The cult of the orange ring?

This is a FAKE !! ( but very well done) . Especially the subscription on the orange ring does the job.

The rumored A99 has the exact same orange ring announcing that it is a FF CMOS sensor.... Perhaps Sony is trying to make that ring a symbol for everything Sony FF?

Is it real? Probably. The RX1 described would be a very easy thing for Sony to come out with. For example, nobody can yell "where are the FF E-mount lenses?" if Sony comes out with a fixed-lens camera. Also, this sends an interesting message answering anybody who might think Canon's EOS-M offers better IQ than the Sony NEX line -- the EOS-M is similarly viewfinderless and has only one small lens option, which happens to have the same view angle and aperture as RX1.
