Here is a quote from DxOMark:

The new RX1R II achieved an excellent DxOMark score of 97 points, with individual scores of 25.8 bits for color sensitivity, a wide 13.9 EVs dynamic range at base ISO (albeit slightly lower at base than the best tested), and a very good low-light ISO score of 3204 ISO. In terms of rankings, only the Pentax 645Z with its physically larger 43.8 x 32.8mm CMOS sensor (nearly 1.7x the surface area of a full-frame 35mm sensor) is ahead by just over a half-stop in noise levels.

    Isn’t that a non-statement? looking at the sensor size and the difference in pixel count, it can be guestimated without running tests that the noise levels should be where they are?!

      Digital MF was always lacking behind FF in therms of noise levels. This is actually a surprise to me!
