Camera and lens of the year

The Sony NEX-5n - Last years winner of the Soundimageplus camera of the year - 2011.

Its about that time again. Its getting close for me to decide the winner of the unprestigious, unsoughtafter and completely unimportant Soundimageplus camera of the year award. The criteria for entry is simple - I have to have bought and used the camera, the camera has to have been available to buy and I have to have bought it within the year (2012) plus I have had to have used it for at least 3 months of the year.

The criteria for getting the award is again simple. If I could only keep one camera out of all the ones I own, which one would it be. This year to make it EVEN MORE EXCITING!! I've included a lens catergory as well.

The runners and riders are as follows:-
