Sensor Review
Introduction | Sony NEX 5-R sensor performance | Sony NEX 5-R versus competition | Conclusion

The Sony NEX-5R delivers good results with excellent dynamic range and elevated low-light sensitivity for a sensor of this size, thanks to its minimum sensitivity setting of 100 ISO. This Sony mid-range hybrid compact should enjoy the same kind of success as its predecessor. However, Sony cannot rest on its laurels: even though Sony maintains an edge over its competitors, the results for the Olympus OM-D and Pen lines show that the gap has been reduced.
