I completely agree that with F0.95 50mm primes NEX is better in low light. But I know few people who use only kit zoom on NEX and is not going to buy F1.8 primes. Because of that I just want to compare 2 complete packages for around 500 euros each. NEX-3N is actually closer much for RX-100 in size, price and missing VF (and NEX-3N has low light performance identical to NEX-6 in my test)

I think comparing NEX-3N to RX-100 is fare comparison and for many amateurs the only difference is over-hyped sensor size promising much better pictures in bad light. But if it is not always true - other advantages or RX-100 enters into game - it is smaller, has better video quality, more zoom, memory recall...

I just want to make sure I understand this topic right. It seems that smaller sensor does not necessary makes the camera worse low light performer.
