Sony RX1

Relative Sensor Size

The Sony Cybershot DSC-RX1R produces 24-megapixel (6000 X 4000) images images from a full frame sensor, which is considerably larger than both APS-C and Micro Four Thirds in area, leading to very high per-pixel image quality.

Compared to its 20-megapixel RX100 sibling, the RX1R has a huge sensor, with 7.4X the area (2.7X linearly), suggesting that its noise behavior should be roughly 2.7X lower than the RX100.

The RX1R was released about a year after the Sony RX1. The RX1R model lacks an anti-aliasing filter, which allows higher micro contrast for very fine details, but has a stronger tendency to moiré. It apparently also has a tweaked and modified sensor and electronics (Sony is not entirely clear on the changes). See the review of the Sony RX1.
