I have also found DXO test results often odd. Just when everybody expects the latest M43 cameras to achieve higher performance levels and to get even more competitive with DSLRs, as reported by some other testers/bloggers, DXO again surprised us with scores that are even lower than older models. Unbelievable! Maybe DXO's own testing methods and their transparency should be reviewed.

It would be nice to get a sample of a grass they were smoking.
I see that Olympus 75mm F1.8 on old, more than four-year old Panasonic GH1 has 9 mysterious units called "P-Mpix",
but the same lens on GX7 provides only miserable 7  "P-Mpix",
and even the oldest, I would say ancient, five-year (!) Panasonic G1 still provides 8 "P-Mpix".
Panasonic's development team are not even ableĀ  just to repeat its result of distant past 2008...
It's too far beyond the bound of any explicable common sense.
It looks like DxO use some magic coefficient that depends on how well should go sales of competing vendor cameras...
