no, picture styles doesn't affect Raw files. Maybe a simple test with same lens and object? I'm a bit curious now .. :)

it's on my things to do list ;)

Picture styles effects RAW files if you use the Canon RAW converter, in which case, by default DPP will apply the picture style.. you can defeat it of curse, and or pick any other picture style in editing.

Well, after they got bought out by Amazon it seemed that they weren't allowed to not recommend anything. So we started to see ratings like "Recommended (just)".

I didn't put two and two together. Seems so obvious now.

Holy crap - I had no knowledge of this!

Who can tell me the corporate brass of Amazon.com does not subtly undermine the 'unbiased nature' of their reviews...? Wow. What an age we live in. I don't like these shocks in my life, it means one more drink this week...

Looks like I have opened a can of worms here.

Anyway - it looks like the acquisition happened circa 2007-08.

So, it does not fully explain why 7D (came out in 2009 isn't it ?) was given 'Highly recommended' status.

Er, this is getting way OT, but it wasn't meant to explain the 7D's rating. I presume it got that rating because they really liked it. I'm suggesting the takeover may have been, in part at least, responsible for their strange reluctance to avoid giving any camera a 'not recommended' rating.

Obviously their new system was put in place because the old was was, to be honest, pretty useless.

I think after doing some hands-on previews - if they figured something might be a "not-recommended" they would avoid doing an in-depth review and carry on with their tremendous "to do" list.

we do see in group tests some pretty low scores though

Are there really any bad SLR cameras these days? How could any SLR in production not be recommended for its intended market? They are all very good cameras. They also generally only give the best compacts (Cameras we already know are good) the time for a full review.

I agree with that. The cheapest cameras like the T2i and D3100 are fantastic compared to even the same models of 4-5 years ago.
