 body and olympus 45mm or the upcoming panny 42.5 1.2 in addition to RX1R.

Any questions, do let me know.

SMALLER THAN IT LOOKS.
======================
It can sit on your palm quite easily. However with the lens it's not suitable to go in a normal sized pocket. I used the leather case Sony LCJ RXB Soft Carry Case for RX1 Camera to transport this beautiful piece of photographic equipment.

QUALITY
=======
The RX1R's photos are sharp whilst detailed. Full frame quality in a small package. Colours were vibrant and accurate.

SPEED
=====
I have to confess that this disappointed me a tiny bit. The focusing was quick but not super fast. I wanted super fast. I need super fast. What I got was simply quick. But there was no lag elsewhere. Quick, responsive and ready for action almost instantly.

QUALITY
=======
The 24 megapixel sensor gives excellent results ranging from ISO 50-3200, a little 'noise' when the setting was at 6400 and 12800. Low light was not a problem and the photos taken at dusk or late at night were particularly good.

ACCESSORIES
===========
The case for the RX1R is the price of many digital slr cameras. I spent £150. Then a further £300 for the viewfinder. Sony EV1MK Electronic Viewfinder for RX1 Camera Expensive. Very expensive. But essential.

INTUITIVE
=========
I found I had mastered the main features within a day.

RECOMMENDED
===========
Yes! The RX1R is THE compact camera like no other. Full-frame 35mm image quality in a palm sized beauty. I've had this for a fortnight and these are my first impressions. I'll probably update the review after six months use.

I bought this as I wanted a more compact camera to my current Nikon DSLR for my graphic design and portrait work and after lots of research, chose this Sony. I found my DSLR camera too big and cumbersome so this camera seemed a perfect alternative but still of professional quality.

I have now used it for everything such as landscapes, portraits and still life and the image quality is ***unbelievably good***. While the cost was quite high, this is fully justified with the image quality and functionality. I have not been disappointed at all, I could not have expected something so good from a non-DSLR camera.

The depth of colour in the images is fantastic, exceptionally real, and with amazing contrast, something I expected from the Zeiss lens. It is the sharpness that struck me and when I compared with my DSLR camera, the images were clearly better.

Some points where it could improve:
- Ergonomically, it is less enjoyable to hold than other bridge cameras
- Focusing is great, but takes a while to get used to, give yourself a little time to work this out (it took me a few days)
- Cost was high, but you get what you pay for!

Overall:

- As compact cameras go, this in my opinion is the best on the market. I would never go back to my DSLR camera because this camera has everything that I need.

I knocked off a star for the cost of the EVF, which is essential in bright light i.e. focusing on a sunny day at f2 with a ND filter.

Still learning how to get the best out it but bearing in mind it's a full frame and the lens alone is probably an £800 Zeiss on it's own, this is a great value camera if you shop around, compared to any DSLR.

Buy some extra batteries and maybe an external charger. Video is not worth bothering with, which is a real shame, but it's a stills camera first that rivals Leica, without question.
