So what should they use?   Stars?  If the 20D got 4/5 stars, then should a 7D get 9/5 stars?  All reviews are just an indicator of how the reviewer felt about the camera on the day it got reviewed.

The only thing I hate about the percentage scores is the false precision.   Rating one camera 84% and the other 81% implies a significant difference, however on a scale of one to 10, both are 8's.   I really doubt that a reviewer can ranks cameras properly on a scale with 100 different possible scores.
