In its October issue, Consumer Reports magazine named the Canon G1 X Mark II their best-scoring camera ever. That's the best ever. CR gave it excellent scores for overall image quality, flash photos, video quality and rear LCD. Better in these categories than the Sony RX10, Nikon Coolpix A, Sony RX100 II, Fujifilm X100S and Ricoh GR. The category was point-and-shoot cameras but no advanced DSLR or advanced mirrorless camera has ever racked up such scores, as CR itself points out. Now I don't want to pooh-pooh anyone's choice of a G1 X and we do know that it's a decent camera (if somewhat betrayed by an older sensor) but this is one example of why I don't generally bother with Consumer Reports. It's the same way with cars and trucks or virtually any subject with which I have some knowledge. I can't help but scatch my head over many of CR's choices. Of course, Consumer Reports probably isn't testing for the connoisseur of any product category but, rather, the general masses. But, to my sensibilities, they are often flat-out wrong even when their conclusions are considered in that context. Thoughts?
