I have to side with Russell here.  It seems the OP is overly generous in star ratings. Though, the OP is entitled to their opinion, it just may not be objective for some users that are looking for a more "honest" review.

Perhaps the OP should have added a disclaimer ....

Shame that there seems to be a general bias with people when they own or invest in something they have a strong inclination to proclaim its excellence. Not saying it's the case for the OP here.

So what? Let us fanboys be happy.  

I agree, the "review" is overly happy and positive, but as it is posted on the Nex fan board, I can't be upset over it.  I think it's curious that it has touched a nerve with some.

If you really want to choose among different cameras, read pro reviews as well as user reviews, and visit sites for other cameras.  There you'll find both fans and people complaining about the various failings, like, why can't company X do feature Y like some competitors, etc.  Only when you realize what obscure features are important or not important to you can you start to pick through the accolades and figure out what might work for you.  Given that, I can't imagine assigning a numerical value to a camera.  How could I expect someone else to appreciate the same features that I do?  Maybe they do, but maybe they don't.

Meanwhile, I think we need more people who can be happy with what they have rather than always needing the next model, buying a new camera every year like some camera junkie!  (Not that I would mind an upgrade... )
