If an OVF came out for the RX1 like this....I'd never think about another camera again...

    I love my RX1, don't get me wrong. I really like the EVF too, but a hybrid would be so amazing, I might make this my last camera I ever own (not really but you know what I mean)

    Here is an example of the X100S hybrid OVF. It's a clear OVF overlaid with framelines and an AF box that changes according to distance.

    That hybrid finder remains a pretty damned slick trick, some 2+ years on. I hope someone got a raise.

    you should be able to figure it out...
    Oh yeah, the viewfinder is the one area where the X100/X100s still just KILLS the RX1 (and pretty much everything else). I ended up being OK with the EVF and loved everything else about the RX1 that I'm glad I got that instead, but I've had an X100 and an X-Pro and that hybrid viewfinder is the greatest trick in modern cameras I'd say, even if the framelines are only approximations of the real ones...
