MFiftysomething: I had a TG4 auto modes kept messing up and there is no manual control -same on the TG5 -how can this be camera of the year -is the article sponsored?

Correct, but the comment implied that Jeff selected this camera because he was paid off, not because it perfectly suits his need when travelling. Based on his description of his intended use, this camera is indeed perfect for the stated use. It's a great choice. For him, not you, I understand that.

MFifty, have you ever used one?

Shlomo Goldwasser: Time for at least a 1inch sensor?

If they do, I'm in. Logical next step for Oly in this series.

I'm surprised at the negative comments. I have a TG4 and it's excellent. Capabilities that go beyond any phone cam. Great JPG quality, too. Good choice.

dmanthree: Good comparison, but lenses? A tossup? Even considering Nikon's vast array of lenses? I don't get that one.

Richard, I read that, but still don't understand how it's a tossup. Just an opinion piece, I know...

I'm betting that list is 90% marketing. Regardless, my original point was that the Nikon has a far greater lens set available than the Sony. I still think that.

i guess my interpretation was that this poll would include all cameras available as new in 2017. Too bad, it leaves out some excellent choices.

Did Nikon actually say *not* to use them, or just suggest lenses that are the best match?

Wubslin: As a non-owner of both I can say that the non-ownership experience is exceptional, with the minor caveat that my wallet is weighing me down quite a bit.

The dollars in my wallet are worth twice what a Nikon owner's wallet contains.

Well, for me, the lens selection, quality, and depth of the system simply blows the Sony out of the water. A comparison shouldn't assume that the reader doesn't want or need certain lenses, should it?

Was this only for cameras released this year? If so, what sense does that make? You can't consider anything pre 2017?

Beckler8: What about the overall point that there's no way DSLR's will still be mainstream in 5-10 years (or sooner). That mirrorless is the next evolution is as obvious as film to digital. You may want a new camera anyway in that time frame, but if you're building a lens collection you may want to consider this. Will Nikon mirrorless F be compatible with standard F lenses?

That may, or may not be true, but it has no bearing on what camera you choose *today.* If you were shooting action, and needed the AF capability and high speed teles offered by Nikon, would you choose something else because the DSLR *might* be done in a few years?

Max Iso: 5 Nikons on the list. Hmm....

I'm a 63 year old mirrorless user who grew up on film starting in 1967. I guess I don't fit the stereotype. Honestly, I still don't see the need to differentiate. Just doesn't make any sense to me. They're all cameras.

entoman it was directed at you, but when comparing cameras I usually ignore whether or not it has a mirror. The Nikons are all good cameras, as are most of the Canons listed here. But the M series? Well, they lost me there. It's hard to believe that their advertisers didn't receive some consideration for this list.

Gimli son of Gloin: Don't be mad that your favourite brand did not make to the list. Be mad at your favourite brand for not releasing anything worth buying.

I thought the same thing; their sponsors have pretty much dictated this list. Nikon and Canon have some lopsided representation for some strange reason.
