If you read their methodology, you'd already know.

They upsize their test images from μ43 sensors to the size of a FF sensor. That essentially cuts all the scores in half, by definition.

Thanks Mike, I really did not see that and it makes much more sense.

I went back and still could not find any wording to indicate what you say but I do not doubt you, here is what I found that got my attention:

  • DxOMark Score shows:
    • The amount of information captured by the lens for a given camera.
    • How well the lens and camera perform together.
  • DxOMark Score does not show:
    • The intrinsic quality of the camera sensor.
    • The camera sensor's performance under high-light condition

So if they are showing how well a lens works with a given camera the scores still look terribly low to me. I know I am missing something here and your explanation makes it better but I cannot find it on their site.. They make it kind of hard to find but I will look again...

If i am typing on my iPad, please excuse any typos.
