I'll tell you why there are no "shills" in these forums...

It is because all the FUD in these forums actually discourages anyone from buying anything, ever.

The OM-D "hum" fiasco is only the latest. The camera has been in the hands of reviewers and influential bloggers and well known shooters for ages, hundreds of pages have been written about it, the vast majority positive, almost no-one has ever noticed a slight hum from the system, and anyone that did considered it so ordinary they never even thought to mention it. But all it takes is one person to notice it and casually mention it in a forum, and suddenly it is an "Issue".

We also have another chap who can't get on with the perfectly normally placed lugs, and threads from people who tried it in a shop and don't like the button layout etc etc.

The more people take an interest and chat, the more ludicrous non-faults people find.

If camera companies paid participants in forums (an insane idea in the first place) they'd pay for them to be disrupted and shut down.

Hmmm. Why am I thinking of Tedolph?
