Breitling65 is alleging fraud and bribery. Those would be crimes.
Nikon, Canon and Dxo have grounds to sue Breitling65 for libel, even though I'm sure they will not.
My perception was he was speculating, a very big difference. Even though we American's seem to love the idea of suing somebody, most such cases are laughed out of court before they ever get "in".
Furthermore, there exists a strong historical "precedent" of publications accepting "gifts" from manufacturers and distributors, with the mfgs intent of receiving preferential treatment along the way. Remember, a website, a magazine, a news paper, TV "news" broadcast is under no obligation to print the truth, facts or only "proven data". If you ever watch the news, you would immediately become aware of this. DXO is no different.
