Curious, I didn't even know that camera existed until I looked, I have something of a blind spot towards 4/3rds format.

Anyways, nice to see DPR still being its old self (lmao yeah right), you could type a generic reply to anyone in the comment section and it would be accepted as a valid response.

I acquired an expensive camera so I can hang out in forums, annoy wedding photographers during formals and look down on P&S users... all the while telling people it's the photographer, not the camera.

Completely useless poll as is any poll of any product that is based upon votes from consumers.

First, those who own the Nikon (probably) don't own the other two. Those who own the Canon probably.... and so forth. So if they don't own all three, how can they know?

But primarily, "votes" reflect emotions, not technical specs. The only true awards for products can be originated in highly-technical labs that are capable of analyzing and evaluating all aspects of product performance.

The majority of clueless morons who vote in polls like this probably don't perform any greater technical evaluation that pixel-peeping at 100% in photoshop.

The entire premise of the article is mis-named. It should not be the "best" camera, but rather the "most popular" camera. And that's an entirely different animal.

There in no way this guy would choose an Olympus over a Canon 5D Mk III or even a Nikon D800. Who votes in these polls anyway?


G1x, EOS 1Dx, EOS 1D Mk IV, ef 8-15mm f4L,
ef 16-35mm f2.8L II, ef 24-70mm f2.8L II, ef 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II,
