Re: How to properly compare RX-100 and NEX-6 kit high ISO noise?

At 50mm (NEX-6) you get a F5.6, the RX100 gives a F4, so 1 stop difference. There is a 1 stop difference in noise, in favour for the NEX-6. If you look at these crops (imaging-resource), ISO800 for the RX100 and ISO1600 for the NEX-6, there is almost no difference, not in detail and not in noise.

Keep in mind that the Sigma 70/2.8 macro lens is used with the Nex-6. So the 16-50 will not be as sharp (I assume anyway).

At the wide end you even get 2 stops difference, in favour of the RX100. So this is a crop from the NEX-6 at ISO3200. You can see that the RX100 at ISO800 beats the NEX-6 at ISO3200.

So your statement is correct I think, the RX100 is a better choice than a NEX plus kitlens. And you get a little more reach.
