Re: DxOMark still silent on the E-M5

Yes, reducing complex sets of data to a single "score" is ultimately arbitrary and misleading. The delays of reporting EM-5 results have brought the "subjectivity" of scoring into the foreground of attention.

I think the problem is more complex than simply that of the overall score. The overall score is based on DxO's unknown formula that weights the different sensor measurements. Thus, if the overall score is much different from what the people at DxO expected, then it has to mean that one or more sensor measurements (DR, low light ISO, color depth) also differs substantially from what they thought it would be.
