Yes, that was my impression too as I started to read it. This is one of the annoying things about certain magazine reviews too. It seems there is a requirement from someone that they don't paint Olympus too good & to make sure they highlight the negatives. In other words, a bias can quite often be obvious in these reviews. Having said that, it is still interesting seeing the comparison photos etc.
I fiddle with violins (when I'm not fiddling with a camera).
