The Nissan Silvia (sold as the 240SX in the U.S.) is one of the Japanese car manufacturer’s most recognizable vehicles, and in S14-guise, is particularly popular throughout the tuning industry.

If you dive into the comments on the recent news of the Nikon D850's chart-topping DxOMark score of 100, you'll notice a trend: people claiming that the Pentax 645Z actually scored 101 way back in 2015... before that score was unceremoniously scrubbed from the DxOMark website. So what's going on here? Conspiracy? Foul play? Piles of money being passed around under corporate board room desks?
Not quite. The truth, as is so often the case, is a little less salacious.
