First things first: If you don't have a budget in excess of $2,500 for your digital camera shopping, you may want to stop reading now.

And if you're expecting a DSLR camera body and a few lenses for that price, you also may want to stop reading.

For those who've stuck with me, Sony has recently begun selling what's almost certainly the most expensive fixed lens camera in the consumer market, the Cyber-shot DSC-RX1. (Compare Prices)

The RX1 has some amazing features, including the ability to capture images in RAW. It offers a full frame image sensor with 24.3MP of resolution, can shoot at up to 25600 ISO, features an f/2.0 aperture lens, can shoot full 1080p HD video, has a popup flash, and a high-resolution 3.0-inch LCD.

You just simply aren't going to find a full frame image sensor in a fixed-lens, consumer-level camera anywhere else. It will be interesting to see whether holiday shoppers believe that feature justifies the high price tag on the RX1.
