Sony's IFA 2013 press event was, as usual, a big one. For starters, the company showed off its Smartwatch 2, just barely beating Samsung to the punch. It also showed a new flagship smartphone in the Z1, an update to the older Xperia Z that features a massive 20.7-megapixel camera. Sony also showed off a trio of Vaio laptops, a strange but beautiful camera dubbed the Music Video Recorder, and — most curiously — a pair of camera lenses with built-in sensors meant to be mounted to your smartphone. Sony's QX smart lenses were heavily leaked ahead of their unveiling, but they're still perhaps the most intriguing product released at IFA so far. Catch up with Sony's biggest announcements from IFA 2013 right here.
