Tough crowd . I thought the "buy" rate would be much higher.

Regardless of the focal length, I still wonder about the tactile feel of such a small camera.

I'm on a bit of a 50mm kick of late. Between the Bessa and 50mm Nokton and my Pana Leica 25 being all but crazy glued to the OM-D, it's how I've been rolling for a few weeks now.

I bet a lot of folks would pick two or even three of them over the option of an interchangeable lens camera system. I'd personally pick either the combination of an RX35 and an RX85 or maybe just an RX50.

24mm 1.2 with a viewfinder for me. Going that wide, I wouldn't care for IS. Between this and the 35mm on the X100, I would be set for life (or till I get a 645D). But seriously, I would be done with small compacts with these two.

Why not:) I prefer the leica 25mm on my m43 also...

what about a neat 24-35-50mm stepzoom lens? :-D
Not sure if it would actually make it easier to create a high quality "zoom"-lens that way, but I've always been intrigued by the concept of having three quality primes in one :-)

I barely ever use my 50ish equivalent lenses on my system cameras - would never buy a camera limited to that. In the film days, I used em because it was all I had. Once good wide angles were available at reasonable prices, I was done with 50s.
Put a 24 or 28 in it and add a focus/distance scale in the manual focus and I'm there. In fact, if Sony had put any sort of distance scale in their MF display, I'd buy the RX100 - probably already would have. As is, I won't.
