43Rumors reports that the latest tests published by DxOmark reveal that a $5,500 Leica M Full Frame Sensor Camera could not match the image quality of top tier micro 4/3 cameras like the Panasonic Lumix GH3 and the Olympus OM-D E-M5 (see above).
This is no slight against the Leica, which is a phenomenal camera. It’s just more proof that the gap in image quality between micro 4/3 sensors and their “full frame” cousins has been closed. M43 for the Win!
