When the top 25 pictures were chosen from the all the challenges from 2013, the finalists can only be described as spectacular photography that we should all aspire to.

Of the top 9, four were taken by E-M5s which shows us what those cameras can do. I am not saying the E-M5 is responsible for the best photography (photographers are), but the many of best photographers pick the E-M5 and (end up in the top 10 of they year). With all the "camera of the year" awards even more are picking the E-M1.

You keep repeating that, but how does this prove anything?

Topics drive top photo challenges, and the 'best' camera is the one that you have with you at that moment. Any camera could have gotten the top challenge, these images do not appear to challenge the camera, nor the photographer.

So, 4 out of top 9, how many out of top 25 then? And what were the other entries?

Maybe m43 shooters are just more active trying to prove their point. I wish that they would shoot more and frequent these forums less. Or, if they frequent here, at least let images to the talking and stop the mumbo jumbo.

but the many of best photographers pick the E-M5

link please?
