Mike Johnston (The Online Photographer) finally, FINALLY, picks his camera of the year, shows that this year almost everybody agrees on which camera it should be.

No, we won't spoil it, coz we at Estiasis love Mike, and we want youto head over to TOP and read his award rant that circles mostly around American football:

""Best of" awards have always annoyed me because of a principle I'm highly aware of, yet which doesn't, to my knowledge, have a name. Namely: the closer to equal two things are, the less important it should be to rank them, but the more important it seems to be to humans to do so. So if two DACs (digital to analogue converters) are almost indistinguishable

from each other, you won't see people saying "ah, just get one or the other, it doesn't matter." More likely, you'll see people arguing strenuously over why one is great and the other is crap. If two Olympic skaters skate hell bent for leather for three minutes and one of them crosses the finish line .02 seconds sooner, that one gets a "gold" medal and the other one gets a "silver" medal, even though it might have come down to where their feet were in their motions at just the critical moment. Whereas to me, what an .02 second difference means is that each of them is just as good as the other. The difference is simply below the threshhold of significance."
