Is there a reason why it seems that every camera magazine and guru on the planet has posted their review of the Nex-7 except dpreview? Is it being held back in deference to Sony Marketing? Are there rolling changes being incorporated in the OS that cause testing delays?

I pre-ordered the KIT via Amazon on Sep 2nd and now believe it won't be shipping before sometime in January(?) - apparently following the body-only deliveries. As a loyal Sony customer (828, R-1). I would at least enjoy reading your review over the holidays if nothing else! Thanks for the opportunity to rant...

Ok, I'll bite. I'll be the first to toss around an unsubstantiated theory...

The lack of a review is because dpreview wants to wait until the NEX-7 is back up to full production (or at least near full production) to ensure they have a good sample in which to run through their very thorough testing procedures. The last thing they want is to have to post a review and then put a disclaimer saying "we'll update......when we get another sample...". Although this could start some interesting flame wars among the various forums - increasing dpreview's hit rate, hmmm.

Wow was I wrong. Never been happier to be so.
