The Sigma 19mm f/2.8 is a good quality lens and at $99 certainly a no brainer! Grab it now at BHphoto (Click here). UPDATE: Few minutes after I posted this BHphoto icnreased the price back to $149 :(

New Sony RX1 reviews (Huff, Whatdigitalcamera, SLRclub) and in Stock status check.

On the video on top Steve Huff talks about the camera of the year, the Sony RX1.

Steve Huff picked up the RX1 as camera of the year 2012. And also posted the second part of his ongoing RX1 review. Too bad he compares it with cameras having small APS-C and MFT sensors. Can’t wait to see a comparison with the $7,000 Leica M!

Whatdigitalcamera posted the full Sony RX1 review. The camera got an impressive score of 92%: “With a superb build, excellent detail retention at low and high sensitivities and competent metering and auto white balance systems on hand, it’s unquestionably one of the finest digital cameras we’ve seen yet.

SLRclub also posted the full RX1 review. I guess 99% of you will not be able to read Korean but you can still look at these nice pictures!

Pascal:Hi Andrea,quick word to let you know there is a brief preview of the RX-1 on Dear Susans

Olivier:I’ve setup a new tumblr with the most beautiful Sony RX1 photos & videos. Maybe you want to share this with your fine audience? http://rx1files.tumblr.com

Reminder: We told you last week that no new FF model form Sony will be announced within the next 8-10 months. It also means that we have to wait a bit before Sony will release an interchangeable FF mirrorless system. What I really like about the RX1 concept is the fact that the sensor-camera and lens have been designed to match perfectly. That (along the size) is what really intruiges me about this camera. But the price difference between the US and Europe really p… me off! :)

Click these links to check price and in Stock status: Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto, Wex UK ,Wex Germany, Sonystore DE-UK-FR-IT-ES-NL-SE-FI-CH and more links at Alphacameradeals. Save $170 by simply purchasing the $7 cheap chinese metal hood (there is one here on eBay) instead of the original expensive Sony hood.

The RX1 accessories are shipping in Japan (on eBay via Slidoo).
