    Not sure that the GX1 will have better low light results… The rating by DxOMark is only for the sensor…which is bigger and so more sensitive to light…. However, as you say… The RX100m2 lens is 1 stop faster across it’s range and let’s in more light at each focal length… Might be closer the these sensor measurements claim…. Dying to see a real test and comparison of both….
