Can't review everything...

I think I have this right: The M was introduced in July 2012 and previewed by DPR. Since that time, a quick count shows that DPR has reviewed over 100 new cameras. I wonder why they never considered the M good enough to devote resources to reviewing it. One year later it appears to be among the cameras attracting the most interest.

You see one of these threads in just about every Body specific forum ...there are hundreds of cameras released every year and it would probably take a lot more resources to review every one. ...and the M was pretty much known to be dead on arrival with the AF ...the popularity of the M has just spiked with the advent of the price reduction and firmware update so don't count the review out, but reset the clock from the firmware/price update.
