    The primary use of the DxO rating is to supply fodder for dpreview.com comments. (grin)

    Seriously, ratings need to be taken with not a grain, but a ton of salt. Either they are extremely limited, such as DxO, which means that they may be more trustworthy but less widely applicable, or, for example, dpreview.com's number tends to show significant bias towards some features that mean nothing to me.

    You mentioned a microphone plug. I never shoot videos with a DSLR, so if the this feature were factored into a rating then it would not reflect how I use my camera.

    I understand your comment about ISO performance being labeled "sports". As someone who has shot sports in less than well lit arenas at night, the term makes sense. On the other hand, I can see your point.
