ThePhilips: Judging by the mix of cameras on the list, the "enthusiast camera" moniker meaning less and less.
Inclusion of the Pentax on the list is rather unexpected. Sad to see system sliding into obsolescence. But IMO in 2013 and forward, with such limited lens catalog, having just lost 3rd party lens manuf support, and no video, the Pentax simply has no place on the list among the mainstream cameras today. Sad, but true.
NEX-7 and Fuji X-Pro1 are also oddballs on the list. IMO they are not proper "enthusiast cameras", but "enthusiast's second cameras". And that deserves its own category. Many own two systems this days, and choice of second system is important too. I think "Best enthusiast cam to go with your Canon/Nikon DSLR" might be two interesting topics (one for Canon, one for Nikon).
Research the Pentax system before posting. Pentax has the largest selection of APSc oriented prime lenses of any system and is a great camera to use. It also definitely has video.
It would be dissapointing if the Olympus OM-D was a m4/3rds body. I have always been hankering for an OM5-D continuing the OM line of lenses and bodies and remaining manual focus only:
policeman0077: a low price version without hybrid viewfinder and more compact body would be interesting
Without hybrid viewfinder??? Why??? For most users the main attraction is the window finder. Now if only they had added a real rangefinder and used a manual helical in the lens instead of manual focus by wire it would have been perfect.
