I am sure many viewers look to your reviews before buying a new model. I certainly have done in the past. However your review of the Olympus E-M10, review in progress Jan 2014, or Nikon dF review in progress Nov 2013 leaves a bit to be desired. I have now gone to DP Review first for reviews and not Camera Labs as I used to do. I think more lens review would be grate as often you have more than lens using the same body. I recently bought the Panasonic (Leica) 15mm as a result of your review. The lens receives the image, the body records that image.

Hi araldite1066, cameralabs is pretty much a one man operation - just me, with occasional point-and-shoot reviews by Ken and Nikon lens reviews by Thomas. You can't compare a one-man site with something like dpreview which is owned by Amazon.com and staffed by lots of full-time writers and coders.

As such there's only so much I can do. I'm also publishing what I believe are the longest and most detailed reviews out there, normally in excess of 20,000 words each. These take me several weeks to complete.

As such i can't review everything, and there's also the additional factor of supply. For some reason, Olympus didn't send me an EM10 to test, and so far Nikon have not supplied a Df, although perhaps the latter is because of my already negative comments about it.

I post a list of cameras I'm working on - or trying to work on - to give an indication of what I'm trying to do next, but that's all it is.

I hope to continue my current mix of camera and lens reviews.

Gordon

Thanks for replying in person, you would not get that with DP Review. I bought a E-M10 and found it to be a very good camera as a backup to my E-M1. The ECG-1 grip is an excellent addition. I am now trying out the new Tamron 14-150.
Best wishes
David
