After the LX7 also the Olympus XZ-2 got tested at DxOmark (Click here). They write: “Its overall sensor performance scores are a significant improvement on the original XZ-1 and easily measure up to the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 and Canon PowerShot G15.

    I wish I could put the LX7 lens on the Olympus body.

      Why? The Olympus lens is absolutely brilliant!

    The DXO mark testing says nothing about the differences in lens for the two cameras. With the LX7 you are paying for the lens. And right now at $300 that camera is definitely the better bargain.

    XZ-1 34 points
    XZ-2 49 points (DR 0,9EV better, but color depth and ISO better too)
    Significant improvement.
    But LX7 gets 50 points and is cheaper.

    And Sony RX100 get 66 points (ISO is not so important, because XZ-2 has faster lens, but DR is better 1,1EV in Sony and color depth better), and it is not bigger (even smaller) then XZ-2. Sony gets the same result as Canon 60D with APS-C sensor.
    Olympus OM-D gets 71 points.

      Thats why this test is not very interesting…..

    Useless tests.
    Look what they wrote at mirrorless rumors: Pentax Q10 on par with GF5.
    There was also a ridiculous thread somewhere about RX1 vs E-M5.
    Sorry but I have to laugh at these ridiculous scorings.
    The comparison you have to make yourself and judge by your own eyes the compromise you are going to make. Since every buy will be a compromise of IQ vs usability vs … etc.
    The only indication that is clear are the measured results put in the grapghs, the scoring is idiocy.

  • What? The scores must be accurate… I have a D800 so I’m invested in it!

  • frankv

    Oh my god, the pana has 147 iso’s and the oly has 216 of them! So, that makes it 50% better then? I’ll take it!
