Wow - that's some retraction!

At least they've had the guts to admit it, but it does make you wonder about how they concoct it in the first place! Even more reason to doubt the 'score' (as opposed perhaps to the review).

As Mt Spokane has said while I've typed this (!) : not a surprise when you have a secret recipe that no-one else can audit in the first place.

Missed by many, I am sure (DXOMARK probably launched this deliberately to be hidden by the other Canon news):
"Please Note: A previous version of this review, published June 19, 2020, contained erroneous test data that affected the scoring. This new version of the review contains the correct data and scores. We regret any inconvenience this may have caused Canon and our readers."
They have not issued a new report, just changed some words and the numbers...

I guess even the Wizard of Oz pulls the wrong lever every once in a while.

Whatever, DXOMARK is the height of comparing specs on paper while totally ignoring real world performance. It's nice to look at, but I wouldn't put a ton of weight into it. It's a small part of the larger picture of how a camera actually performs.

Well at least they did it quicker and more publicly this time. Though I don't believe a word they say about the excuse.

Someone here (I believe it was here) posted that the 1DX3 test shots at DXO were originally 12 bit electronic shutter shots.

I don't believe DXO has formally acknowledged that, but it surely would explain the delta in results. See what e-shutter does to DR at PTP:
