I think there is a much simpler explanation. He just didn't like the camera, that's why he wrote a negative critique.

Fair enough if he didn't like it for stills, and had confined his comments only to that aspect.   But he wades in on the video also ("The target market of videographers are bound to be unhappy as rolling shutter artefacts are terrible...") when he barely used that aspect of the camera, and admitted to knowing little about it.

It's difficult for me to have any kind of opinion about this because I don't know the circumstances, but I can quote his comment under the article:

"Based on the number of comments on this issue, I’m starting to think the loan body might have been early firmware – it was from a friend who in turn had it on loan from Panasonic…I stand corrected if this is not the case. It’s also possible I just had a strange combination of settings that wasn’t happy…"

This might explain part of his experience.
