The measurements yes; the summary score is meaningless.

I was disappointed find my 16MP Panny G3 rated fairly low (56), as same as 12MP Oly EP2, whereas Sony 5N and 5R are rated high (78). Even my 8 year old Canon XT is rated better. Interesting to note that PEN E-PM2 is rated slightly higher than OMD EM5 ( 72 vs 71).

The technical measurements seem to be reliable and consistent with practical experience. The summary score is just about meaningless. If you can read and make sense of the graphs, use 'compare sensors' to see how different cameras perform in what matters to you. If you can't, you're better off ignoring the whole thing.
