Good stuff. It does seem they were creative with their categories to get in a few more cameras, but we'll take it.
Guess I hadn't seen the G5x before - that camera is really.. er.. having an identity crisis!

Don't mean to be a party pooper, but TIPA is notorious for putting an award on every camera that they can get their hands on. Check jpzk's link for the list of categories and winners and you will see that cameras that have not received a TIPA award are the absolute minority.

It's nice to see the K-1 get recognised, but the fact that almost every FF camera released recently got a reward somewhat mars the impression.

I think it is nice that the K-1 received the award, and that it is well deserved.

I think it is well deserved and I like the fact that they break out some different specialized function like Video SLR.


Did find it interesting that in the non-mirrorless section all of the lenses are Sigma or Tamron 3rd party. In mirrorless they were all from the original brands like Sony, Panasonic and Fuji. Nothing really.
