E-M1 Gets DxOMark Tested — Highest M4/3 Score to Date

DxO tested the E-M1 and the camera earned a score of 73– the highest m4/3 score to date.  The E-M1 still uses the same generation of sensor that is used in the E-M5 and E-P5 so I was not expecting any great increase in the score.  I am guessing the next generation of Sony m43
