Nikon 1 V3 Gets DxOMarked

DxO Labs have posted their findings on the new CX-format sensor found in the Nikon 1 V3 compact system camera. The overall DxOMark Sensor Score is 52, which does not differ significantly from the results of the Nikon 1 V1 (54) and V2 (50). It's also very close to the Nikon 1 AW1 (51), although its "Sports (Low-light ISO)" score is decidedly lower. The Nikon 1 V3 comes with a new 18-megapixel sensor, but the real improvements the camera offers have more to do with features than image quality: the camera boasts a new and significantly enhanced AF system, faster continuous shooting while maintaining autofocus, and expanded video functionality.

The camera you should be comparing this latest offering by Nikon to is the Sony RX10. It is a 1" sensor , is the same price when the Nikon is equipped with the view finder .

The result is on DXO, you can compare it, and you will see that, compared to RX100 and RX1, the sensor of Nikon V3 is just a flop.

Comparing an Rx1 to a v3 is as stupid as your comment. Of course a 1 inch sensor will be a flop compared to a full frame sensor. I am just suggesting to compare apples with apples and oranges to oranges. If you go out shooting with a v3 and an RX 10, you are comparing performance in a real world test, you would find the results from both cameras very pleasing and the experience of using the great as well.
If you insist on comparing them to rediculous bench marks where any Dx camera will win over a Cx of course the Cx will fail ! The bench mark itself is scewd.
The fact is that all versions of the Nikon 1 inch sensor have been unfairly judged by a bench mark for a different kind of camera. But, everyone who goes out to shoot with one of the Nikon 1 inch oferrings always has a much different and much more positive opinion.

The DxO ratings are of no value really in knowing what kind of photos a camera can take.
Numbers mean nothing to real photographers.
You will never know what a camera or lens can do till you shoot with it, then you will know what it does and if you like it or not.

I have used the Nikon V1 for two years in doing my serious landscape work.

It is only a 10MP sensor but it produces raw files that have an analog look to them.

As a result my post processing allows me to get a wide dynamic range film look that larger sensor cameras can't offer.

I just got done renting and trying out the V3 and let me tell you it has the same analog look as the V1 but has much, much, more detailed raw files that have an even more analog look.

You can view my V1 and V3 pics here and compare them yourself:
