The DSLR Playoffs have just began!

Welcome to the first ever DSLR Playoffs! The contestants are the top four actual cameras in our "Most Exciting Future DSLRs" polls located in the left column of this blog. Only DSLRs that are actual products are eligible for the playoffs. Future mythical cameras such as the Canon 5D Mark II, Pentax K1D, K12D, and Nikon D200s or D200x live happily in our imaginations, but they are not actual products.

Based on the total votes in our "Most Exciting Future DSLR" poll, the Nikon D3 is the #1 overall and they are facing the #4 Canon 40D. The #2 faces off the #3 in what promises to be a very interesting battle between the Nikon D300 and the Olympus E3. The poll is open for seven days and you the readers will decide the winners. The Polls are in the right column of the blog! They will close automatically one week after tip-off.

The two winners will face off in the Final, which lasts one week as well. Again, you, the readers will decide the winner and New DSLR Champion.

So now the ball is in your hands! Vote and decide the winners. If this proves to be a popular feature there will be more of these in the future!

i'm betting on the nikon d300 and or the canon 40d.. I'm a canon kiddie though so i'm routing for canon. I love the fact that the 40d hasn't bulked up at all relative to body / size.

It will be interesting to see how it plays out! The last time we had so much excitement in this segment was when the first wave of $2000-ish DSLRs came out about five years ago.

Poll-wise the 40D has its work cut out for it since it's only a vote and people don't have to trade-off $1400 vs $5000.
