howielenny: The GX7 for me all the way. The LX100 is interesting and has 4k video but then again so does my Sony Z2 mobile phone. I guess if video is more important then go for the LX100 otherwise go for the GX7.

As I said what suits me needs doesn't necessarily suit the needs of someone who wants the LX100. Its just my personal opinion and I have a lot of old m42 glass I love to use like my Asahi Takumar 50mm f1.4, Asahi Takumar 135mm/3.5 and Vivitar 200mm/3.5 lenses I can use with a m42 - m/43 mount adapter. I also own the fantatstic 45mm f1.8 Olympus lens. For me the limited range of the LX100 means its not a camera I would consider so therefore I'm more than happy I have my GX7 :)

If you mean the limited focal length of the LX100 compared to the wide range of lenses for M/43, I'll stick to the GX7. Of course my needs do not fit everyone's needs but with the GX7 I can use virtually any lens with the use of an adapter alongside the wide array of Micro 4/3 lenses already available.

If I'm honest nothing really grabs me apart from the Shark and claw images. The winning image is pretty dull and boring (to me at least). I've seen far better wildlife images on Flickr and 500px.

Sigma should stick to making lenses, they really know how to produce bad, ugly cameras.

Good to see Tamron investing into M43. Having used Tamron lenses with my D7000 along with Sigma and Nikon, this will be a nice addition to m43. I'm more of a prime man myself so will eagerly await to see what primes they come out with :)

On Best Camera of 2012: And the Winner is... article (1412 comments in total)

All the cameras are great. Personally being a Nikon man I think the D800E is a better camera than the 5D MkIII though I wouldn't say no to any of the top three :)
