|2. Nikon Coolpix P100 (previously #2) – Nikon’s flagship ultrazoom is not far behind the SX20 in second place. The P100 was a very strong performer in our testing with a 26x optical zoom and full 1080p HD video. Nikon Coolpix P100 Review | Nikon Coolpix P100 User Opinions|
|3. Canon Rebel T2i (previously #5) – Jumping up a few more spots is the flagship Rebel, the T2i. It’s still a great value with an 18 megapixel CMOS sensor and plenty of premium features handed down the line from the 7D. Canon Rebel T2i Review | Canon Rebel T2i User Opinions|
|5. Olympus E-5 (first time on the list) – The freshly-reviewed E-5 makes its way into the top ten for the first time. The rugged follow-up to the E-3 features a 12.3 megapixel sensor, a 3.0-inch flip-out LCD and in-camera image stabilization. Olympus E-5 Review | Olympus E-5 User Opinions|
