The proof is ALWAYS in the printing.

The quality of prints depends on the quality of your printer + paper, not the camera. In fact it is irrelevant how the image was captured, since the data gets mapped and compressed to what your printer can reproduce anyway. If the highlights are blown and the detail is missing the printer will not create it for you.

No dxomark tests or other "data" can convey with any degree of accuracy just how well a camera takes pictures in real-world applications. Even in high contrast scenes, when properly set for exposure, the E-510 performs admirably and responds exceptionally well to heavy pushing in post-process ... although the dxomark scores would lead you to think it can't compete at all with other cameras in this regard.

The quality of your camera (on the other hand) allows you to capture what you intent to print. Some cameras will do great job at it, and almost regardless of the condition, while the others will give you technically lesser quality captures once outside their range of limits. And that is when the tests and comparisons become handy, for if you want to know where the differences are.
