After the Announcement: Sony RX1, A99, NEX-6 (full-size samples: A99, NEX-6)

And now time to catch up with the new Sony cameras action, more specifically with new posts posted after we finalized last night's initial announcement round-up. This blog-post is now finalized! Enjoy!

One side-effect of today's Apple announcement is that it has overshadowed the Sony Big Bang from the headlines at the various technology and gadget blogs. Barring the Apple iPhone event, the new Sonys would have gotten a lot more attention among the techies/geeks/nerds/etc.

One more thing - if you find our never-ending updates useful/helpful/entertaining/tragically-unhip, then please make sure you make some of your pre-orders/purchases through our Amazon affiliate links. This is our main source of funding that keeps this blog alive!
