Why would users who know these obvious things need to read a review?

Because they want affirmation that they made the right choice and everyone else agrees.

The raw compression issue doesn't affect everything, all of the time, so one could want 36mp and still deal with this occasional irritation.

Sometimes it becomes one of those things you can't unsee. Once you know it's there and what it looks like, those "occasions" become more frequent.

Everything is a compromise - Thom was addressing why he felt A7R was not ultimate in FF IQ. Just two minor tweaks (true 14-bit raw and a smoother shutter) and it would have equaled the D800E for a noticeably lower price.
