Looks like my fear come true
the 99 PDAF AF point on sensor reduce image capture area hence reduce resolution

look ar RAW score
ISO 100 is the same both at 22
ISO 200-ISO 12800 all 20 for 5R

for 5N
ISO 200- 800 got 22
ISO 3200-6400 got 18
ISO 12800 got 16

so 5R get worse at 200-800 but slightly better at very high ISO 3200-12800

Conclusion of the review

"Also, the resolution results are slightly disappointing at lower sensitivities when compared against those achieved by Micro Four Thirds cameras."

This is a disgrace, worse than inferior sensor of MFT?

Is this new sensor a downgrade?
