Some of you are aware of my penchant for HQ fixed lens compacts. Hence a RX1/r is on my shopping list. I also am considering an A7 or A7II (not the R) combined with the Loxia 35mm/f2.
This comparison has obvious similarities and I think is valid. Both have Sony Sensors, both Zeiss lenses, both 24 Mpixels, both are 35mm/f2 (which suits me).
I worked with 40mm in 35mm film on an OM4 for many years and am very familiar to the DOF characteristics of "full frame" 35mm and would like to get back to full frame from APS-C for this reason. I am not looking for out and out resolution at my intended print sizes.
My head says A7+Loxia my heart says RX1. I am seduced by the RX1 size.
So apart from size and the AF/MF difference I am interested to hear of views regarding the IQ nuances of the images comparing each of these camera lens combos?
Thank you in advance.
