Awards for D700, 5DMk2, G1, EX-FC100 by Camera Press Club Grand Prix in Japan
It's award time! Cameras (okay, camera company representatives) were handed awards by the Japanese Camera Press Club Grand Prix. Different categories made it possible for various cameras to go "home" with their own awards.
The winners include the Canon 5D Mark II [reviews] taking the grand prize, and the Nikon D700 [reviews] winning the equivalent of the "reader's choice" award. The D700 was also the winner of our 2008 Reader's Choice Award which was commemorated with this special Cameras of the Year boutique shop.
It is interesting that the critics vote was:
#1 Canon 5D Mark II
#2 Panasonic G1
#3 Sony Alpha A900
...while the people (mail-in ballots) voted:
#1 Nikon D700
#2 Sony A900
#3 Nikon D3X
#4 Panasonic G1
#5 Canon 5D Mark II
