Overall Score71

These results stand side by side with the overall sensor performance that we’ve read about in many online E-M5 camera reviews. You can click the ‘Comparisons’ link ahd you can see that the Olympus OM-D E-M5 was able to outperform the Panasonic GX1 and the G3 by nice margin for both dynamic range, color depth and low light ISO.

To in general, DxO Mark sayed in its conclusion that the E-M5 sensor scores very close to Sony NEX APS-C sensors, and sports the best performance among all 4:3 sensor.

Some people are debating about the credibility of those type of tests. I personally take them as another value and put it into the overall equation, but I won’t based my buying decision based on the DxOMark score.
