On article Dpreview Users' Poll: Best Camera of 2012? (1507 comments in total)

"better" is highly personal.

My wife and I have used Canon cameras for years. My wife just sold her 5D and all her lovely L glass lenses and got an OM-D EM-5 because it gave her similar performance without tiring her arms or the bag breaking her shoulder. She's taking more pictures now 'cause it's easy to bring the camera along.

I am a sea kayaker and after killing my 40D with salt water offshore in Maine I was bidding on sealed-body 7Ds on eBay when I took a good look at her new "toy". That is no toy. I bought a black one (to distinguish it easily from her silver one). It fits much better in a dry bag on my 18 3/5" curved deck and performs at least as well as the 7D in image quality and low light performance. It does better for stabilization (important for me, strangely enough).
