Default Too funny: Oly beats CaNikon

LOL. This is too good. the OMD-EM5 won the readers poll as camera of the year for 2012 at DP review. It beat out the D800E and 5D III.

Don't you guess the editors over there are having a fit?

Why do you think the editors care what the results were? They want site activity. Why do you think they care if Brand X users hit the <vote> button more than Brand Y users? All they really care about is people visiting the site and clicking on external links.

LOL. You haven't paid close attention to their snide comments of Olys over the past 10 years.

Steven - everyone who reads DPR thinks they're biased AGAINST the brand they own. Nothing new there. People seem to be crushed whenever a product in their brand isn't judged the best invention since the internal combustion engine.

Agree 100% - and since mine didn't even rate the list, they made a 'reel-bad-error' there

The OMD-EM5 is a popular choice, price at 1/3 the cost of a D800 and 5DMK3. great features and a retro look.

true enough
Im hearing that the poll was sponsored by Nikon though?

collateral damage includes one or two peeved Nikon accountants over at 1041 in the darkside unhappy with voter recruitment, like it matters

funny as hell really

Too funny.

It wasn't just Oly, but they never failed to zing the 4/3 format in general in the early years, basically saying that it would never be as good as the other guys. It was a lot more than just being snide over an individual camera
