I remember people were raving about the high ISO (6400) image quality of older Fujiflim models that produced smudgy, zero color noise RAW pictures. Maybe Fujiflim decided to cook less with their RAW files this time? At least it is more subtle this time.
forpetessake: What's wrong with DPR? How can they post such a superficial review? Did they use a camera for one day and rushed with the review? None of the serious shortcomings are even mentioned:* wrong (bloody) reds lacking details and color transitions* cyan ('aqua' according to Adobe) sky color* wax figure rendition of human faces* watercolor rendition in landscape shots
'They are nothing more then amateur JPEG shooters.'
Are people supposed to be insulted by this? I didn't know this camera is for a 'pro RAW shooter' (LOL) such as yourself.
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.
