DP Reviews of 5N and F3 inconsistent?
Thanks. That explains a lot. Just goes to show, there is a good bit of subjectiveness in these reviews along with the test results (which also have some variance).
Another things to consider is that the NEX F3 is coming a year after the NEX 5N review.
The bar gets raised.
If the Samsung NX20 had come out 3 years ago, it would have gotten a gold rating and been best in class. But coming out in 2012, it falls well short of many of its contemporaries.
