Accurate? probably. Relevant? not so much.

If you think another product is better and you can justify switching, then that makes the most sense. I would caution you though that even if DXO is accurate, a sensor is just one important part of the whole system, and the final images are what you should be comparing. Lenses, sensors, camera firmware, processing software - all of these factors contribute.

+1.

DXO has a testing methodology, and I have no reason to doubt their measurements, numbers or graphs. But their results appear to greatly exaggerate differences. In use, it's very difficult to see DXO's 'huge' differences in actual photos.

And as plugin says, there is much much more to the camera than the measures DXO does.

IMHO, YMMV.
