So the optical zoom of LX100, supports the users to capture the required subjects without moving there legs, at the same time it keeps the quality of the images up to the mark. Hence the larger optical zoom of LX100 will sure help you to get images framed as you want.

Aperture Range:- LX100 has a variable aperture of F1.7-F2.8 while RXIR II, has fixed aperture of F2.0. However we have to keep in mind despite of having better aperture at wide-end of the lens Panasonic will not able to provide the amount of DOF that Sony RX1 R II can generate with its F2.0 lens. The biggest reason behind is the difference in sensor size of both the camera. The Sony RX1R II uses fullframe sensor whereas Panasonic LX100 uses a 4/3 format sensor.

Hence, the AF System of Sony DSC-RXIR II helps to track the subject in full frame with wider AF coverage with more sharp and accuracy. On the other side the Panasonic LX100

ISO:- RXIR II has the expanded ISO of 102400 while the LX100 has expanded ISO is limited to 25600, hence RXIR II will give better low-light performance compared to the RX1R II camera. Hence RXIR II captures magnificent images in low- light conditions compare to LX100.

Shutter speed:- As we know the camera with more shutter speed gains more capacity in capturing the fast action subjects. The Panasonic LX 100 has better shutter speed compare to Sony DSC-RXIR II. So the users can capture the fast moving subjects much quicker and easier.

Top Continuous Shooting Speed:- Panasonic LX 100 has better continuous shooting speed of 11fps compare to 5fps of RXIR II.
