Why is my NEX not as good as RX100 or even LX5?

Re: OP is useless speculation

Most reviewers seem to say that all the 16MP NEX sensors are more or less the same IQ wise. As I mentioned, I owned the NEX C3, then the NEX 7, then the NEX 3N. The Nex 3s with kit lens were not much better than a good P&S, as my little test shows. The NEX 7 is a different story alltogether, even with the 16-50 kit lens. If you buy a NEX, this is the only one to get.

So my conclusion is: A small sensor paired to an excellent lens (Leica, Zeiss in my case) is as good or better than an APC sensor with an average kit lens.

What say you Gandalf?
