So you are asking people to vote for a certain camera? I'm pretty sure that's unethical.


Besides let's say hundreds of people read your thread, dutifully comply, and the EM-5 somehow beats the D800. Wouldn't that be a hollow victory?

Oh yes, so hollow. It'd just ruin my holidays.

And what if you like the GH3 better? Or do you want people to just pad the numbers?

Ah, no - if someone prefers the GH3, they should certainly vote for it. I believe Mr. Andy (although I don't claim to speak for him) was suggesting that those who do think the E-M5 should win should also go and cast their votes for it.

I've gone a step further, however. I've set up a project at Mechanical Turk that pays $0.10 per E-M5 vote. I'm willing to spend up to $2,500 to see the E-M5 come out on top. It'll be a glorious day when the E-M5 is crowned the unopposed king of all cameras, ever, in all of history, and the rest of the manufacturers bow down to their new master, shutting up shops, since no better camera can ever be made.
