I saw a "best of 2018..." article in my "news feed"
Thanks for posting the link. I had missed the IR article when it first appeared.

Never seem so much hype for any camera models in the last 20 years.
I agree. I am not in the market for a new camera, as I think my K-3 II works fine, so I don't need to base any buying decision on these "best of" or "worst of" articles.

While I'm happy to see a variety of cameras highlighted by Imaging Resource, I'm disappointed that the reviewer(s) did not discuss their selection criteria. Last year's article (2017) provided some insight into the key qualifiers like image quality, AF performance, ruggedness, etc. Who knows how they settled on the 2018 finalists.

I thought having K-1Ii grouped in the ‘Professional Camera’ class was actually more significant than the award itself.

I suspect the deciding factor was the novelty of the upgrade service since the improved ISO performance has been (incorrectly IMO) debated versus RAW smoothing and DPS has questionable professional utility.

Nice to get the attaboy though.
