Pogue’s review doesn’t touch on anything you probably don’t already know about the RX1. But there were two things in particular I liked about his article: (a) his cheesy (literally) 60-second video; and (b) this closing bit about the RX1 being more than just a great camera, it’s a milestone:

In the meantime, it’s fantastic that Sony decided to produce this expensive, astonishing, limited, one-of-a-kind machine. You may scoff at its nonzooming lens, its slowish focusing and its nosebleed price, and that’s fine; in many ways, the RX1 is a proof of concept, a bold experiment, an effort to achieve what’s always been thought unattainable.
