Zeiss ZX1 First Hands-on Preview


The new Zeiss ZX1 full frame mirrorless compact camera will be officially released in early 2019. Here is the first hands-on report of ZX1 by raylarose.

From raylarose:

Holding it in the hand is like nothing else. When I first grabbed it, it reminded me (slightly) of the X1D and much nicer than the Sony RX1R II I had. It’s definitely meatier than the Sony A7R II as well. The slight curve to the body is a dream and fits the hand really well. Raw photos are a dream (even in beta) – a feel that’s really approaching medium format for me. There was something special about the look from this camera. You’ll see once I can share something, though I don’t think I can legally share them at this time (until off a production model). But I’m check with Zeiss legal on that.
