James A Rinner: Two full frames and a micro 4/3 are taking over 62% of the votes! The Canon and the Nikon may produce better pictures for the pixels peepers but the OM-D EM-5 is definately the "Camera of the Year" when it comes to being a game changer for many photographers. I bet many of those Canon and Nikon voters also own an OM-D!

Much more than the IQ that changed in the M43 zone when it came to the OM-D! Take a look at the other replies for those things. This little camera is big on features and image quality. The smallness disappears once you use it for longer than just holding it in a camera store. There may be a few things that it does not do well but it excels in the rest! I have used a lot of cameras in the last 52 years and the OM-D has become this magnifcent tool in my hand that seems to have been lost since I sold my Hasselblads.

James A Rinner: When you say it is a beginner's challenge does that mean a non-beginner cannot enter? I have some shots done with point and shoots (Olympus C-2000 and C-2500L) that I would like to enter. These were taken about ten years ago and show how a limited camera does not limit the image.

Thanks for the exception. I will do as you ask.

The C2500L weighs 490 grams without batteries. Bummer...

James A Rinner: That is not an impossible rule. I just had to search my 600 images of sunflowers to find one that qualifies. Since you are changing the rules now it makes me want to change my entry.

I can live with the changes and it seems like others are too.
