Re: And I am not

I am of the totally opposite opinion.

I think it is hard enough to just set a coarse grade - so a finer grade is impossible to get correct IMHO.

If you have 8.1 or even 6.34 - then you have to design some kind of formula that weights some kind o "measured" values.

This gives a false sense of accuracy IMHO. The "measured" values are actually a matter of opinion. And the weights for each measure is also a matter of opinion. And what values to measure is also a matter of opinion.

And the formula? Its often a summation of linear components. But the reality is not linear - different values interact - e.g. you expect better result and usability from a big, heavy and expensive camera.

So - you take a set of inexact opinions and compute one exact value with a bogus formula. Useless IMHO.
