Like to buy a Passport Sling III but it is not on sale any where yet. Can't even find it in their own website!
Bulky, slow to deploy, and HOT in the summer. I won't buy one no matter how inexpensive it is.
Vinc T: Where are the pictures of this interesting camera?OK, the Olympus website, OK!
Can I start a web page from bottom up? I didn't know that! :)They were not there! You posted 12 minutes later than I did.
This 9mm is a must buy for me! The 25mm looks good too!

Richard Franiec: "Gear in this story" tabulation results (own it, want it, had it) clearly shows the bias in voting. I think that this poll result cannot be taken seriously by someone looking for honest guidance to pick the best of the best, simply because the majority of respondents have no means to test all the contenders.
Since DPR have access to all the products listed, I would like the staff to share their own opinion on each product expressing their collective feelings and clearly saying why. This could be more interesting and revealing than going back and forth with "fanbois" rants.
"I would still like to know what is the most significant product related to photography in 2013 in opinion of people who have basically unlimited access to every piece of new gear and why. Is this too much to ask?"That was not your original question.
topstuff: Interesting in that it tells us that IQ is not the top priority for people.
It also reveals the truth that people generally look at photography through an iPad or tablet and don't print large anymore.
It also reveals that a large percentage of shooters only really take pictures in undemanding situations, with good light and conditions.
Why else would a MFT camera win? ;)
Do we buy sports cars based on speed alone? Most people don't.
ragmanjin: This poll has already been answered by the previous polls, so I can't help but question the motive behind it — especially since, as far as I'm aware, this is the first year one of the leading cameras (let alone the all-out winner) hasn't already received its full review.Pentax K-3....................2529 votes (31.4% of the 8054 votes in its poll)Fuji X100s.....................2423 votesOlympus OM-D E-M1......2238 votesSony RX100...................1555 votesSigma 1.8/18-35............1331 votesI hate to keep kicking a dead horse but is this an attempt to avert attention while you finish up with the K-3?I mean no disrespect, DPR, I just feel the question needs to be put out there. If you guys were just waiting for the firmware update or the release of the Flucard for wireless tethering, that's totally fine. It would be nice if you would let us know that sort of thing is all I'm saying.
Some or even many of us gave our votes to BOTH K-3 and E-M1 since they were in different categories. This is a different poll since we can only choose one of them.

utomo99: How to take this photos ? Any tips and tricks. how to reduce the glass effect ?
- Turn off all the lights in the room and block all those coming from outside the room. - Block direct light from the lighting elements (tubes, bulbs, LEDs, whatever) of your aquarium from entering your eyes and the lens. - Shoot at an angle to the glass. Since fish scales grow at an angle to the fish body, try shooting at an angle both from the head side and from the tail side to see the difference.- It would be best if your camera has an articulating screen. - And use manual focusing. Fine tune the distance by moving your hand/arm in and out. - If failed, try again immediately. Not try again some other nights. If the height is right, sit on a chair and try taking photos continuously for 1-2 hours. You will be an expert after that.- No need to use an polarizer.- Good luck!
Bettas are slow moving and taking their photos is quite easy. Try guppies!
How can I view the results without voting? I am not familiar with the cameras here and I will not vote.
Lucky DSLR won't be trumped by Mirroless this year!
What is the vote results so far? Can't see it anywhere.
This list is ridiculous. (The other five round-ups are fine IMHO.) This list just does' nt make much sense to me.
Take X-M1 for example. it is categorized in DPR's own review as an "Mid Range Interchangeable Lens Camera / DSLR" here:http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/fujifilm-x-m1/12And now it has become an entry level mirrorless?
onlooker: dual12 wrote:"A gold award means nothing."
Barney Britton responded:"@ dual12 - really?"
I also agree with dual12. Barney, DPR produces great reviews with a lot of data points. One needs to read them carefully and make up his mind based on how the camera fits his needs. I remember long time ago Olympus 3040Z did not get "Highly Recommended" (equivalent of "Gold" back in those days). Yet, based on the info in the review I bought it, and it was the best compact I ever had, period - for me.
@Plastek, so a Honda driver/owner will never give a gold award to a Porsche? LOL!
benmlee: Here is a summary on size of mirrorless with a one to one comparison. http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3539258?page=8#forum-post-52104024In summary, lens for mirrorless weight about the same for DSLR if you compare sensor size to sensor size. The only advantage you get with mirrorless is smaller body. However, because the camera use battery much faster, you will have to carry an extra battery. The net gain may not be as much as you think in the showroom.What about these tiny M4/3 mirrorless. Well, the small size is not because it is a mirrorless, but because the sensor is small. You are not getting something for nothing. You do get the disadvantage of smaller sensor. Whether smaller sensor is enough or not is a different question.
The green line of your graph does show the significant weight advantage of m4/3 over APS and Full Frame cameras.
KTClown: Small, but Serious.The PL5 should be on the list. Same sensor as the more expensive EM5 & EM1, add the view finder and it's a good all around shooter.My opinion.
The E-PL5 may well be the winner of Entry-Level Mirrorless Camers, especially that it is now selling at $449 (e.g. Canada Henry's).
Bob Meyer: The way I read the fine print on Adobe's site this is a bait and switch deal. At the end of your first year, the price will rise to the then "normal" price, which is a heck of a lot more than $10 a month.
Your only choice, then, will be to give up PS or bite the bullet and pay through the nose. Clearly Adobe hopes you'll get so sucked into PS you'll be unwilling to give it up.
Totally meaningless. No prices ever are fixed. Discounted price, standard price, fixed price, you name it. A price won't be changed because it is called standard price? Simply BS.
Comparing to the 1.5 year old E-M5, this GX7 has nothing really extraordinary. The only special thing about it is its tilting EVF, which is meaningful to only the minority. Why should DPR award a GOLD to something just caught up with its competitor?
