Olympus OM-D E-M10: One of the highest scores for a Four Thirds sensor

With a DxOMark a score of 72 points the diminutive E-M10 achieves one of the best scores we’ve seen for a Four-Thirds size sensor. Both the Color Sensitivity at 22.8-bits and the Dynamic Range at 12.3Evs are impressive for this size sensor but the low light score (884 ISO) remains a little on the low side. But it’s not far off the best 14-bit APS-C sensors in that regard and is in fact better than some of the current APS-C CMOS sensors from Canon, including that found on the current Canon EOS 700D.
