Introduction | Measurements: Excellent low noise levels | Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1R II vs. Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1R vs. Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1 Impressive low noise levels | Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1R II vs. Sony A7R II vs. Leica Q Typ 116: Excellent high ISO DR | Conclusion

Conclusion

It isn’t any surprise to see that the 42-Mpix sensor in the Sony Cyber-shot RX1R II is related to the unit in the Sony A7R II; however, the performance improvements over the earlier models are significant and help regenerate some the interest lost to the superb Leica Q. In terms of sensor dynamics, the Sony has the upper hand, but whether that and the inclusion of a built-in EVF is enough comes down to personal choice. 

While the two models adopt equally impressive lenses, it is the focal length, and thus the field of view, that’s likely to be most important single determining factor when choosing between the two. If you like the 35mm focal length, then the upgraded sensor in the Sony RX1R II makes a compelling case.
