THEE CAMERAS BAD?... NO consumer would ever put up with that.
It seems like you are apologizing because you have to give a bad review to one of your sponsors products. Are you are afraid they will pull their banner ads?
Put on your big boy pants. Just say the camera is a dog. If they pull their ads we will notice and call them on it. I think they may have a bit more integrity than Olympus - Canon may even credit you for the find....
Just a thought.
