Cameraholic Digest: RX1, A99, D600, Eos-M, NEX-6, E-PL5, V2, X-F1, P7700, etc

And now let us take a look at some of the latest happenings in the world of camera gear. Completed lens reviews are only posted at the Lens Reviews Stream. In this edition, we are trying an experimental format, inspired by our catch-up-a-thon split of last week - we break them down by sensor size instead of by manufacturer name... Please also note that Cameraholic Digest round-ups cover what happened since the previous Camerahodlic Digest episode, so they do mention any "impact review alerts" that were posted in the meantime. This is for completeness purposes for people who go from Digest to Digest.
