Everybody wins an Eisa ward (does it make sense?)

Th EISA (European Imaging & Sound Association) is a unique association of 50 special interest magazines from 19 European countries. And every year they do award the best photo cameras and lenses. The problem I have with Eisa is that they created so many different categories that it easy for every manufacturer to win at least one of the prizes. Olympus for example won the “European All Weather Camera 2011-2012” with the Olympus TOUGH TG-810. And Panasonic won the “European Compact System Camera 2011-2012” with the Panasonic LUMIX DMC-G3.
See all categories and winners at http://www.eisa.eu/awards/3/photo.html
Like last year, and two years ago and three years ago (and so on) everybody won a price! Nikon, Canon, Sony, Panasonic, Olympus, Fuji, Samsung, Pentax, Tamron, Sigma, Casio…sounds a bit like a joke or no? That said the Panasonic G3 is certainly the best mirrorless camera announced in 2011!
