The reviewer has a vested interest in wanting you to like it and therefore go and buy it. So my point is that it makes it difficult to trust and therefore not very useful.

So what should he do then? Not review it?

Yes or quit Olympus.

Wong is upfront about the fact that he is paid by Olympus and wants you to like/buy the lens. He tells you about his vested interest in every review.

Why shouldn't we want the lens? It can be used to create great-looking pictures.

I didn't say that you shouldn't.
