This has been discussed to death here and elsewhere. If you are looking for a ranking from anywhere, you'll be influenced by what that reviewer thinks is important in a camera.

But if you look at the details of the testing...you will dig out good information about the sensors in the cameras. I find the details presented by DXO to be very relevant and enlightening. If all you are looking for is some form of rating with camera X being the best...then you'll be disappointed with any reviewer.

We can read this part that says this bout Dxo

Third, they sell their test equipment and software test suites to camera companies (Nikon, for instance, but I don’t believe Canon is one of their clients).

Nope, ai t going to start anything, but one of these days I would like to get my friend's camera and compare it to mine, two full frames, two big brands to say the least 😜

You lost me here. Test data does not lie...gut feel data is very suspect. I'd rather look at real honest data and make up my own mind than have some fluffy gut feel review.

YMMV.

I think the data they generate is quite interesting and does seem to be done in a decently scientific manner. It would be useful if they did they did separate best sensor tables for different ISO values though. When I first went on the site it just looked like Canon cameras were beaten by just about everything else. It was only playing around on the site that you find things aren't as bad as the scores on that table would make you think.

Very best,

Too much post processing influences images. Are you looking at the post processing skills of the photographer or the results from the sensor?

Irrelevant if the image satisfies what it was meant to in the medium it was intended for.

Also, are we looking at what YOU did as a photographer, or what a sensor made by someone else did, and you just pushed a button?

Really? So gear has nothing or very little to do with it?

80% of POTN is about camera technology. Which is why this board is so active. People want to know whats new? What technological barriers breakthroughs are on the horizon?

If we only cared about the photographer than there should only be a photo display thread and we shouldn't really care about new cameras/technology.

If you are familiar with Hogloff on this forum, you would understand my post. ;)

That's not what MalVeauX said, not even close.

Word.

That said, the trivia browsing at DxO is entertaining from time to time.
