Dxomark delivers their Olympus E-M5 Test Results (long list of comparisons)

The Doctors of Pixel-Peeping are back with a new round of test results. It is the Olympus E-M5, the most advanced of the Olympus M43rds digital cameras at the moment. Without further ado, here are the DXoMark measurements (click on the Measurements tab for the detailed data) along with Dxomark's own comparisons and analysis.

As usual, we point to a variety of comparisons here for your pixel-geeking pleasure. To help make them more readable, we break them down in sub-sections... Please note a number of recently announced and recently released cameras have not been measured by Dxomark yet, so there are no comparisons for them as of the time of writing. We include "ghost/future comparisons" if you want to DIY those at a later date...

The usual caveats apply when looking at the DxoMark test results! The findings are limited in scope by the limitations of what is tested. Dxomark is not intended to be an end-to-end camera system evaluation. Unless most of your pictures are exactly the same as the ones Dxomark takes (very unlikely).
