And, what's the problem with that?
Bias? Anyways, a review is a one person (one group...) point of view...
People in the industry are exited about improvements in technology. I bump on Mark Weir (Senior Marketing Manager for the Alpha division in the USA) at the Nikon Booth last October at the PPE and he was cheering the wonderful improvements on the Nikon 1 system (but we both agreed it looks like a P&S camera in many ways, hardware and software, not at the level of the 4/3 or NEX systems) specially AF speed.
In other hand, I recall the Sony REP for the Tristate area been so disappointed when the A350 arrived with its "unique" live view solution -but no Video!
People that makes a living on this (manufacturers, journalist, "reviewers", REPS, salesmen...) like products, get exited about them. One of my friends at Adorama loves the NEX7, but dislike the the Nikon V1 -and for about the same price, offer the Fuji X10 instead. Otherwise, he's a Nikon user... Bias?
I think some people are as fundamentalist as the fanboys they are against.
