Read on to see it performs in our labs.
Sony’s update to the Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 includes provision for a optional EVF and a useful pull-out rear LCD, but the head line news is the inclusion of a newly developed back-illuminated Exmor R BSI-CMOS sensor with superior low-light performance. Read on to see how well the new sensor performs in our labs.
<div id="linkdxomark">This a comment for <a href="http://www.dxomark.com/index.php/Cameras/Camera-Sensor-Database/Panasonic/LUMIX-DMC-LF1">this page on the website</a></div>It would have been a lot more relevant to compare this with Panasonic's own DMC-LX7, which has a similar sensor, and the Nikon Coolpix P7700, which also has a long zoom.
The reviewer seems to have completely missed the point that the LF1 is a travel zoom aimed at people who want to look like photographers not tourists...
