This really isn't a surprise. DxO and Nikon are inseparably joined at the hip.
Do you have any evidence of this?
All of this (everyone's comments) just sounds like more sour grapes from Canon fans because their cameras don't score as well and it is well recognised that Canon's sensors aren't as good.
Does anyone complain that the scores for Canon sensors are too high?
Or that DxO incorrectly says that Canon camera X has a better/worse sensor than Canon camera Y?

Isn't a surprise, either. Our resident Nikon foreverfanboyyayz!
BTW, Dilbert...are you ACTUALLY asking me if Nikon and DXO are "literally" joined at the hip? I mean, your asking for "evidence" of that...I've been racking my brain for a way to describe how organizations and companies have "hips", conjure up some kind of...evidence, for that...but I'm at a loss for...anything...here......
I hear in a song once that hips don't lie.
Nah, that only applies if you're Shakira.
