Level 57 Gear Dropping In Inferno MP7?

General Discussion
Playing tonight in Act 1 Fields of Misery tonight in Inferno MP 7 I got a legendary to drop. Ok, nothing unusual about that. That is until I went to identify it. It was a level 57 wizard hat:

Is this a bug? Please don't tell me this is common. Low level loot shouldn't be dropping in Inferno, much less MP7. Has this happened to anyone else? Should I make a post in the bug forums?
Very common. I have vendored scores of that legendary. I think there are a couple other ones as well.

EDIT: I think this question was asked a long time ago. If i remember right they said it was initially not supposed to drop in inferno. They just added it to the long list of "things to fix" and never got around to it. By "a long time ago" i think Jay Wilson was still on the diablo team.
You must of just come back to Diablo 3. Loot use to be 52 to 53 @ Inferno Level at the lowest

Be glad.
Ya, I did just come back about a month ago.
Its itemlvl 58.
Thats the lowest possible on inferno.

Not sure about the follower items i stopped pick up over a year ago check:

Patch 1.03:
http://us.battle.net/d3/en/game/patch-notes/1-0-3

High-end items (items level 61-63) will now drop in all Acts of Inferno and Acts III and IV of Hell difficulty
The new approximate drop rates are as follows:
Hell - Act III and Act IV
iLvl 61: 9%
iLvl 62: 1.9%
iLvl 63: 0%
Inferno - Act I
iLvl 61: 17.7%
iLvl 62: 7.9%
iLvl 63: 2.0%
Inferno - Act II
iLvl 61: 18.6%
iLvl 62: 12.4%
iLvl 63: 4.1%
Inferno - Act III and Act IV
iLvl 61: 24.1%
iLvl 62: 16.1%
iLvl 63: 8.0%

Then Mosnterpowers change:

Thanks for all the info Neo. Seems extremely stupid that Inferno, much less high MP's have any chance at all to drop low level loot. What an idiotic design.

Low level loot is no different from max level loot. Everything is bad.
Inferno can drop low lvl items till ilvl58, but this affects legs mostly, since rares get the rolls of the monster lvl (ilvl 63). Only legs are not affected by this. Since legs are only to be possibly considered worthy of anything if >61, sure it is kind of stupid.
Will be changed with loot 2.0.
As page mentioned, all rare gear rolls with stats at the equivalent of the level of monster that dropped it. So with MP1+ that means all stats can roll at the range of an i63 variant. The only thing that this doesn't apply to are the items base damage range if it's a weapon, or base armor range if it's armor.

So i63 will still be the best overall, especially in regards to weapons as the damage modifier is so integral.
Got ANOTHER one of these stupid things tonight. So infuriating to be getting level 57 loot in Inferno.

And not just any loot, but a legendary. You hear the sound, see the orange spike, ooo, maybe its something good this time, nope another pos level 57. Grrrrrrrrrr!
