You are right... It's just this never ending qestions of people (I've been one of them
) of which camera to buy? Thanks to that they can see exactly how they perform and decide is which compromise is OK for them... We know that P&S fro that money will make good pictures in auto, is small etc... dSLR in auto will suck but in manual (so they will have to learn and etc.) will be the BEST... But is big, takes time to learn how to use it (and probably you know that many people buy dSLR and keep it on auto because they think that it is camera that is making great pictures...), needs different lenses for different perp... Etc.
So example... If newbie will have pointed out all + and - points and then see the results (pictures) one next to each other, then can decide what he want to do without asking again (every forum that I've seen about photography have few of those question a day! <well... maybe some few a week
Maybe calling it test is wrong but... Proffesional advise from pros?
