So what should he do then? Not review it?

Yes or quit Olympus.

Bollocks.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with employee reviews unless they pretend to be impartial or hide their interests. Robin does neither.

Agreed. There's nothing wrong with what Robin does, just as there's nothing wrong with being skeptical of his (or anyone's) results. This disclaimer precedes the article:

Important Note:

1) I am an Olympus Malaysia employee.

2) This review is a user-experience based review, from a photography enthusiast's point of view.

3) All images were shot in RAW and converted to JPEG via Olympus Viewer 3. Noise Filter = OFF, Gradation Normal, Saturation, Contrast and Sharpness set to default "0". Image Setting Natural, Auto White Balance with Warm Color OFF.

4) The images were almost straight out of camera, with slight exposure (brightness/contrast balance) tuning and white balance tweak.

Barring any evidence of intentional bias, I'll take the man at his word. Working for an organization doesn't automatically mean you're a shill for them.
