Cameraholic Digest: X-Pro1 RAW, 5D Mark III, E-M5 RAW, D4 robots, etc

We can't even take a lunch break without things piling up to the moon! Time for a new edition of the Cameraholic Digest, which uses a variation of the "trade show format" (updates by manufacturer instead of sensor-size)... Focus on Imaging trade show action is included in the manufacturer sections if it is manufacturer-specific, or in its own section below if it is more general...

If you missed any of our previous "Cameraholic Digest" episodes, you can find them all at the Cameraholic Digest page.
