This is an extremely unique challenge!
Airless: The poll obviously has a huge bias in favor of cameras released in the first half of the year whichmakes the results kind of meaningless.
I agree, please shortlist any of the Sigma Merrills. Won't win (as much due to too few users than anything else), but it'd be interesting to see the number of votes.
Thanks for your kind comments noiseless and cmantx!
