Thou shalt not believe in false scores of DxoMark


Thou shalt remember that only lens scores from DxOMark and any overall summary scores are false and thou shalt believe in their individual sensor chart scores, for they are true and good.

+1 

With related commandments/corollaries:
1) You shall ignore any comment that says that you should disregard DxO because their single number scores are meaningless (whoa, meta! -- read as Ted Logan) and you shall not make such comments.

2) You shall ignore any comment that says camera A is better than camera B because it has a higher DxO (sub-) score, and you shall not make such comments.  Same goes for "lens A is better than B because it has a higher resolution score", etc.

3) You shall remember that the DxO charts are just one of many measurements of camera quality; the camera system is much more than the sensor (or lens), and DxO isn't even the only group doing measurements on the sensor (or lens).

(Though I don't know anyone else who gives low-level or resolution-corrected results as well or for as many sensors as DxO.)

I think we have written a CR bible here rather than ten commandments!

Jayson 8:21 And on that day the sun slung low in the sky, but yet upon the horizon were three slowly approaching figures of unknown origin. Surely had the traveller been carrying his trusted 200-400L he might have been able to discern the faces of these shifting shapes. Alas 'twas not the case, for he had been on a pilgrimage to the holy land, with merely his nifty fifty in tow … for creative practice and to rediscover his humble beginnings.

Thou shall need a 24-70II or a 70-200 II for getting any decent picture, even that of a worn out doorknob!

so now that we have a list of commandments, what happens should we sin?  Will we be cursed to use Vivitar for eternity?
What I do today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it.

Your camera will be permanently and irrevocably set to green square mode.  Some would call that hell.  :o

Perhaps, but to be made to read temple guy's posts for all eternity would be true damnation  ;)

All your white lens will turn black so they look like everyone else's lens.   ;D
