© 2015 American Physical Society. The use of weak measurements for performing quantum tomography is enjoying increased attention due to several recent proposals. The claimed merits of using weak measurements in this context are varied, but are generally represented by novelty, increased efficacy, and foundational significance. We critically evaluate two proposals that make such claims and find that weak measurements are not an essential ingredient for most of their claimed features.
