News Round Up: Nikon D600, Sony A99, RX1 etc, etc, etc.

What a busy week with Photokina happening, next week so lets jump straight in.

Fuji

Following on the success of the X-Pro1, Fuji have announced the X-E1. It features the same, highly acclaimed 16.3mp APS-C X-Trans CMOS Sensor that is in the X-Pro1 but this time without the fancy, hybrid optical and electronic viewfinder.

We are looking forward to testing this machine soon, particularly with the new 18-55mm f/2.8-4 standard zoom and 14mm f/2.8.
