I understand what you're saying, but it seems to me that some folks are overly concerned about that score.

You and I, and probably most people that shoot Pentax go and actually read the review, ignore the overall score, deciding for themselves what is important and what is not.

The majority of buyers, however, will fast-forward to the summary page or just look at a ranked list of models. Dealers will point to scores to make their lives easier and customers trust scores.

That's partially why I take issue with the Conclusions page not discussing the "two-dials" feature at all. I've been polite about it, but to be honest I think it is a major flaw of the review and I am very surprised that Lars has not responded to my respective question yet.
It is not like the review is cast in stone. Other corrections have been made already. If it were my motivation to inform potential customers as thoroughly as possible, I'd make sure they know about the two dials in both "Pros" and Conclusions discussion.
If they don't like two dials or video is important to them, fine. But you've got to present unique features for what they are.

Good points. When you put it that way, it makes sense.
