The fixed lens prime is a limitation for sure. I don't have a problem with a fixed lens system if it was like a 5x zoom lens or so (like the R1 for instance). That would be awesome.

Sony is open to discussing the new Full Frame RX1 Camera.


You can post questions on the Sony Camera Club on Flickr (if you're a Flickr member), on Sony's SGNL Channel on YouTube, or on Sony's Blog. Many have already gotten additional information that wasn't in the press releases and isn't on the PRE-ORDER webpages, so check it out.
