DxOMark Sony NEX-7 vs Leica M 240

Leica M Type 240 vs Sony NEX-7 Sensor from DxOMark

DxOMark published their analysis of the new Leica M Type 240's sensor and we compared it against the Sony compact heavyweights, the NEX-7 and the Sony DSC-RX1. The NEX-7 is about the same as the new Leica M in the color depth and the dynamic range scores. It just fell short in the low-light ISO score which we can attribute to having an APS-C sensor compared to the Leica M 240's full frame sensor. We are hoping that the upcoming Sony NEX-7N will have ISO 50 to improve that score.

Leica M Type 240 vs Sony DSC-RX1 Sensor from DxOMark

But the full frame sensor of the RX1 is somewhat ahead of the new Leica M Type 240 according to DxOMark's measurements.

Check out DxOMark's review of the Leica M Type 240.

Thanks DxOMark!
