Sony RX1R: Essay on Its Gestalt Especially vs the Leica M Typ 240
Sony RX1R, Leica M Typ 240
My review of the Sony RX1R is far from done, but at this juncture I felt it important to capture key Sony RX1R sentiments I developed during extensive field usage. It is an extensive essay covering those points I felt most strongly about, intentionally leaving out some aspects for a focused clarity on how the two cameras felt to me in the field.
And so I urge any prospective or current Leica M shooter to read the Sony RX1R Conclusions essay: I own the Leica M Typ 240 and many of the M lenses already, and the comparison was to me eye opening in the field. Obviously the M240 can use many different lenses, but it is also true that a fixed lens camera has a compelling appeal too.
* Comments ought to apply equally to the Sony RX1, though I prefer the RX1R, which lacks an anti-aliasing filter for higher micro contrast on fine details.
