I presume the reviewer is quite serious?

The reviewer says that he/she is a pro photographer. Perhaps a pro fauxtographer.

A real pro would have done their research first before purchasing, so would most amateurs for that matter a good pro or amateur can get a good photo out of almost anything including a pinhole camera.

Also said that he's 14. How many 14 yo, professional photographers out there are there, particularly who can spend 9K for a camera. Can you spell T.R.O.L.L.?

Yes, that was one of my conclusions.

There is always someone around who HAS to put in their 2 cents worth of wooden pennies isn't there.

The other two quick reviews there look far more serious and I presume are by real people

Best solution is just to ignore them. They hate that.

He or she also has had the Nikon D2s. Look it up to see how good that camera was. I have used both of the Nikon D2 models, the x and the H. There is no S, a least not that Google could find.

If you are a member there just report the post. He's a troll, pure and simple, and the mods will take care of it if folks point it out.

No problem I joined DPReview a long time ago and had forgotten I had an account. I reported the post as a troll.

You have to give the guy the benefit of the doubt. I mean, so what if he's a troll. He's 14! He probably couldn't use the camera in the first place since it might have been his dads' LOL

I have an account at DPR...and a lifetime ban...and a skull and crossbones by my avatar saying they offer a reward for my hide...dead or alive......but prefer the former. Somehow they blamed Otis for hacking their site and destroying years of archives......he didn't do it, but I can't speak for that Devil Squirrel.

Regards!

so.. the 645D is rubbish and the Pans FS7 is really good (according to his other review). It got 4x zoom lens then you can increase it to 16x. He loves it coz at 16x the pictures are still really good.
Hmm...
