Cameraholic Digest: many comparisons, X-Pro1, NEX-F3, etc

Time for an icy cold beverage and a new edition of the Cameraholic Digest, it's like The View for camera gear, except (fill in the blanks)... Lens Reviews, as usual, can be found at the Lens Reviews primery (a primery is a place where you store prime lenses?)... One more housekeeping item, a new edition of the Opinions round-up will come out during the weekend, so if you have written or read any opinions, please let me know using the online contact form... In this edition, since there are quite a few comparisons, we group them together at the top instead of weaving them through the brand-specific sections...
