Oly OMD E-M1 mk II Sets New Standard with Scores on DXO's Sensor Test

It earned the highest scores yet for a m4/3 camera by a significant margin, and, more significantly, there is now no significant difference between its scores and the scores of APS-C DSLRs, such as the recently released Nikon D500. So it appears m4/3 image quality has closed the gap with that of APS-C DSLRs--at least under DXO's methodology.

Here's a link to the review:

Here is a comparison chart with other cameras using a 4/3 or APS-C sensor:

For those skeptical of these types of test results, here is a real world report from someone with access to both an OMD E-M1 II and a Nikon D500, who found the image quality of the cameras pretty much the same:
