Olympus E-5 Nabs Stellar Review

FotoMagazin, a German website, linked with Google Translate, has just awarded the Olympus E-5 an utterly stellar review. Like, so stellar I'm skeptical. Especially considering that their review completely flies in the face of reviews from DxOMark and DPReview.

In the totality of their reviews, the E-5 lands in third place. Third?! Even stranger is the standing of other cameras. The Canon EOS 1D (Mark IV AND III) has a greater image quality rating than the juggernaut-like Nikon D3x. All of which, including the APS-C EOS 7D, are above the EOS 1Ds Mark III. I like Olympus, and 4/3's, and I certainly hope that E-5 is good, but I'm eating a bowl-full of salt with these results. It is simply impossible that a sensor that is 1/4 the size of a full-frame camera will match it for image quality. The resolution just isn't there.
