Re: MX-1 DxOMark Test Up...This Too....From The Same Test.....
In reply to jimr, Feb 28, 2013

Do not forget this is a sensor review and the slow lens on the RX100 at anything but wide open starts to lose out against these fast aperture compacts, In fact with a one stop advantage with the sensor it means the RX100 has a one stop disadvantage to all these fast cameras at full zoom and a shorter zoom also. Just a different sort of camera, not really relevant but relentlessly plugged.

From DxOMark In The Same Test We Also Find This Conclusion Not To Be Overlooked:

"Two slightly higher priced enthusiast compact cameras that compete with the MX-1 are the Olympus XZ-2 iHS ($599.99) and theSony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 ($649.99). The Olympus XZ-2 and MX-1 have the same Overall Score of 49 and perform almost identically across all three use case scores, which comes as no surprise given that they likely utilize the same 12-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor.

The Sony RX100, on the other hand, sports a much larger 1-inch CMOS sensor and is therefore able to achieve higher marks across the board, with an Overall Score of 66, essentially performing a full stop better than the MX-1 and XZ-2 as well as the Canon S110 and Panasonic LX7. In fact, the RX100 is able to beat the MX-1 and XZ-2 by 1.5 stops in color depth and 1EV in dynamic range. And in low-light shooting it wins by nearly one full stop, indicating that it is a better option for sports photography—again, no surprise given its larger sensor."
