ybizzle: Bought a new Pentax Q for $250 that has about the same IQ as this at a fraction of the size and price. What a little gem and it gets compliments whenever people see it. :)

Looks like the optional optical viewfinder will cost you as much as the Q itself. ;)

I'm glad Nikon brought out the V2 because it made the V1 affordable for me. After ebaying the 10-110 & FT-1 adapter from the $799 kit, my V1 + flash + 10-30 cost me less than $250! :) And I'm loving the built-in evf.

I don't think that you can chalk up the OM-D win to fanboy-ism. With roughly 15,000 votes cast, it would seem to be a large enough sampling to give a valid statistical conclusion. Mind you, I haven't the coin for one just yet, but would love to shoot one of my own (OM-D) eventually. ;)

The OMD met and exceeded most all expectations and was a true step forward in the micro 4/3rds market. I'd say our peers nailed this poll on the head.

IrishhAndy: Can't wait for the OM_D Pro, It is 'Fire Born'. Forged on Mt Olympus and bathed in the light of gods.

Booyah! Who would have thought that the underdog OLYMPUS would take home the prize, out of this list of seasoned contenders? But, to be fair the OMD was a huge step forward in the high-end mirrorless market. Congrats to Olympus on a well deserved pat on the back!

Kukaduro: An exceptionally unattractive camera. 70s retro has never really came back. What a waste of design and manufacturing.

I really like the retro styling. I think Oly has hit one out of the park with the OM-D! Quick, someone front me $1,000 to buy one. :p
