A week ago this debate was a novelty.... yaaaaaawwwwwnnnnn
naththo: Oh what a joy of full of troll filling up again! I hope I can be a copper and take him to jail for hacking the forum to allow him to return under the nose of dpreview forum. You blinking Just Posted come here and listen to me you twerp! You broke the rules and/or law by many section: Flaming/Trolling, abusing the forum (by hacking dpreview to allow you to access back into forum while banned is/was not lifted) your ip (True ip from internet provider not the dynamic ip by connect its different is the only one true ip is banned and you would never be able to return). You still come back and I blinking knew you hack it. I hope you get caught soon. You blinking also listen to me: Leave the blinking people alone and back off! Or else your next! Got it eh? Now sod off!
Do I detect that you may not like him very much?
He he, this thread may not have much photographic merit but it is entertaining and also very revealing about some of the members who are pouring vitriol on the camera that just happened to win the poll. Take Just Posted, for instance; I can tell from his attitude and the rubbish he writes that he has never taken a decent photograph in his life, without the need to see his gallery.
The camera is just a tool, for goodness sake. Don't waste your energy constantly belittling the tool I happen to find appropriate for my needs when it is quite obvious you've never actually used an E-M5, I won't be influenced by your misinformed ramblings. Just go and get some much-needed practise with your own camera, whatever that is (and I don't care).
Pal2012: OM-D - Nice conspicuous paper weight!
Not as good a door stop as the D800 though
It amazes me that so many people should have sour grapes that a non Canikon camera should win a poll. Why should it matter to them? If they don't like the E-M5 nobody is forcing them to buy one - just carry on using your DSLRs, guys, and don't be so churlish. The E-M5 won because it is a fantastic camera which inspired more people to vote for it than any other camera. End of.
Lea5: Interesting to see this camera has won. I use a D4 and D800E but I like the result. It looks like the Oly is a nice camera. I'm not surprised about this arguing stuff here. But congrats, Olympus!
I'm glad your pictures are so good that they need and deserve all that extra FF IQ.
backayonder: Well the camera I voted for won, no I don't own one, I'm a Nikon user but the new D600 and D800 leave me cold,. Don't know why but I'm just not interested. For me the Olympus has everything that a good camera design should have. Well everything that most of the other models are missing. It has a viewfinder for starters.
By the way Dp review if you are going to have a poll then we the voters have to be able to vote for any camera, not just from a list put together by you guys.
Well then, don't buy one. You'll never know what you're missing and it's no skin off my nose. If you're happy to continue using your outdated Crappon why should I care?
