An interesting comparison with the canon 70D

I just spotted this comment in the DPreview review of the canon 70D

Quote:
In terms of image quality the 70D is essentially on a par with its rivals. The Nikon D7100 captures a fraction more resolution but the 70D comes closer to offering comparable low-light performance. This isn't enough to stop the Olympus OM-D E-M1 closing much of the gap on the Canon, despite its smaller sensor
Maybe it shows how sensor size isn't everything? (unlike how it appeared to be in the early days)

Interesting. If you go to the conclusion page of the 70D review and switch on Compare Mode and add in the E-M1, The Olympus equals or beats the Canon on every line except 'Value' and Movie Mode (which doesn't really affect me). This because the Canon is slated at £200 less than the Olympus I suppose...

Wonder how the 70d would work if you passed it under a running tap?
