Well it's like me and basketball. In HS I couldn't miss in practice from the 3 point arc. So you could say I was a great 3-point shooter. However, I never hit a 3 in a game because I never got open and wasn't even quick enough to get open. So it was actually meaningless.
We here on the forum know that this is just a sensor score. Howver, consumers don't know that and if they just read the scores they automagically assume it is a better camera. That's the problem. It isn't. Sensor is just ONE measured aspect of a camera and as a scientist, when I read their crap, it comes off to me as rather unscientific. Whether it is or isn't, it just comes off that way to me.
You can defend it all you want, but it looks like crap to me and I don't use their scores at all. Each to their own.
