Here are the scores for the NEX-3 and NEX-5 compared with the A450:

The NEX cameras show very small improvements versus the A450 — so small that they should be hardly noticeable on final images.

When compared to competitive products from Panasonic and Olympus in the same category, the NEX’s larger sensor clearly makes a difference. The NEX cameras show an edge for all three DxOMark Scores, followed by the Panasonic GH1 among the different comparable products.

Disclaimer: This dxomark review evaluates only the selected camera’s RAW sensor performance metrics (i.e., Color Depth, Dynamic Range, and Low-Light ISO), and should not be construed as a review of the camera’s overall performance, as it does not address such other important criteria as image signal processing, mechanical robustness, ease of use, flexibility, optics, value for money, etc. While RAW sensor performance is critically important, it is not the only factor that should be taken into consideration when choosing a digital camera.
