Dxomark evaluates the Canon EOS M2 mirrorless camera

We are working on a CES 2014 trade show floor mega-round-up (should be posted before 11:59pm NYC time tonight), but while doing that, we noticed the first measurable action on the new Canon EOS M2 mirrorless camera, a camera that was announced for the Japanese market. And the measurable action is of the pixel-peepiential variety, the Dxomark evaluation. Spoilers follow below so stop reading if you don't want to be spoiled! Last warning! Stop reading if you don't want to be spoiled!

One comparison tells a lot in terms of RAW-sensor measurements, here is the Canon EOS M2 vs EOS M vs Canon SL1. I have been staring at the screen too long, am I seeing everything in triplicate? *_*

Dxomark also created a couple of other interesting comparisons:

+ EOS M2 vs Panasonic GM1 vs Olympus E-PM2 which breaks the narrative of sensor size, although at the same time we have to factor in Canon's historical (under)performance in Dxomark test measurements

+ Canon EOS M2 vs Sony NEX 5T vs Nikon J3 - are Canon's and Nikon's mirrorless systems in their current form one of the biggest advantages Sony has to make dramatic inroads with their mirrorless NEX E-mount system?

+ given the above comparisons, we don't feel the need to create more, but as always at Dxomark, you can compare any cameras measured in their system using their Compare feature

+ as far as I can tell this is the first completed evaluation of the Canon EOS M2. In the future, you can find future reviews at the Canon EF-M camera reviews list. Currently populated with EOS-M (posthumously EOS-M1) reviews and this Dxomark evaluation of the M2. Why did they give the camera and the system the same name? Were they only planning to release one mirrorless camera as a one-off experiment?
