$3,000 for a fixed lens camera
A new digital camera has leaked from Sony called the RX1. The fixed-lens camera appears to be very compact yet has very impressive specifications for a “pocketable” camera.
The rumors claim that the camera will have a full-frame sensor and will sport a Carl Zeiss 35mm F/2.0 compact lens. Speculation points to price tag of around $3,000, which seems like a lot for camera that doesn't support interchangeable lenses.
The only details we know are from the photographs. The camera has a hot shoe for flash or other accessories, a pop-up flash, and a control wheel on the top for aperture and other settings.
This digital camera is expected to compete against the Fuji X100 and the Leica X2. The official announcement of the camera is expected to happen on Wednesday, September 12.
Would you buy a $3,000 digital camera without support for interchangeable lenses?

He probably has a medium format camera from Hasselblad, like the HD4-60 or something a bit fancier maybe, like the HDR-200MS. These cameras cost in the $40k region, give or take. Or if he does video, it's probably RED camera. Anyways, this is like comparing apples and diamond-encrusted oranges.
It's conceivable that a professional with funding (not his own) or money to burn personally could use such a "point and shoot" pocket-ish sized camera alongside his regular gear, as a supplement.
But yeah...the lack of interchangeable lenses really is the Achilles' heel of the RX1. For the price, I would still go with a D800, or if it wasn't over 1k more expensive, the 5D Mark III.
