DxOMark - Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1R 2013-08-23 12-56-20

It’s not just the DxOMark score of 91 points that stands out; every aspect of the sensor performance is terrific. There are no specific weaknesses revealed from our sensor tests. The excellent Color Depth of 25 bits at base ISO will deliver nuanced shades, while the Dynamic Range of 13.6Evs is very good, though not quite at the level of the Nikon D600 (at 14.3Evs), for example. As a full –frame sensor you would expect the he Sony’s Low light score to be excellent and it is at 2537 ISO.
