What DxO marks mean? Or how to read all these "tests"?


I am getting confused more and more about all these different tests.

Short Story: I am thinking for buying either a Olympus xz-1 or a Fujifilm XF1 as my always with me camera.

Olympus has faster lens, Fujifilm not.

Now DxO marks say that


that the olympus has a much worse sensor than the fujifilm (I also added a power shot as has the same sensor with a smaller pocket camera I have).

Now lets see these cameras on the dpreview

Dpreview Tests

can someone show me why the XF1 is considered better camera? I can only see some times marginal gains from the XF1 camera but in that case I do not understand the scores.

What is it going with all these tests? How to read those? Are my eyes the problem?
