The Zeiss Zx1 camera was announced more than two years ago before the company stopped talking about it. B & H photo has sent out emails saying that it’s coming soon and is now available to preorder for $ 6,000.
The Zx1 has a 37-megapixel full-frame sensor, a fixed 35mm f/2 lens, an electronic viewfinder. More unusually, it has a 4.3-inch touchscreen and runs a variant of Android.
Another comparison in the premium full-frame compact space would be the Leica Q2, which sells for $ 4,995. Zeiss is no doubt confident in the Zx1’s optics and performance, but you know a camera’s expensive when it makes a Leica look cheap.
