    Re: Rx1r2

    I finally got around to trimming a RX1 L plate with grip to fit the RX1R II.

    I felft bad doing it as it is a precision CNC machined anodized aluminum. Well, the upside is that it was only 20 (shipped from China).

    Now, I have better stability for hand holding and alsopossibility for ground level close ups without scratching the camera's bottom.

    RRS just started taking pre-orders on the plate & grip for the RX1r ii. It was what made the camera fit for me when I had the RX1r.

    That is good news for those in the US.

    Re: Rx1r2

    I just returned from an exhausting tour of Rajasthan in India. I took the Rx1R2 and the A7R2. Almost 65% of the images were taken with the little fella. I did take other lenses with me, but the majority of the A7R2 images were taken with either the 16-35 or the Batis 25. Did not use the Batis 85 at all and just took a handful of images with the 55 1.8

    I found the RX1R2 to be really everything I thought it would be. Small, lightweight, not intimidating to people around, quick to focus, super sharp wide open and overall excellent image quality.

    I used it for all kinds of images, people, street candids, buildings, vistas and general landscape stuff. Did not notice any 'field curvature' effect at f5.6 - f11.

    I do have a couple of minor niggles. I prefer using the back-button focusing with all my cameras and there is no way to do this and it means there is also no way to turn off AF with the shutter release in auto-focus mode. Other issues such as low battery life etc I am not going into.

    Perhaps the best travel camera ever. Amazing power in such a tiny package. Will post some images in the Fun With thread.
    Too much to list, let's just say I have a bad case of GAS.........

    Here is how to do back-button focusing on the RX1Rm2:

    1. Place camera in MF mode via dial on front. This removes AF from the shutter release.
    2. Assign the AEL button to "AF/MF Control Hold." Camera will now AF only while AEL button is pressed.

    Works great for basic AF-S. No worky with AF-C since that requires changing off MF mode.

    Hope this helps!

    Jim's already answered the correct work around. What I also suggest is assigning C1 to toggle between AF and MF - more convenient and faster than using the stiff dial on the front.

    I have fitted my old RX1 RRS bracket to the new RX1R2 and it fits just fine. Am I missing something?

    The tripod socket has been moved between the RX1 and the RX1R-II.

    Here is my 'really light stuff' solution. About 42 grams, with front grip, rear thumb support, quick release, battery/SD access.

    Indeed.

    Placed an order for the new grip. Looking forward to trying it ASAP.

    I can attest that Robert's work on his line of super lightweight grips is phenomenal. The fit is as close to perfect as you are likely to find and they add almost zero perceptible weight to the camera. The way he designed the integrated thumb grip on each model is both creative and I would argue more functional and comfortable than a traditional hot shoe mounted thumb rest.

    His RX1RII version wasn't ready before I left for Iceland and I was cursing him every time I had to touch the freezing metal of my RRS (knockoff) grip. The material in his grips don't conduct the cold at all.

    The Force is strong with these.

    The eye cup fell apart.

    I can not even order one like the > 200 thumbs grip or the other atrociously priced lens hood.

    The Nissin Air commander needs to be trimmed a bit on one side to accommodate the pop up EVF.

    Now I know why the eye cup feel apart--your long eye brow caught on it and pulled it right off the camera.

    But does is allow the EVF to fully engage? The Nissin i40 does not, so it cannot be used with the EVF.

    Yes, the whole point of the post + pics.

    What you encountered with the i40 is the same with the stock Air commander.

    Re: Rx1r2

    Wireless TTL support with the Nissin Air stops ~1/200s on the RX1R II. Above that and upto 1/2000s, it syncs but only in manual mode, treating it as HSS (which incidentally works only in manual mode with any camera and the Nissin!).

    So, there are limits to the wireless flash use and there are certain things (rear curtain sync, for example) that can only be done by mounting the flash directly or via an extension cord.

    I had the RX1RII on pre-order with Amazon last fall and when the camera didn't arrive in the first wave I cancelled. Re-ordered from Amazon on 12/14/15 and just received the camera a few days ago. Seems to be working well with no focusing problems or other issues.

    Congrats, Carl!

    For me the C (ontinuous auto focus) works better (fast!) than the S mode.

    Look forward to your pics!

    Re: Rx1r2

    There is a review out and I do agree with the conclusions.

    http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/rx1r-ii-review

    Instead of the thumbs grip one is better served by using Monza's custom grip. With it, it is a totally different camera altogether, in terms of handling.

    Sony should be promoting this grip instead of the silly accs they are trying to sell.

    The critique about the thumb grip getting in the way of important controls was totally absurd. I guess he didn't actually use one, unless he needs constant access to the playback button, which is easily accessible by flipping the lever.

    It's always a personal experience, but I didn't like the custom grips. But I do like the thumb grip, a lot, and it makes the camera much easier to hold with one hand. For me.

    Have you ever tried Monza's grip? It is ~40 g in weight, covers the bottom (so that the camera cane be placed on ground if need be without any fear of scratches, alllows access to battery/card, prvents accidental video recording) while improving the ergonomics tremendously. Yes, it allows access to all the buttons.

    Re: Rx1r2

    We all have to use the accessories that work best for us. I have used the thumb grip on Leicas and was very happy. I don't have the RX1-II yet, but could not be more happy with the Monza grip on my RX1-R. I was worried about bulk and weight, but the grip is a featherweight and fits like a glove (as Vivek has stated).

    I tried the Fotodiox (which at that point didn't fit the M2 perfectly). Having the grip on the front of the camera did little for me, in fact it made it feel a bit more clumsy. And it doesn't have a place where I would naturally put my thumb.

    BTW, I did a Google search and can't find anything on about a Monza grip. Do you have a link?

    The thumb grip is all I need, and it does not interfere with anything. It weighs 30g.

    Re: Rx1r2???

    So whatever happened to it – the RX1rII? We heard long ago that Sony discovered and admitted to a light leak, and told original purchasers they could have replacements. Some actually received them.

    But by now there's been time for Sony to disassemble every one that was made, stick a piece of gaffer's tape in it, and send it out shooting again – along with all those made in intervening months.

    Yet still no new ones seem to be arriving at dealers. CameraWest WC say they've never received one.

    ???

    Re: Rx1r2

    Replacing the initial run no doubt exhausted the supply chain, and I'm sure Sony would have loved to have caught up to demand by now.

    This is a very expensive, niche camera assembled and checked in Japan. They can't crank them out as fast as the A7's, RX100 etc.

    Well they didn't tell me! According to a list I saw around here my serial number came up red but Sony UK obviously can't be bothered contacting anyone over it.
    Still, not to worry, I've not experienced any light leaks - I must add that I only use the EVF when shooting landscapes but these are few compared to the much greater number of street shots I use this camera for and I haven't seen the need to ram a torch down the hole to force it either.

    Re: Rx1r2

    Well, I have not read all 800+ posts about this, but here's my take, having arrived late to the party.

    I bought an RX1R2, and here's why: after so many years of packing around a full system of film bodied nikons, followed by a fling with medium format cameras, I eventually got to the point where I wouldn't, and couldn't, pack all this gear around anymore. Especially when traveling.
    So I moved into a m43 system, and lived happily ever after... mostly.

    This little Sony with the amazing Zeiss lens on it scratches that "ghost itch" I still had for a full frame camera, and even approaching MF quality. (Though not quite).

    Yes the price is steep, but I managed to wait long enough to find a minty pre-owned one locally. And fortunately, at this stage in my life I was able to muster the spare funds to grab it.

    I haven't had time to put it through it's paces yet, but it will be my main camera on a trip to Europe this fall... where I expect it will perform wonderfully, based on images I'm seeing on this and other forums!

    I am a believer that you can get great pictures from almost any sort of camera, as long as you work within its limitations. But having said that, it's very nice to have choices!

    Re: Rx1r2

    Very nice!

    I still toy with the idea of ditching my A7rII and suite of lenses for an RX1rII alongside a smaller m4/3 or APS-C setup. A 35/2 is just about perfect for personal shooting, although using the 28/2 on my Sony I've warmed to a wider perspective with the option to crop from 42MP (so maybe I should go Leica Q??). I might still have trouble selling my 55/1.8 though... what a gem of a lens! Ah, I should just enjoy what I've got and go shoot some

    People have said that the RX1R2 35 Zeiss is actually wider than 35... not sure what the actual FOV is though. Maybe someone has determined this?
    Be interesting to know.

    I'm lucky if I remember what day of the week it is! Lol

    It may have been on a forum, or one of the many online reviews I've read while deliberating about the camera - I don't recall.

    But I'm hoping someone here can tell us! 😎

    Re: Rx1r2

    popcan, be assured it is a 35mm lens. Not wider than that.

    That's good enough for me..... I admire all your street shots- I guess you've got that figured out!

    Re: Rx1r2

    Thanks! There were many "wishes" that it could have been wider or could have been a "normal" lens, etc. Run your files through C1 (free) and you will find that it is a 35mm.

    Spectacular camera! Enjoy!

    thanks, I'm sure I will enjoy this little gem - but I have to say, as a new member on this forum, it is quite humbling to see the amazing images many of you are putting up. It underscores how far I have to go! I also have to overcome some issues with color blindness, mainly in the blue/green and browns. It creates some challenges for me in PP... but I always have my wife to point out any really weird choices I might sometimes make! Lol

    Consequently I am shooting more B&W these days.

    Re: Rx1r2

    If anyone is looking for a replacement viewfinder cup I'm selling a spare genuine A2088145B eye piece over in Buy & Sell. I found two and just sold my RX1R II with one of them. This is my 2nd spare new in box - selling at my cost.

    But by now there's been time for Sony to disassemble every one that was made, stick a piece of gaffer's tape in it, and send it out shooting again along with all those made in intervening months.

    The proper way to handle a recall... replace faulty units with new ones and don't try to stick it to the customer. It seems that certain vendors are having a lot of trouble doing this these days...
