Tape5: Let's see first we had - ''The best camera of 2012'' where the OM-D converts told us about their ecstasy with their cameras ( remind me not to ask you about the best restaurant in town ).

Now we get '' The best camera of 2012, and the winner is....'' so we are hearing it all over again. But I don't think this cat is dead yet. I suggest DPR go for a third thread..maybe even more....Let me see...how about...

''and for those who didn't get it the winner was....'' or
''transform your life into an utter state of content with .....'' or
''forget about the best, see what OM-D can do for you right now while stocks last''

stone the non-believer.....he blasphemes

monodrift: So many hurt little egos here.
Certainly entertaining to read, however :)

this has proven to be more fun than the off topic forum

Ubilam: Blah, blah, blah... so much drool and dribble posted. Nobody posting here has any of these 'winners' anyways!

unfortunately the record is scratched and keeps repeating the same thing over and over and over......

noonecantellimadog: Have to say I really love my em-5. Menus from other brands ARE hard at first. Funny thing is that is not a fault of the platform per se. Guess i'm glad I got on board with epl2 and EPL3. Easy now. Two ff and an mu43. Guess we know where aps-c stands.

the native lens selection is neither long enough, fast enough nor good enough, and if it was the CA-F still isn't there yet. I looked long and hard at it for telephoto, close but no cigar.

APS-C is great for telephoto

Novecento: Olympus made a real new cool camera... the EM-5 is great.
Canon and Nikon just make updates of their products

Olympus don't make updates.....they just drop systems as they please.

IrishhAndy: Olympus are the Apple of cameras. Soon the dslr will die with rhe PC generation

and you get to camp outside the camera store for 24hours before you get to buy one off some smarmy sales git who looks down on you for actually buying the product

IrishhAndy: I named my om-d bessie. Do other users have names for their cameras?

yes i called mine "the best camera in the world", apparently it was too good to be used in the DPR poll because it would of gotten all the votes........ it's that good

In reply to:

IrishhAndy: Has any one noticed that the big cameras are straight on while the om-d is at an angle. Are they trying to make them look bigger?

yes it's a huge conspiracy against m4/3rds, some of these comments are getting tenuous to say the very least. Can't those that voted for the EM-5 just be happy that their choice won.
Not interested in the m4/3rds mantra and sermons and endless posts of "why i bought the EM-5", some of it comes across a bit smarmy and justification for their buying choices.
2013 is here and lets see what new and exciting products us consumers can spend out fiscally challenged money on

In reply to:

PerL: Another way to look at it is that the FF trend is very strong, with some 55 percents of the votes.

it does seem the strongest trend in the voting that the FF sensor size is the most popular

YouDidntDidYou: Weird how come 2nd and 3rd place get equal coverage and 1st place coverage is near the bottom of the article???
And the winner is mentioned in the title of the article???

wow what weird remarks, it's obviously a conspiracy, if i was a DPR staff member who put this together i would be highly offended at the mere suggestion of any bias

Zerg2905: History repeating: the Tiger I (or II) had a huge 88 mm gun (like the sensor on the D800) but was a sluggish and non-reliable (mechanichally) piece of machinery. It was devastating however, but only in open field and in perfect conditions. The Pershing tank was a very good all-rounder (like the Canon 5D Mk III), but even if it was reliable, relatively quick and had a powerful gun it was perceived as "inferior" to the Tiger, and arived very late. And, in the end, the T-34 (OM-D) was the one that made the difference. Ha-haaaa... Cheers! :)

you should should see the Jagdtiger in real life, it's big and scary, no wonder they called the Typhoons to kill it. Dunno if you're in the UK or not but a trip to Bovington is a great way to spend an afternoon and see some amazing tanks.....much more fun than camera polls
ooops almost forgot I've got a picture of a nice Firefly somewhere

i just got tired of all the posts that sounded like advertisements, half of the comments could of been cut and pasted from Amazon reviews, not very creative and quite dull.

what about the allied bombing that disabled German tank production for weeks and weeks, and air superiority, nice sounding analogy based on poor factual eveidence

it took about 5 Shermans to take out a single Tiger, so with the same reasoning it would take 5 E-M5's to best a D800/E........ that's a lot of dead photographers

The Sherman kept it's crew warm in winter by catching fire easily, the T34 and Sherman relied heavily on outnumbering the German tanks, one on one neither were a match for the Panther and Tiger
