SHOOTOUT: Sony RX1 vs Sigma DP2 Merrill vs Fujifilm X-E1

Guide to Mirrorless now includes an extensive three-way comparison of the Sony RX1, Sigma DP2 Merrill, and Fujifilm X-E1.

Included are extensive actual pixels crops from each camera as well as matched-size crops. The dual approach provides useful insight.

How about a grab-bag of differing technologies?

  • 24-megapixel Sony RX1 with full-frame conventional sensor with Zeiss 35mm f/2 lens.
  • 14.75 megapixel Sigma DP2 Merrill with APS-C Foveon true-color sensor with Sigma 30mm f/2.8 lens (45mm equivalent).
  • 16 megapixel Fujifilm X-E1 APS-C unconventional X-Trans sensor with Fujifilm 18-55mm lens (zoomed to 35mm equivalent).

Megapixels are not all the same.

After making this real-world comparison, I feel content as to my preference.
