Cameraholic Digest: Fuji X-Pro1, Nikon D4, NEX-7 high ISOs, E-M5 RAW, and more

Time for yet another edition of the "Cameraholic Digest". Yesterday we posted a catch-up-a-thon edition, today we have the Monday Morning Quarterback edition ;-) In this edition, we experiment with a different format, broken down by manufacturer instead of camera-type (the way we do the trade show round-ups). If you have a strong preference on either format, please use the online contact form, opine on Twitter or leave a comment below...
