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

Re: OP is useless speculation

I challenge your conclusion - it is illogical. RX100 is miles ahead of any 1/2.3 sensor P&S and still if you look at DXO it's sensor rating is significantly below that of the NEX.

If you take even a very good P&S with a tiny sensor even the slightly larger 1/1.7 the NEX sensor will have I would guess 4+ stops advantage over it and the small sensor cameras just can't complete with large sensors on dynamic range. Even in a good light a P&S can't resolve as much detail as NEX. When low light hits forget it - RX100 is the first compact that could do anything reasonable in low light.

An NEX with a kit lens should perform on the level of a typical mid-level DSLR with a kit lens - a 3.5-5.6 is practically standard but NEX should deliver better low light then many. And no one would claim that even the best P&S RX100 aside could outperfrom a DSLR. The details and dtnamic range are just not there The fact that small sensor cameras have fast lenses is meaningless because their sensors are tiny and just don't get as much light.
