Re: I think we have a "Class" classification problem here.

So I guess the "Gold" category has nothing to do with being "Best in class", right? Or we can say that the XZ-1 has the most requisite "wow" factor.

Being best in class certainly helps. Though it depends how good that class is. If all of the cameras are really good, but none of them is great, then nothing gets a Gold.

The XZ-1 had the 'wow' factor when it was reviewed, something like two years ago. We'd never seen a lens that bright in front of a sensor that big, with good JPEGs and an enjoyable user experience. The class has moved on. That's why review scores are explicitly related to the time they were reviewed.
