Four New Camera Models Get DxOMarked
The Canon EOS-1D Mark IV, the Nikon D3S (review), the Olympus PEN E-P2 (review) and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1 (review) have just been tested over at DxOMark. The Nikon D3S (pictured), a camera that has recently been awarded our highest Essential rating, received a DxOMark sensor score of 82.4, which is the fourth-best score ever. The Nikon D3S sensor is bettered only by the Phase One P65+ and P40+ medium-format digital backs and the Nikon D3x. The Canon EOS-1D Mark IV landed on 16th place with a DxO Mark Sensor rating of 73.6. Out of the two Micro Four Thirds cameras, the Olympus E-P2 received a slightly higher score than the Panasonic GF1, though both achieved much lower results than the Lumix GH1 tested earlier on.
