    The OM-D won the poll by 1.2%: http://www.dpreview.com/polls

    Hopefully this will come out neatly formatted:

    Finished: Dec 31, 2012, Votes: 14807
    Olympus OM-D EM-5 23.3% (3457 votes)
    Nikon D800/E 22.1% (3273 votes)
    Canon EOS 5D Mark III 14.4% (2133 votes)
    Nikon D600 7.8% (1156 votes)
    Sony Cyber-shot RX100 7.1% (1056 votes)
    Fujifilm X-Pro 1 6.2% (914 votes)
    Sony Cyber-shot RX1 5.6% (831 votes)

    The rest were all below 5%, including the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3.
    Sure, this is just a popularity contest, but I figure popularity
    with shutterbugs can only help Olympus recover from the horrible
    year that they have been having. I want them to continue to exist
    so that they can keep offering their micro-4/3 lenses.

    The OM-D is the first 4/3rds camera that's gotten plaudits from some
    of the hard-core FF users. A lot of Nikon FF users have bought it as
    a second camera. Though the Olympus people are outspoken and no doubt
    voted more enthusiastically than other brand buyers, the camera does
    represent a substantial step above the other 4/3rds units out there.

    Some professionals have taken it up as well.
