But .... reading the whole review is very informing.


Regardless of the type rating used %, A B C, etc -- it really is of little to NO value without the Narrative. The narrative part is what is useful. Who would make any logical selection for a Camera purchase based solely on the Rating -- I definitely would NOT.

I agree, percentage scores, not just from this site, are pretty much useless.

Apart from the other issues raised about how these scores are calculated and  awarded, they are often closely grouped together so there may be only a point or two between various models.

As noted, read the review, evaluate the samples, but take  the "scores" with a pinch of salt..
