I hate it when people mix math values like "30% less than the standard APS-C sensor used in DSLR cameras, but nine times greater than those in compact cameras". It is no way to make a comparison.

I just think that things should work the way I expect them to.

Suggest a better comparison. Cell phone sensors tend to be smaller.

My point is, one should use the same values when making comparisons. Either % or multiples. Mixing them does not make for a good comparison IMO. Item A is 30% smaller than B, but 8 X larger than C. Leaves my little brain needing more information.

Things like 10.3" are often used & it's bizarre to me. Inches already have a scale 1/8th, 1/16th etc. so why mix decimal in there which cannot be logically resolved using imperial measurements. It's like saying "6 miles & 0.2 km."

either use an imperial measurement or a decimal, put please not both in one number!
