Sensor Review
Introduction | DxOMark Sensor ranking | Measurement data: Sony RX1R | Sony RX1R vs Sony RX1 | Conclusion

Comparing the two models side-by-side we can see that the lack of an OLPF has impacted the sensor performance somewhat. Remember, we’re not testing resolution here (although we will be publishing the results of that separately, with the R1XR / Carl Zeiss Lens review) but the results are somewhat disappointing for the Dynamic Range, dropping some 0.7 Stops at base ISO over the original model. In practice though this ought not to be noticeable.
