Was there multiple winners in some of the categories?
The other photo series in the Architecture section had much more interesting photos then the one shown here
I do not get the Conceptual photo or the series.... He used a unique technique to get them but what makes them good photos?
I like the concept of the Landscape series, the other two winning series in the landscape section was much better.
Really have to look at the series to do the dog Portraiture justice.
The Sigma 18-35mm and the Canon 200-400mm f/4L were both quite innovative and deserving of winning this vote.
While I would likely get a Olympus 12-40 F/2.8 because it falls a gap in the m4/3 lineup, I do not really think its anything special or unique. So I do not consider it deserves its current ranking.
Went with the Olympus Stylus 1, feel it has the most versatile lens out of all the options, it also has fairly good physical control. But I can easily understand why the Sony would win this contest.
Very hard to decide, but gave my vote to the Nikon 1 AW1 because it brings true innovation to the segment rather then evolutionary improvements which the others offered.
In saying that, the Pansonic GX7 was a close second, for owners of 4/3 lenses I can see the E-M1 being the top choice.
Birch_Tree: I always thought Android was a resource hungry operating system. Which would mean battery life, Performance or bulk would suffer. Probably better operating systems out there to use in a camera.
The fact that Symbian throws run fine on single core processors clocked at 680mhz while Androids need dual and quad cores clocked at 1.2GHZ to achieve comparable performance. Or power consumption, Nokia 808 540hr on standby compared with 300h for Samsung Galaxy S III I747.
