Lol...and you know this how? They are no different then any other manufacturer looking for reviews.
I didn't say they are the only ones guilty of the practice
Just never base your opinions on magazine reviews (or website reviews) exclusively, that's all I wanted to say, as they're often biassed.
Prime example: one "review" came to the conclusion that the 28-200 Tamron (an early model at that) was superior in all respects to the combo 28-80 f/2.8 AF
-S Nikkor/80-200 f/2.8 AF
The "review" never mentioned optics at all, giving as "reasons" for the conclusion:
- the Tamron weighs less
- the Tamron costs less
- you never have to change lenses
