This is the first time the new Sony RX1 is in Stock and shipping via Amazon itself (Click here to grab one). Don’t know how long it will remain in Stock…
UPDATE: And indeed the camera has now been sold out.

Reminder: Save $170 by simply purchasing the $7 cheap chinese metal hood ([shoplink 15410 ebay]there is one here on eBay[/shoplink]) instead of the original expensive Sony hood.

The luxury leather case producer Gariz announced a new case for the NEX-5r. You can buy it (and see more pics) on their [shoplink 15853 ebay]eBay store (Click here)[/shoplink].

New RX1 reviews and in Stock status. (RX1 was(!) in Stock at Amazon US)

For the first time the RX1 is (now was!) listed as in Stock at Amazon US (via third party reseller). There is only one in Stock and I guess the deal will last for a couple of minutes only :( A couple of more cameras can be found on eBay (via Slidoo). But mostly overpriced.

Our Australian readers are also getting their RX1 cameras and they shared two impression reviews at Calebluke and Nexusers. Eleven user reviews can be read at Amazon US.

And if you need a battery be aware that you find some cheap third party alternative on [shoplink 15857 ebay]eBay[/shoplink] (let me know how they work!).

Click these links to check price and in Stock status: Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto, Wex UK ,Wex Germany, Sonystore DEUKFRITESNLSEFICH and more links at Alphacameradeals.

Save $140 on the Sigma 30mm 1.4. Update on the Sony RX1 availability at Adorama.

The current Sigma 30mm f/1.4 EX DC got a $140 rebate at BHphoto (Click here). And there are still some ongoing Sigma and NEX deals at Amazon (Check that deals overview page).

And the wrong Sony RX1 in Stock status info at Adorama (Click here) now got fixed. They now marked the product as “Available for pre-order – Shipping; in Limited Quantity“. Helene from Adorama was kind enough ot post a comment on SAR:
We DID receive a delivery; our automated inventory system would have shown them in stock when they were unloaded and scanned into our system. However, as we had more back-orders than units delivered, there are back-orders still to be filled when we get our next delivery. Unfortunately, we don’t yet have an ETA from the manufacturer.
