Robin is employed by Olympus. If there was ever any question about his impartiality, I think this comparison settles it -- and not just the obvious obfuscation over the price difference. Like his photographs, though.

He makes it clear he gets paid by Olympus Malaysia. He also makes it clear price differences elsewhere may be different, but seeing that he lives in Malaysia, what do you expect? In the USA, there is a $130 difference at Amazon. That makes it an easy choice.

If you don't trust what he has to say, let the pictures do the talking.

Come on, man ... do you think he doesn't know that the price difference is much smaller in the rest of the world? Assuming he's even being truthful about the Malaysia pricing....

He specifically mentioned the difference in price may be different in other parts of the world.  Do you really expect him to give pricing for each market?  He is a Malaysian citizen getting paid by a Malaysian company giving a review aimed at the Malaysian market because that is his job.
