Thoughts about Leica Q2 sensor dynamic range and noise


Here is some sensor test results below...
I must say I was expecting a lot more from an expensive camera like that, and also knowing that Leica does not tend to update yearly their camera. According to the tests below, it is sometimes even worse than the previous version (Type 116). Is it me not reading this correctly or they just released a camera with a sensor that is not even on par with the old models from other brands ?
It seems to me that it would be better to wait for the new Sony RX1R III for a hopefully better dynamic range and iso...

What is you opinion about the new Leica Q2 ?
