TurboElephant: "The Sony Cyber-shot RX100 offers more bells and whistles, but you're limited to its fixed zoom lens and smaller (albeit not that much smaller) sensor."
1" sensor = 116 mm243 sensor = 225 mm2
So GM1's 43 sensor s almost twice as big as the RX100, I wouldn't call that "not much smaller" ;)
Quite a contrast from how APS users universally ridicule m4/3 cameras for having a 'tiny' sensor format.
Jinks81: How come Fuji cameras are the only ones with practically no chroma noise in RAW?
I thought an obvious tweak like this usually gets criticized. One example is Nikon's noise reduction practice (found it in wiki on RAW files). I heard nothing but praise about Fuji lately. How come Fuji is getting pretty much zero criticism for this?

Craig from Nevada: It is a just a beauty contest---It has nothing to do about the quality of the camera or the competition. Plenty of nice cameras were released in 2012 and this was but one.
It is the photographer that matters.
While I agree with you 100%, I guarantee you that nobody would say this if Canon or Nikon won this poll.
emircruz: yeah, the same dxo that cant release the e-m5 sensor results because... well your guess is as good as mine.
@goblin - You are totally right. I am sure DxO didn't find any "surprizing measures" when Nikon ISO 6400 is actually 4500 or Sony ISO 6400 is also not even 5000. Same with Canon too! Wow! Only Olympus "cheats!" This "cheat" was only brought up when E-M5 was released. How convenient.
