    Hi Karen,
    How do we know what to vote for? Is there a list somewhere of the 2015 introductions?
    Cheers, Oly

    I suppose that any product of the year has to be useable by most photographers.
    My suggestion of the Nikkor 200-500 hasn't got a chance, because of its limitation to users of one marque. I can't even publish any pictures yet because I have only owned one for less than 24 hours but my initial impression, based on tests on photographs of little brown birds in the garden on a dull wet stormy day is that this lens provides a tool which previously cost four times the cash. This lens is only half a stop faster than competitors from third party manufactures (I have a 6.3 Sigma) but that extra half stop does wonders for AF. Dynamic 3D AF works over the full area covered by the AF system. Provided it doesn't fail under mild abuse then I reckon that Nikon have even managed a winner. I was about to give up on them.

    Thanks Mark but I think they contain pre-2015 stuff plus kit that's not yet available. Cheers, Oly

    My candidate is the most useful piece of kit except for a camera that I've come across, the Manfrotto 405 geared head. I just cannot work out how I managed for so long without one and I recommend it unconditionally to anyone who uses their camera on a tripod.

    Wouldn't disagree, Andrew, but I think it was available before 2015. Cheers, Oly
