Looking at the 78% of the K-30 makes one think the camera is lacking, whereas one could easily argue that it is over-specced for its class.

Thanks for your suggestions. Our scoring system has been discussed to death here, so I won't get into that again but I'd like to say that the 78% score is actually very good for a camera in this class. I f you look into our database you'll see that this is higher than the Nikon D5100 (76%) and Canon EOS 650D (77%), and the same as the Sony SLT-A65.

Did the Sony get appropriately marked down for not having a mirror?, As by  your own marking rules its lacking, every other dslr in its class has it so it is the "standard"

Seriously though what is the difference re video and mirror missing ? both are a con to anyone wanting them ?

I think to avoid confusion you need to define some basic requirement for a camera at each price point and measure against them, mention additions/deletions but don't score against them until the're in the basic requirement.
