Got an RX1 for $100. What now?
Hey guys, so unbelievable circumstances have put a Sony RX1 in my hands for $100. An ex-sony exec owns a record shop in my town and had it in there as a sort of "take it off my hands" item when I walked in. Don't ask me why, I don't know either. Regardless, I now have the camera. It has a few scratches on the LCD but the shutter count is under 500 and I could probably get around $1400-1500 for it on ebay (or shoot me an offer if you want it). The ultimate goal is to get an A7Sii and a 24-70 2.8 of some sorts, but I think that may be a little unattainable. I got a GH3 a few weeks ago to replace my 60d, and I got a metabones and a 25 1.7 for it that I can return for a full refund. What I'm thinking now is to sell the RX1 for $1500, my Tokina 11-16 for $350, the GH3 for $400, and get my money back for the accessories ($650). That gives me a total of $2900. I could go for the a7sii, but I would only be left with vintage primes and a vintage tele to work with, and I want a standard zoom as a utility. Should I get the original a7s and a sigma 24-70 2.8 instead? Other suggestions? I've wanted a good full frame body for a long time and I think I have my opportunity now.
I'd want to shoot it for a while... then sell it for glass.
Why do you need the A7Sii? Do you need all it's features? Do you need the lowlight? I'd go with something else if you don't need those.
I'll give you a $100 for it right meow
