Consider autofocus peformance

I particularly trust the test carried out by DxOMark. The methodology is very sound I think

DxOMark results -- and almost all of the discussion in this thread -- concern the sensor performance only, which is one factor in the bigger picture of "low light performance."

Another important factor is the performance of the autofocus system in low light. For my work, if a photo is not tack-sharp, it's useless, no matter how little noise there may be.

If you're shooting landscapes, the autofocus system may not be important to you ... but if you're shooting anything that moves, the autofocus system is critical.
