$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?

...pay $3000 for this when the Canon 5D Mk II is flitting with the $2000 mark with lens.

Because you can't fit a 5D MkII in your pocket.
Some say the best camera you own is the best one you carry around with you.
