DPR is scoring the IQ not the sensor like DxO.
D800 and 5Dm3 beats up K-5 anytime for IQ,

Except for the DR: according to DxO the K-5 beats the Canon by more than 2EV. The D800 looks like the same sensor scaled to FF.

That said, the dpr scoring is useless, I ignore it and prefer to read the conclusion. The list of pros and cons is more useful from a prospective buyer perspective. But I get that some people here see this score as a competition and contest the referee's call, especially when their team doesn't win.
