DXOPress Release:
DxO Labs today unveiled DxOMark 2010, the new version of its successful dxomark.com website, adding objective RAW-based lens performance measurements to its existing database of camera sensor measurements. DxOMark 2010 also proposes fifteen different DxOMark Scores to assess the various aspects of image quality and to help rank and compare lenses and cameras.

Freely accessible, DxOMark is designed to serve the entire imaging community, particularly serious and demanding photographers along with photography experts and journalists.

About the new DxOMark 2010 Measurement Database
Initially covering about 540 cameras-lens combinations, with dozens to follow each month, DxOMark measurement database is the ultimate source of objective, independent metrics on camera image quality. In order to guarantee the accuracy and consistency of its database, DxO Labs, an industry leader in Image Quality Evaluation, performs all measurements in its own labs, never relying on any manufacturer data. DxO Labs uses state-of-the-art equipment and open measurement protocols compliant with international and industry standards.

DxOMark measurements are performed on RAW images and are specific to each lens-camera combination. “We found that the same lens can produce big differences in image quality performance when coupled with different camera bodies, which is why DxO Labs has taken the time and trouble to evaluate lens-camera combinations instead of testing lenses and bodies on their own,” said Nicolas Touchard, Vice President of Marketing, DxO Labs Image Quality Evaluation.

About the new DxOMark 2010 Scores
To complement the lens and camera sensor Measurement Database, DxOMark also proposes fifteen Scores to help users to quickly assess and compare the intrinsic RAW performance of lenses and cameras. These Scores are based either on photographic Use Cases such as Travel, Portrait, Landscape, etc., or key optical metrics such as resolution, distortion, etc., allowing fair and objective comparisons of photographic equipment within the context of specific needs.

Its interesting to compare identical lenses on different bodies. It seems the dominant factor in quality seems to be lp/mm and this seems to improve with sensor size and iso performance.
i tested the canon 24-105 on a 400d, 7d and 5d getting overall scores of 24,30,40 the fine lines resolution dominates.
