Go, OM-D, go!!! You can do it!
Cy Cheze: Here's a pitch for the underdog LX7:
The control ring is limited to aperture selection, but it has dedicated wheels for shutter and ND filter. Each ratchets precisely. The RX100 ring lurches about. The LX7 offers time lapse, which the others do not. Its aperture is fastest across the full zoom range. One can suppress digital zoom in video, which one cannot with the Sony. Plus, it is intermitently offered at a $299 price, which is hard to beat. Can the RX100 be worth more than twice that? It too will sell for less when the RX200 (or the Samsung KX100!) draw nigh. But people who elect to spend more money, or get a tatoo, find ingenious ways to be cheerful they did.
Funny how some people just look at sensor quality while they ignore everything else: lens aperture range, ergonomics etc. The Olympus XZ-2 gets my vote for all round performance: its lens speed 2 more than makes up for the < 1 stop advantage the RX100 sensor brings.
Leonard Shepherd: Responding to Zerg2905 where Nikon is now is more important than where it was a few years ago.Nikon appear to be producing the most lenses a year and might soon be ahead of Canon. This would tend to confirm Nikons current market share is moving ahead of Canon.
@sandy b:Just for you:http://www.canon.com/ir/results/2012/rslt2012q3e.pdfand http://www.nikon.com/about/ir/ir_library/result/pdf/2013/13_2qf_d_e.pdf
"For the July to Sep 2012 period, in their respective imaging products division,
Nikon net sales = 190.9 billion yen, operating profit = 22.2 billion yen
Canon net sales = 322 billion yen, operating profit = 52.6 billion yen"
Nikon net sales and profit improved, but still nowhere close to Canon's numbers.
photo nuts: Canon reached their 80 millionth milestone in Aug 2012. Why was that NOT reported in DPReview?
LOL @sandy b: spoken like a true hypocrite.This is just news reporting and I am asking a perfectly legitimate question.

There are so many great entries in this challenge. Honestly, I won't be able to pick a winner from this lot!
IMO, the framing arch is the tipping point that makes this shot stands apart from the rest. Nicely done.
Marvelous shot! I love it!
Decent camera. Not as light as one hopes for the SLT design, but acceptable.
Took a peek at Sony store for some lenses... Ewwwww... far too limited. Cannot compare to the m43 arsenal, much less Canikon range.
Good effort. Try harder next time Sony, especially your lens department.
Great composition. Well deserved
I LOVE the kid's expression. Great shot!
One of the best photos I have seen in a long, long time. This is an amazing shot!
Simple and elegant. Great composition!
Serene and beautiful. Love it!
Question: did you need to use ND Grad filter for this shot?
Very unusual composition. Love it!
Most of the photos are already awesome by themselves. Love this collage!
Lighting is fantastic!
The timing of the wave greatly helps the composition. Nice!
Great shot. Deserves much higher placement.
