Re: Annoying misleading misrepresentation of sensor sizes

To me, the fact it's sensor is 2x the size of a Fuji x10, and about 2.5 times an LX5 is VERY interesting. But it took a little bit of working out.

Whereas comparing the coverage of their lenses took no time at all, as they are sensibly expressed in 35mm terms.

Have you read our preview?


On the first page we explicitly state the areas of the sensors, have a diagram relating the RX100's sensor to 1/2.3" type, and elsewhere have a video explaining at (rather too much) length how the sensor relates to those of its rivals.

Understanding the sensor size is absolutely key to understanding the RX100 (and why it costs $650), so I did my best to make it as clear as possible.
