Analyzed alongside the firm’s RX100 II, a super compact model with the same 20-Mpix 1-inch type sensor it’s clear to see that the sensor in RX10 has a near identical response, albeit perhaps with some tweaks in performance. Overall it has the equivalent to a +1/3 stop gain in IQ for color depth and a +1/3 stop wider dynamic range but there’s no advantage in low light. Ostensibly, the RX10 has the same sensor, which has allowed the firm to design a high-speed high-ratio zoom to match, albeit with a body that has a very different form factor to the pocket-friendly RX100 models.

It revives the large-sensor, long-zoom concept of the R1, but utilizing the same 1"-type BSI CMOS sensor, meaning it can offer a balance of high image quality and long zoom in a sensibly sized package. In this case it means the RX10 is able to offer a 24-200mm equivalent F2.8 lens.
