There are a few out there that will argue DXO marks are useless imformation and has little to do with image quality in the real world. I have noticed those people generally shoot cameras with low scores. I almost never hear a photographer argue the point when they shoot with a camera that scores high.

Yes it's like politics. People believe the pundits that spout what they already believe (Rush Limbaugh) because to listen to those with different opinions would make them think and doubt their heartfelt beliefs.

I have always found DXO marks accurate from what cameras I have used in the past.

I believe they are reasonably accurate because their methodology is sound. It is a mistake to buy a camera based purely on DXO scores because they only consider the sensor. There is more to a camera than that.

Miss use of the ability to do 100% pixel peeping is the bane of digital photography because it causes people to fret over inconsequential issues.
