Hi,

Yes, I have noticed. Great pity they removed it, but it is their choice :-)

Anyway, the 101 figure is pretty much what I expected. Actually perhaps a tiny bit less than what I would have expected. A large sensor surface has some benefits…

Best regards
Erik


Well this is weird, apparently the 645Z got the highest score on there:

But now it has disappeared again:

Say what ?  :o

Ah well, even though I shoot a Pentax with a four times smaller sensor (K5 IIs) and shouldn't care anyway as I am happy with what I have (read: can afford  ;))  I still felt some sort of sting when this info came forward, as if some powerful force within the Industry (whatever that may mean) persuaded DXO to make the review of the 645Z unavailable and therewith withhold that camera it's rightfully deserved first place in the rankings...

It actually turns out the information is still available on their site, be it only as part of a review of a new ....Sony camera.  We live in a strange world.

i would personally have expected a higher score for the 645Z. Maybe Pentax just contacted DxO to request a re-test?

Cheers,
Bernard

That may well be the case Bernard, I admit I hadn't even thought about it that way.
