It's gear head rubbish. Dxo has turned tools of photography into a measurebating platform for the inept.

Mostly agree with that, although the article makes an interesting point about the importance of lens quality.

One of the main problems with the DXO ratings is that they compare body/lens combinations based on just ONE rating for the lens, which is plain stupid. There are so many factors that influence image quality, and for higher resolution bodies getting the most from a lens is very important. IMHO pictures from 5D3 and D800(E) tell a different story: if one uses a high quality lens and optimum settings there is a significant advantage for Nikon in image quality.
