    Think my guess is off? Or you don't put any stock in DXO?

    I was implying that for now any guess would work.

  7. The E5 is a year old, the EP2 almost two. The G3 is the only reasonably new
    one in that bunch.

    OTOH Nikon claims that the sensor for the Nikon 1 series was designed 4
    years ago, so perhaps the comparison is still fair in some regard.

    Strangely the V1 scores only 54, two points lower in the overall score than
    the J1! According to the test it scores lower in color depth and low light
    ISO. If anything, I'd imagine that the V1 should have scored better as it
    does not have the extra dust removal glass between the sensor and the lens.
    Ideas?

    Nikon's J1 and V1 have a sensor smaller than Four Thirds, with little
    more than half the surface area, so it is quite a creditable result.


    I agree, it is strange. But it could easily be explained by sample
    variation.

    Some years ago I helped compile a set of optical test results for SLR
    lenses. Wherever possible, we tested multiple samples of each lens.
    The amount of sample variation was surprisingly high. More recently,
    I have experienced significant sample variation between apparently
    identical digital cameras. So I would not be surprised if sample
    variation was a factor in DxO Labs' tests.
