No, we haven't overlooked the problem, but it appears that you have, and that you've just had a brutal wake-up call.
Welcome to the real world, where you can't expect perfection, but you'll always have to check, double-check and cross-reference multiple sources, if you want to make an even half-informed decision.
Sorry Jani, but exactly what is the problem I overlooked? That I expected the the review or "first look" to reveal flaws? Yes, I expected more based on MR's previous reviews/introductions. I thought I was jaded and cynical enough, but I expected more here.
As for welcoming me to the "real world", I live there all the time. I live in the US which is a real world of hucksters, shysters, marketers selling vapor ware, etc. I'm a far more discriminating buyer and photographer than you can imagine, but I still would like to believe that there are honest reports out there that can be relied upon.
Don't let my few posts here give you the idea that I'm new to photography or this site. And as for your comments about would I buy a, b, c; that's just crazy; I'd also never buy a $5k camera without more information, but I don't know anyone that's going to give me the camera for an extended period.
Besides, for your information, I actually briefly used the M8 a week before this "review" blew up so I'm not ignorant of the camera, it's features, abilities, etc.
