…feels like a toy.
…is not an extension of my hands and eyes.
…is equipped with a Zeiss lens-CMOS sensor combination that produces files that are not as sharp (or microcontrast-y) as the M9 with top Leica glass (the dpreview tests I posted last week were correct).
…is equipped with a Zeiss lens that cannot handle back-lighting as well as modern Leica lenses.
On the positive side, the RX1R:
…is lighter and smaller.
…produces nicer B&W conversions.
…has more dynamic range.
…is equipped with a Zeiss lens that produces smoother bokeh vs. the Leica 35mm Summicron (or Summilux FLE).
…is equipped with a Zeiss lens that focuses closer than the Leica lens equivalents.
These are my initial thoughts.
