In reply to:

twomoocows: What's the difference between the A6500 Silver Award with 85% and the Olympus OM-D Gold Award with 85%? Just curious.

I'd phrase it differently...
The A6500 and A6300 both get an 85% rating, and the A6500 has more features, yet the A6300 get a gold rating and the A6500 only gets a silver. What gives?? I can't help thinking DP's review/rating system is meaningless.

ryanshoots: Dammit! First food, water, shelter, clothing... just when I was getting a handle on that, then I find out I need these five apps as well.

I agree. I thought the comment was hilarious. Are they telling me I also have to go buy a new phone, since mine only runs iOS?? As things stand, I can't run 4 of these Must Have apps. I feel I've missed the boat.

SIDE NOTE TO THE REVIEWER, who wrote, "If you're like me, you're getting sick of Snapseed's filter package"... No, we're not all like you.

samualson: Great job DP review, it's mind boggling that camera diehard's will resort to these battles to the death if their favorite is not on the list. Get over it, it's DP reviews opinion, your opinions may differ(ya think) .

It's all subjective and opinions vary, going ballistic because a camera review site classified a particular camera as being a compact is ridiculous.

For all we know the review teams could of consisted of ex NFL football players and to them every camera is compact.

I think it would be a safer bet to try to grab the last pastry at an all you can eat luncheon hosted by Rosie O, Donnell than to disagree with a review teams camera choices.

This is a forum for readers to express their views, so I think it's okay to comment about other cameras. And it's probably what dpreview intends; they can't review all the cameras that are out there, after all.
