now where did i put that bag of salt...
I've never even cared for DxO marks tbh, and dont get why anyone does, photographys an art, not a game of top trumps >.>
I can agree with you on that, but on the other hand, I'm glad such scientific studies exists. If it were not for them, who would scrutinize the camera makers and raise flags when their products don't match the hype (or the price for that matter)? Otherwise it's all subjective, relative, like art as you said. They could release a POS and brandish it like the best thing ever and all we can do is fight and debate in forums based on our feelings.
This is how we put these camera makers in line.
