If i was an APS landscape shooter one of the 24mp options along with the Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 would make a wonderful choice. There were some rather underhand tactics to gain votes for the E-M5 such as some people trawling other internet forums to attempt to get people to sign up to DPreview just to vote for it :-). Not that I would take such polls very seriously anyway.


The fact that people went to those levels to recruit voters and the fact that people were willing to be requited shows how much enthusiasm there is for the camera. Besides, politicians do the same type of thing when trying to get elected. Are those elections then not valid?

I think your signature line rather clearly explains why you think this to be a reasonable action Though to put it into your political comparison it would be akin from going to one county and asking people there to sign up for living in another county just to sway a vote.
