I would suggest if the X100s from Fuji wipes out most of the quirks from the first model, then it would be a much more affordable and sensible purchase, granted it's APS-C but hey they at least know what people want.
With or without viewfinder, it will be a big seller -not a mass product a la Canon Rebel.bfitzgerald wrote:Pako I see the RX-1 as more a "flagship concept" than a model that is likely to be a big seller.
But it has to be said the target market is serious photographers no question, so it's pretty unforgivable to omit a viewfinder in this model, this is at odds with the buyer who most likely will want one. (and they could do a decent one too)
The X100s does not compete with the RX1, but with the NEX6. The RX1 is unique. And I find hard to believe it will have competition any soon -look how long took to Canon to bring the EOS M camera!bfitzgerald wrote:The X100s looks interesting, for an APS-C model it's heaps cheaper than the Sony..fast forward 10 months or so usual Fuji price drops it's a heck of a lot more affordable than the Sony is. I'm sure the IQ on the Sony is great but let's be honest very few would outlay that for a camera with a fixed lens. It's more a FF compact concept than a serious attempt IMO to capture any kind of FF compact market (which is about as niche as you can get)
