Yes, we give perfect scores to cameras that the review points out weak areas. And then we claim some people dont "get it." LOL...that is fanboyism to the extreme. If that is something we need to get, find me a review site, here, or anywhere, that mentions weak areas and flaws, and then gives perfect scores. Check out the camera reviews here on DPReview. Find me a single review with a perfect score that has the reviewer mentioning weak areas.

I anxiously wait your links to those reviews. If you cant find one, maybe you and the OP can educate the reviewers at they can "get it" just like you do.

Dpreview has never given a camera 100%, so from that logic there should be no Gold Star cameras either.

Yet the overall score of Dpreview doesn't always match the sum of individual values. The Sony A99 II got 85% and a silver star, while a Fuji X100F received a Gold star for 83%. The Cons list mentioned anything from unreliable face detection to outdated video, but the overall grade is still Gold.

Which proves my point....the OP at best should have given a 4/5.

5/5 is equal to a Gold Star -- which DPR regularly award to cameras. Which proves your opponent's point, not yours.

What is really amusing is the difference here since the thread was moved from Open to Sigma. Fanboyism justification quadrupled. Coincidence? Probably not.

The only thing that quadrupled was the ratio of comments by people who actually know anything about Sigma cameras, and have a grasp of the rationale for scoring a specialist camera highly. The amusing bit is all the prior comments by people essentially ignorant about the topic of this thread -- like you? -- who see ignorance as no barrier to opinion.
