Sony introduces world’s first full-frame compact camera

Olivier Laurent for BJP:

As of 12 September, Sony’s Cyber-shot DSC-RX1 is said to be the world’s first compact camera with a 35mm full-frame 24.3 effective megapixel sensor.

Sweeeeet. I always wondered when this would happen. Looks like this is the perfect street camera, besides probably being also great for everything else.
