For most of the English-speaking world, a decision characterized by "bias" is one tainted by prejudice in favor of or against one thing, person, or group compared with another, usually in a way considered to be unfair.

For a subset of DPR commentators, however, the evidence for bias is more subjective, to wit - someone saying something that they disagree with.

This is an amusing approach, but not one that is particularly helpful. Maybe people don't like your gear because it isn't very special, not because of some vast conspiracy.


So you actually believe that the EOS should have won two categories despite being a second rate mirrorless, with limited lenses and no 4K?? And you say that I am biased? The only person that thinks the EOS M is any good is a Canon user who already has Canon lenses. The EOS M came in at 79% on DPreview's own review as opposed to the X-E3 which got 84% and the Olympus E-M10 Mk3 which got 80%. Olympus on the other hand which kills your EOS got nothing? Sorry, I don't buy that and neither are any of the other people commenting on the poor quality of the article in the comments.

Sorry, this has nothing to do with "my gear". This has to do with writers who are either bowing to the sponsors, doing a deceptive marketing pitch for christmas sales passed off as an article or blatant incompetence.

Dude, just because someone has a different opinion than you doesn't make them biased. There is no conspiracy here.
