Pentax doesn't send DSLR for review to Cameralabs ?

I asked a question to cameralabs in Youtube... Here is the response:

Q: Just wondering... Are you going to review the new Pentax K-30 ? - Cybersetan
A: Nope, Pentax in their infinite wisdom are the only company which doesn't send me cameras to review. - Cameralabs

See in the comment area, here:

I wonder why Pentax doesn't send DSLRs to him to be reviewed? what about DigitelRev?
Any Pentax staff care to explain?

I was wondering about that myself. I like CameraLabs, and I wondered why they never did a review on the K5.

Maybe Pentax just doesn't know about them..? Have they sent a request to Pentax?

There are hundreds of "camera reviewers" out there - some good ones may fall through the cracks. Fortunately The Camera Store isnt' one of them.

Camera labs used too but Pentax stopped sending them cameras. Kai reviewed the KR, K01, and the Q.

I wonder if a simple fan sent them a unit to use and review for a while if they would review it, i think Pentax could use the exposure and positive media from sources like camera labs and Digital Rev, simply because they get so much traffic. I don't have one myself, but i wonder if that would be against some sort of rules or terms.
