We can get much more objective reviews from other resources.
Since 99% of your commentaries are negatives, I can only believe that they are as biased as the ones Brian Smith have -actually, his input is more valuable that yours since it is clear he's paid for (and we still don't understand why you only have negative criticism against Sony).
And at this stage you can not really get "more objective' reviews from this cameras, mostly because bloggers or reviewers are not experienced photographers as Brian Smith (or the rest of the photographers on the Sony Artisans of Imagery program, like David McLain, Andy Katz, Cristina Mittermeier, Matthew Jordan Smith, etc) and they haven't really work with the camera, jus played around for a couple of days with it.
By trying to censor Brian Smith you are only stopping forum member to have access to valuable information from someone that had been working with this new cameras and lenses before (and deeper) than bloggers or even specialized journalist. By doing this, you can still say that the mount is plastic, even if you haven't even had the camera in our hands (or talk with someone that can really answer that question)
And, just in case no one noticed yet Barry, you have no privileges here for censoring anyone, or any information.
