Who else if not Sony? If it were all up to Canon and Nikon, we, our children and our grandchildren would be shooting with a big traditional SLR till the end of the time. And beyond. But Sony has hired several out-of-the-box thinking Japanese engineers with fresh ideas: “Let’s use semi-transparent mirror! Let’s stuff APS-C in smallest possible NEX body! Let’s use 1″ sensor in ultra-compact! And finally, how about a full frame compact with a nice Zeiss F/2 prime lens?” And so we have it. DSC-RX1 hit the shelves this month and it’s different from anything we’ve seen before.
