You have to be wary of DPReview's camera reports as they don't use the standard kit lenses when shooting photos. They try to standardise individual makers reviews by using one lens , judged to be good , from that makers range.

While this approach has some validity it means that some reviews are biased because the chosen lens for any particular maker may be exceptional & little effort is made to keep a level playing field. I am not sure what Olympus & Sony lenses are used for the compact camera reviews but I feel certain that any perceived IQ differences are because the lenses used are not matched for performance.

You also have to be careful what part of the standard studio shot is chosen when making comparisons as the chosen optimum focus point may differ between two different camera shots.
