Flipping through a magazine yesterday and came across the results of the 2012 Technical Image Press Association awards. Best DSLR (professional) goes to the, as yet, unavailable 1D X. Just for the wild optimisim that they show I kinda wish the 1D X gets delayed 'til January. That'll teach 'em! And at this rate that isn't too far fetched.http://www.tipa.com/english/XXII_tipa_awards_2012_13042012103433.php?iExpand1=70
Anyone else know of gear winning top awards before the finished production article hits the buying public?
One thing that makes me a wee bit suspicious of the whole TIPA award thing is that just about every manufacturer gets an award - best premium camera goes to Leica. Who defines what "premium" means?
Still, kept me amused for a few minutes.
