DXOMark is slightly disappointed in the GM1's sensor.

The RX100 ll holds up surprisingly well.

The GX7's sensor is the better one.

The RX100II performs admirably. I already wrote on the Nikon 1 forum that people should not switch to m43 or APSc. If the Nikon 1 gets anything like the Sony RX100II sensor it leaves little to be desired when compared to m43s. Great performance.

GX7 pulls slightly ahead but I don't tjhink people will motice this. Especially EM1, but also the other Sony 4/3 sensors, are truely better.  But even here I wonder who is going to see that...

Panasonic really needs to try to do better than GM1, even GX7 and next year they sould surpass EM1 performance in order to stay competitive when we only look at sensors. The organic sensor, together with Fuji, and some other new technology we'll get there.
