Default Best DSLR Expert

Do you know that the TIPA (Technical Image Press Association, which is 29 magazines across five continents) gave the "Best DSLR Expert" award to the Olympus E-5?

"The 12.3MP E-5 provides benefits that rival those found in some pro DSLRs - weather sealing, great functions, responsiveness, 100% viewfinder, good noise control, dual CF/SD slots, IS - and all in a rugged body ...."

No bad at all!

Thanks, Zig - that's interesting.

Am I the only one that thinks it's odd for an SD card to get "best Imaging Storage Media" (and not just for the grammatical error)? The fastest SD cards are still slower than the fastest CFs, and as far as I know the high-end cameras from all of the big boys still use CF cards.

Also, the best DSLR Professional is the Pentax 645? As far as I know, its big and the lenses are slow. Even ignoring the cost I don't think very many professionals use it outside of a studio setting.

PS: I wasn't familiar with Vanguard tripods - that one looks interesting.

I use a Vanguard ballhead on my Manfrotto tripod. Excellent performance for the money.

Even comes with two plates. I have one of the camera body and one on the tripod mount of the 50-200 SWD. Keeps the E5 and 50-200 SWD locked in wherever you set it.

I think they have just played nice and give then "best of awards" to all the leading brands in different categories.
