That's not to say that slightly rounding focal lengths is not an industry wide practice. Who can blame them for that (I certainly do not).
1st of all, I somehow doubt that DPReview can measure focal lengths well ;
How are they going about to determine front and back nodal points? They probably use a simple formula which can't really be applied and will always give (too) short focal lengths.
