The Sony RX1R is essentially the same camera as the Sony RX1, including the fixed 35mm F/2 Zeiss lens and the full-frame 24-megapixel sensor. The only difference between the two is that in the RX1R, Sony has physically taken out the anti-aliasing filter, giving it the ability to capture finer detail. Of course, this also means it opens the door to more moire, which will have to be taken care of in post. It’s a feature that Nikon has been offering for a while with their D800/D800E.
Unlike the Nikon, though, the RX1R will be the exact same price as RX1, $2,800, and the two will live on together in the Sony lineup. The images that follow were taken right from the Sony RX1R. We did convert them from Adobe RGB to sRGB using Photomechanic for your viewing pleasure. Also be sure to check out our Sample Image Gallery for the Sony RX100 II.
