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.

Almost every review has a vested interest in getting you to like and buy a product. Advertiser supported sites, like this, (although IMO DP Review reviews are pretty fair - I may not agree with them but they seem objective), have a vested interest in getting you to buy the camera or lens or whatever. When was the last time you read a critical review in something like Popular Photography?

Robin Wong states his Olympus affiliation at the top of the review. If that taints the review you can stop reading at that point. If not you can continue reading and make your own decisions based on the information Robin (or any other reviewer) provides.
