$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?

Nikon and Canon reach the 'pro-sumer' level at best with their offerings. There's an entire realm of what is truly 'professional' far beyond small-formats like 35mm and apc-sized clones.
It's confusing, though.. Having been a serious-amateur photographer years before the digital evolution, I certainly know better. Nowadays, though.. most think that all it takes to be a 'professional' photographer is a mid-range dSLR, a macbook, and a copy of Adobe Lightroom.
They don't even teach Photoshop in most photography courses any more, opting instead for Lightroom due to it's cheaper price and, well -- 90% of students just aren't capable of anything more complicated. Personally, I think any 2 year course should have a required solid year of film-based photography classes prior to touching digital, just to teach the necessary basics that make the rest seem like a piece of cake (spend hours developing one roll of film into prints, you'll learn quick not to just take hundreds of snapshots and instead focus on taking one good picture). One recent graduate I know doesn't even know how aperture and shutter speed affect exposure..
