dpreview can you please test the RX100 at 5mp

Dear dpreview

Whilst you testing the RX-100, please can you check out the 5mp setting.

I have found that this gives better contrast and detail. Noise obviously drops (by 6dB I calculate). Can see little or no benefit at 10mp setting.

Down sampling an image 20mp to 5mp does not give the same increase in IQ.

I assume (to my eyes) that the increased 5mp IQ is that down-sampling occurs before JPG compression.

Thank you in advance
