Sony RX10 II Sensor Review at DxOMark: Improved Sensor Performance

DxOMark published their sensor review of the new Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 II camera, which is currently in stock at Amazon for $1,298.

According to DxOMark test results, Sony RX10 II gets an overall DxOMark score of 70 points, which is a good score and the same as the Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV, it is 1 single point better than it’s predecessor RX 10 and it beats the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 and Canon PowerShot G3 X.

From DxOMark conclusion:

Although detractors may gripe about the lack of any real improvements in sensor performance over its predecessor, the new stacked-type back-illuminated sensor in Sony Cyber-shot RX10 II performs particularly well, given the advances from the high-speed readout. Such advances include high bit-rate 4K (UHD) recording, ”slo-mo” recording, and lowered distortion or skew effects from rolling shutter. While the design has allowed the addition of the necessary electronics, there has been no negative impact on sensor performance. In fact, the noise floor, color sensitivity and dynamic range remain more or less unchanged over its conventional back-illuminated predecessor.
