PerL: I would say that this list show how much DPReviews members differs from the general market and what actually sells.
"Canon 5D3 owned by 1903Canon 7D owned by 1856Olympus OM-D E-M5: owned by 1656Nikon D800 owned by 1527Nikon D7100 owned by 1366Sony A7R owned by 606Sony A6000 owned by 938"
So the only camera here that is eligible for this poll has at least half the ownership (in less than a year of availability, compared to say 7D that has been on the market 5 years+ and previous poll winner E-M5 at 3 years) then the most popular models here and you wonder why it was voted for so much? Makes sense...
Rob Sims: All worthy winners, although with Sony top for two categories, and runner up for a third, I'm curious how this comments section will pan out.
Just imagine the shock horror if the Sony/Zeiss 55/1.8 had made it into the lens list, the interwebs could have exploded (thankfully that was a 2013 lens!)
Despite all the complaints about the constant stream of cameras, Sony plays seriously in more categories than anyone else, which also partly explains why they 'seem' to have a new camera every week.
happypoppeye: So it's a Gm1 with articulating screen ...for less then the Gm1. Sounds good to me.
Exactly what I was thinking. Don't forget the flash as well (though extremely limited) but main thing is GM1 can now do waist level shooting for less than the current GM1... Nice!
steelhead3: Apple uses a Sony camera module
Dude take your meds, you'll get laid one day... it's ok!
zodiacfml: " Of course, Apple generally has a much smaller range of phones than the camera brands do camera models, so Apple’s popularity is concentrated into a few products, which exaggerates their position."
Is above the truth? Then, this post of flickr means little or nothing.
Besides, if a person uses a smartphone for online posting, I doubt they upload to flickr first. facebook/instragram has that market.
You sound like every Android Zealot on the internet... unique!
Oh and you really need to look up the meaning of impartial because having a rabid hate for one option is certainly not impartial.
I use a BLACKBERRY get it through your think skull! I have used Windows Phone (Ativ S most recently - a Samsung but also Nokia and LG), Android (too numerous, but Samsung Note 8 was the most recent - also Samsung, others were HTC, Sony and Nexus (Samsung)) an iPhone 5, a Palm Pre (WebOS), Nokia S60 and S90 (have you even heard of S90?), Palm OS and loads of dumb phones and other OSes a childish git such as yourself has never even heard of.
On laptop I use Windows 8.1 and my desktop is a Mac Pro with both Windows and OS X (for Final Cut Pro and a others).
I have used every version of Windows extensively and every version of Mac OS and OS X, DOS as well as quite a number of Linux distros.
And yes, I am a fanboy... of BLACKBERRY (for mobile).
Everything you say makes you sound like a clown, best you stop now.
So only you are impartial and everyone else must be using an iPhone?
"I am using a Samsung right now" - makes you very credible.
noflashplease: This Tamron lens is a vote of confidence in M43 general and Olympus in particular.
Like the 18-200mm is in EOS-M?
Sad. Pathetic. Trollboy. Fanboy. Zealot. I love how the very mention of Apple has you in an enraged trance. I pity you.
"Yeah right" is your only argument for why I MUST be an Apple witch? Zealot.
And yes, my BlackBerry is far superior to any Android or iOS POS. Good day sir.
@Papi61 - YOU are the ONLY person here who sounds like a religious zealot. Get it?
Not believable that one couldn't possibly be not using one or the other? I use a BlackBerry "::rolleyes::" you sound like a child, an indoctrinated child.
@ Papi61 - I have read about halfway down this page and the only 'cult of anything' I am seeing is Android (Samsung) fanboys bashing Apple. I don't care what anyone uses, but you seem to care very deeply if someone doesn't 'believe' in your holy holy.
PS - I don't use either, but your claims of 'Cult of Mac' and 'Cult of Apple' are SO amusing given the way you post about your beloved.
GaryJP: Apple makes cameras?
(Incidentally my Samsung Note 4 has a better "camera" than my old iPhone and even shoots 4k video.)
And Nikon is full of Sony and Fujitsu (or whoever it is, can't be bothered looking it up) chips. What is your point?
random name: I have a Minolta Maxum 35 mm film camera looks new but probably 20 years old!I own 2 zoom lenses that I like a lot What do I need to do to use them on the Sony Alpha 7 ?Will I still retain some eke tonic stabilization function?Thanks for info
You will need the LA-EA4 for screw drive lenses and you will get AF. These lenses never had IS to 'retain' but the A7 II has in body IS that will work with them.
alexzn: Seriously??? Yawwwnn... This camera makes zero sense in the market that has Ricoh GR or Fuji's own X100. Stop wasting time and get us the Pro-2.
The GR can go wider, same as using the Fuji 14mm but cheaper all in. X100 is not a smaller sensor.
Sorry to be this negative about this company,But they sure delivered a whole lot of nothing here.
"I'm absolutely sure that their new higher-level cameras will have a LOT more goodies - for example, at least a 24 Mpixel sensor."
Well at least they will only be about 4 years too late to the party by then.
abortabort: Wow this upgrade is on the same level as the 700D was (dial that rotates all the way around and new better kit lens), way to go Fuji!
Though the lamest update of all time would have to go to the A3500, no new dial or slightly changed screen hinge, but new kit lens... slower, cheaper and sans-IS.
Yeah the screen tilted before, now it just tilts 'different', but the kicker is the updated kit lens smacks of 700D update (which was almost 100% about changing the packaged kit lens other than the dial going all the way around - innovation at it's very best!).
I still want to see a brown on brown version of this thing though ;)

Mateus1: X-A2 specification: "Rangefinder-style mirrorless". Where is VF? :)
Rangefinder STYLE mirrorless. No mirrorless with EVF is a rangefinder either.
