There was a lot of movement in our top ten list this month. Familiar models re-surfaced, new models left the top ten. And that makes sense, given the spirit of lively competition that's going around right now. The Fujifilm X-Pro1, in athletic terms, is a true champ. It has classic style and a pared-down, no-nonsense interface that enthusiast shooters are loving right now. No wonder it made the pole-vault leap into the number one spot. All the way down the line, DCR readers found something to love about each of these models - take a look at last month's most popular models.

1. Fujifilm X-Pro1 (back on the list)
The Michael Phelps of interchangeable lens cameras? Sure. The X-Pro1 is almost universally adored for its retro touches, hybrid viewfinder and high-quality lens system. Intended for the advanced user, the X-Pro1 boasts a 16 megapixel CMOS sensor of the APS-C variety.
2. Nikon Coolpix P510 (first time on the list)
The Nikon Coolpix is primed for action with a 3.0-inch articulated LCD, built-in EVF, 42x optical zoom lens and 1080 HD video recording. It packs in the equivalent of a 1000mm telephoto lens - easily the biggest on the market.
3. Nikon Coolpix S9300 (previously #1)
If our top ten list was an Olympic competition, the S9300 would snag the bronze. It's medal-worthy with an 18x optical zoom lens tucked into a svelte little chassis. It also offers a 3.0-inch high-resolution LCD and in-camera GPS tracking.
4. Canon PowerShot ELPH 300 HS (previously #2)
The Canon PowerShot 300 HS spent a long time at the top of our monthly Most Popular list and it's finally settling down. Don't count it out though, it's a real contender with 5x optical zoom starting at a wide 24mm angle of view and full 1080 HD video at a bargain hunter's price point.
5. Canon EOS 5D Mark III (previously #4)
Canon's 5D Mark III is about as serious of a competitor as it gets. It's a full frame pro DSLR with a new 61-point AF system, up to 6 fps burst shooting and a large 100% coverage optical viewfinder.
