Pop Photo Review RX100-Noisier than the S100?
Aug 7, 2012

"Indeed, the RX100 produces noisier images at ISO 80 than the S100 does at ISO 400, and the Sony held noise to Low or better ratings only up to ISO 200. By ISO 800, noise was high enough to earn an Unacceptable rating and remained so up to the camera’s top sensitivity of ISO 6400."

Is this really the case? I assumed with a bigger sensor the noise would be better.
Is the camera worth the extra money over the S100 if this is the case?

Sony RX100
