It is not impartial at all.

I can't see your point.

The reviewer has a vested interest in wanting you to like it and therefore go and buy it. So my point is that it makes it difficult to trust and therefore not very useful.

I don't know how he'll change in the future, but he's only recently become an Olympus employee, and has promised to 'tell it as it is'. His credibility is enhanced in my eyes by his various statements about Olympus lenses that he doesn't like (eg 17mm).

He is one of the main reasons I have an E-M5!

I was withholding judgement until I've seen the way he handles the comparison with the Panny-Leica 25mm.
