I wonder why they never considered the M good enough to devote resources to reviewing it.

Not sure.

But sometimes I've wondered if there is some manufacturer pressure from manufacturers to not review 'imperfect' products.

Because detailed reviews of a company's products from such a high-profile website could result in a big headache for the manufacturers to move stock. It wouldn't surprise me if it goes on, but I am not in any way suggesting that it does. It just wouldn't surprise me.

Help me understand how a DPR analysis now will help you one way or the other well over a year after the camera has been available and the camera having been thoroughly investigated? Thanks.

I'm not sure if your response was supposed to be directed at me or the topic-starter. I'll answer anyway.

I am not so much looking for a review to influence my decisions (the price does that pretty well, and other sites have done their run-downs) but it's more of a "I wonder why they haven't..."-type of thing.

Speaking for myself only, of course.

Speaking for myself, it would be good for a DPR take but not necessary. I do get perplexed when some members seem beset by angst over not having DPR test on a camera they are interested in. So, when the topic comes up I find myself trying to get at just what the big deal is.

Hey, folks, DPR isn't the only game in town nor is it the Holy Grail of camera testing. It is good but others fill the void they leave.
