My Take:

Other than one winner / catagory I’d pretty much 100& agree with the EISA winners list for 2016-17  there certainly isn’t too much controversy and the winning products do represent best of the best.

I don’t doubt that most Nikon D5 owners may take issue with the Canon EOS 1DX mark 2 scooping the top spot for professional DSLR but on balance feature for feature I’d say the Canon is just ( and I mean just) the more complete work horse?
