I have also been looking to get one of the rd-1 series but will have to sell of my current set up first and not sure if it's worth the risk :sweatsm:

I've been pretty keen too. It looks like a very unique camera for what it is. However I've been enquiring around and looking at eBay and noticed that the price range is at least $1.5k or above. I'm not saying it's not worth it, but most articles (including the Steve Huff) seem to advise on beginning with the R-D1 since it is a cheaper, and thus more safer option to those who want to try RF before plunging for a Leica. However at a price approaching $2k...for a 6 year old 6.1 megapixel camera, I wonder if it is that "good a bargain" when 2nd hand M8s go for around $3k+
I know it's another 1K+ but I'm just wondering what others opinions are on the price difference. Plus, adding the fact that Leica support and repair are very accessible here in Singapore but I have no idea the kind of support an older Epson would require?

R-D1 owners your opinions please?

Thanks.
Gavin

The rumour that is Epson RD-2 ??? :cool:



http://www.amateurphotographer.co.uk/news/epson_mulls_future_digital_camera_launch_news_304018.html

Epson launched the now-discontinued camera in 2004, in a partnership with Cosina.

'Since then we have been developing elements that would be used in digital cameras,' he said, adding that Epson announced development of electronic viewfinder panels in 2009.

'There are other elements in development'

If Cosina and Epson so much as produces a R-D2 and provide the necessary tech support, I'm so going to get one.

Then how?

Now I'm tempted to get another one. Should I get the M9, M8 or R-D1 again. Or maybe just NEX...

Hmmm.... I wonder how many here have already junked their R-D1?

Cheers,
