Sony xperia i1 2/3" is same 1/1.5", do maths, 2/3=0.6666 , 1/1.5=0.6666.
Mark Chan: Obviously going to come off as an OLY fanboy, but I do not understand how your review did not mention the XZ-1 OR the newer XZ-2 as comparable competition, and have to actually resort to mentioning the Nikon 1 series or m43.
I have held the XZ-2, and its is equally built like a tank; has the fast AF akin to that of the PEN series if not the RX100, and has a nice f1.8 - 2.5 lens, albeit shorter (112 vs 140 at long end). I would expect that your reviews do mention competition in its entirety.
Oh btw, the XZ-2 is a lighter package WITH a similarly sized sensor.
"nearest competitors". Now RX100 is nearest competitor but not in same class. Wery odd. Silver award for RX100 is troublesome for you and you not include RX100 in any class because of silver award.
ARTASHES: Well well, let's see which sensor will chose Pentax for K5 replacement : Sony's 24 mp or they will return to Samsung and take this new 20mp one...Just curious :)
Nikon use Aptina for J1, not sure that Nikon will use new Sony sensor because they not yet bring camera with 24mp sensor from a77 and in the past Nikon bring camera with new sensor shortly after Sony.
