DxOMark test results for Nikon 1 J2 mirrorless camera are out

DxOMark released test results for the Nikon 1 J2 mirrorless camera:

Unsurprisingly, the Nikon 1 J2 doesn’t show significant progress over the Nikon 1 J1, given that they share the same sensor — one that doesn’t seem to have changed at all between the two generations.

 Strengths of the Nikon 1 J2:

  • Color depth.
  • Good dynamic range at its lowest ISO.

Weaknesses of the Nikon 1 J2:

  • No improvement in image quality compared to its predecessor.
  • Low-light performance is penalized by the sensor size.

This is how the Nikon 1 J2 compares to the Sony RX100 (both with 1" sensor) and Canon G1x (1.5" sensor):

And one more comparison - Nikon 1 J2 vs. Olympus OM-D E-M5 vs. Pentax Q:
