RX1, whose body looks borderline pocketable yet stuffs in the same kind of sensor (and likely image quality) you'd normally reserve for pro-grade models. Several extra details reveal themselves right from the start. The RX1 is carrying a 35mm, f/2.0 lens with no apparent button to detach the lens
Wow, a full frame "compact" camera, didn't see that coming.
But cool idea. If everything is done right, and I think it will be, then we may get the best image quality we've ever seen for a hand-sized camera.

Of course, like I wrote about recently, with only a prime (non-zoom) lens, this will appeal only to people who put image quality (and portability) on a tall pedistal. For many people's general use it'll feel limited. A 35mm lens is for example not the best choice for portraits, unless you want the location and background to play a significant role.
