We're proud and excited to announce that Dpreview has been acquired by the worlds leading online retailer, Amazon.com. Started as hobby site in 1998, dpreview.com has grown to be the number one destination for anyone interested in digital cameras and digital photography. Each month dpreview.com has seven million unique visitors (over 22 million sessions) who read over 120 million pages. "We've worked very hard over the last eight years to deliver consistently high quality content to our readers", founder Phil Askey said. "It will be fantastic to be able to expand and build on that without compromising our quality or independence. With the support and resources of Amazon we can achieve this."

I'm not sure how this will affect the site, if at all.

I can see a few more links appearing in the review sections (all to amazon of course) but hopefully the forums will remain untouched.

Amazon might also start to use the reviews on its sites??

They should do - amazon is still independant of the manufactures so unless they get a good discount to sell a camera, it is unlikely there would be any need to be biased.
