Instead of continuing to hijack the 24-70 zoom thread, figured I'd start a new one.
Seems like there is little RX10 love here, but a few of us are pondering this as a possible solution to certain needs. For instance, in my case, while I love the A7r, sometimes it is too noisy for certain shooting environments. As an additional data point, I need to grab video from time to time as well.
So, I found a used RX1r that has been great - silent operation, beautiful files, good video. All great, right? Well, of course not - I'm cheap, but I'm not easy. Downside is no EVF - yes, I could add one but it seems a bit ungainly. Other issue is that presently I don't have anything longer than 70mm. I don't necessarily shoot long that often, but sometimes reach is a good thing. I've got an RX100ii but could part with that as while it goes to 100mm, it gets slow quickly in the zoom range. Not convinced I really need ultra-pocketability given that the RX1r is fairly compact and I could crop the FF file and get effective reach (for smaller output, web, etc).
So enter the RX10. I've read the reviews and while I agree with some of the points, not sure some of the "cons" bug me. Yes, zoom is fly by wire but I can live with that. Build quality seems good to me, AF is snappy (quicker than my A7r), EVF is usable, and is nice to have all that reach at a constant 2.8. Downside? well, it isn't a small camera but no free lunch. Mostly though is that the 1" sensor, while being a competent performer, is no match for FF. I know and expect this going in, but one gets spoiled.
So still pondering the moves. I could see selling the RX100ii and getting the RX10. Would make the most financial sense to sell the RX1r and get the RX10, but I kinda love the RX1r despite not being a swiss army knife. And who needs the knife...I'd just end up cutting myself or poking an eye out
