This years shortlist for camera and lens of the year

Its that time of year again. When I get around to thinking what are my camera and lens of the year from amongst all those I've used. I know, it's just too exciting, but you'll just have to wait until the end of the year for my final verdict!!

This years short listed cameras are:-

Nikon D7100
Panasonic G6
Fuji X-E2

This years short listed lenses are:-

Fuji 18-55mm
Panasonic 14-140mm
Olympus 17mm f/1.8

There is also a further catergory for accessory of the year which consists of just one item, so that is something that is settled. I invented the catergory purely to write again about how good I think this is.

Metabones Speed Booster.

I've pretty much made up my mind, but need a bit more time to finally decide.

In the meantime, why not share your personal 'gear of the year' choices over at the soundimageplus readers group on Google+.
