Nasim Mansurov at PhotographyLife: Battle of the mirrorless (part 1), the Nikon 1 J2, Canon EOS-M, Sony NEX-F3, Sony NEX-5R/NEX-6, Sony NEX-7 and Olympus OM-D EM-5 duke it out above iso 1600.

The Nikon J2 clearly looks the worst in the group

I really respect Mr. Mansurovs musings and reviews, but this 'battle' comes straight from the land of bloody obvious. There's a mini sensor (the Nikon 1 J2), a bit larger one (Olympus E-M5) and then a whole bunch of Aps-c sized ones. At least throw in a Fujifilm X-E1 in the mix for some real fun. I guess part 2 (Dynamic range) will be more interesting.

"As I have already mentioned before, I will be measuring dynamic range myself going forward without having to rely on other websites for the data. It will be interesting to see how my data compares to other sites like DxOMark. I am not

planning to do anything super intensive and I bet my measurements will not be without issues and errors, but I believe it is something worth trying. Hopefully it will give a different perspective to testing sensors.

Here is the first test that shows the low light performance of the following mirrorless cameras: Nikon 1 J2, Canon EOS-M, Sony NEX-F3, Sony NEX-5R/NEX-6, Sony NEX-7 and Olympus OM-D EM-5. Since these cameras all look excellent at ISO levels between 100 and 800, I decided to only show ISO performance at 1600 and above. Take a look!"
