Cameraholic Digest: more RX100, A57, D3200, GX1, E-M5, M Mono, XPro1, waterproof group test, etc

The time has finally come for a new edition of the Cameraholic Digest... Completed lens reviews, as usual, can be found at the Lens Reviews stream (Pentax 40/2.8 XS pancake, Fuji 35/1.4 XF, Samsung 85/1.4 NX, etc)... Completed reviews of advanced/interesting/intriguing cameras can be found at the Camera Reviews stream... Stock updates on hard to find cameras can be found at the Stock Status pages... In this edition, we are trying a new experiment, we are putting the links to previous completed reviews at the end of each brand's segment - this in an attempt to make the text easier to skim/scan/flow...
