translation anomaly?

Short of a truly bad surprise, the Pentax K-01 will provide superior image quality to that of the OM-D E-M5 because it uses a sensor renowned for its sensitivity and dynamic range, the 16Mpix CMOS (which fits into the APS-C’s intrinsically larger body).

The first part of the quoted sentence is interesting--is DxO saying that they think it would be bad if the E-M5 tested better than the K-01?

Strikes me as a translation thing, Michael -- i.e. they mean "big surprise" or "shocking surprise" but whoever wrote that isn't perfectly fluent in English idioms. (Much else written on the DxO web site shows evidence of that.)
