You can't trust Consumer Reports opinion on cameras. Back in the day, when the majority of Pros were using the Nikon F, Consumer Reports said it was the worst camera.
If you gave Consumer Reports a Canon 1D X to test, they wouldn't like it. They know nothing of photography, and treat cameras like toasters or hair dryers.
Actually, you can trust them, you just need to know who they are rating products for. A My Nikon F would be a horrible experience for a general consumer, as would a D1X.
It would be really poor advice to recommend that a ordinary Consumer looking for a camera buy a D1 X. It is for Pros as was the Nikon F.
A Sony RX100 III likewise is not a top camera for a ordinary consumer who expects a 5-1 zoom range. It does not even cover portrait focal lengths, its pretty much a enthusiast camera. That does not mean it isn't a fine camera, just that its not the best pick for a general consumer.
While this defense of CU may have merit for cameras due to complexity, I stopped caring what they said about most anything many years ago when they did loudspeakers (plug and play--no user complexities to deal with) and their worst rated speaker was the same won that was winning awards in the audio world. Apparently didn't have enough "boom" and "sizzle" for them.
