When Sony announced the RX1 quite many said the price ($2800) was way too high. But read what Lloyd Chambers (Click here) says about the RX1 lens only: “It is my expectation that the Zeiss Sonnar 35/2 will outperform the Leica 35/2 Summicron-M. I am not basing this on the fantasy-land Sony MTF charts” And the Leica Lens alone costs over $3000 (just check the price here on eBay). And he also says: “I expect the Sony RX1 to be an exceptional performer in terms of sharpness and bokeh and dynamic range and color and noise.

For the record, Lloyd is a well known and what’s more important also very honest reviewer. A good premise for Sony.
