Re: Lenses are more important

Actually, what I'd really like to see is DxOMark scores for the LENSES.

The sensors on all of these cameras aren't that much different -- as the DxOMark Sensor scores indicate. It's the lenses that make the difference, and it would be much more useful and interesting to see scores for those.

So far, the only fixed-lens camera they've lens tested was the Canon G1 X which scored 6P-Mpix...

That's on a sensor that's more than twice as big as on the RX100. If a lens that big is delivering 6 Mp of detail, it makes me wonder how the lenses on these smaller cameras compare.

Do we really need a 20 Mp sensor, if the lens is less than 6 Mp?

As the sensors on small cameras like the MX-1 continue to improve, how much more detail can they pull from their lenses. I expect the answer is less than 6 Mp.
