"DXO Scores V1 Higher than V2"


Pennsylvania, US
          

I just read on the DPR Nikon 1 Forum that DXO scored the V1 sensor at 54 and the V2 at 50. See the DPR Nikon 1 Forum for more details or go to the DXO site. Glad I got the V1 kit for $299!!

Well, they did pack 60% more pixels onto that same little sensor size. So I guess it just proves that more pixels doesn't equal better IQ.

Well, the question is also on how meaningful the difference really is. I bet that in most cases you wouldn't be able to tell the difference.

Noise on the V2 is higher than the V1, but still less than my first DSLR - the D200. Depending on the application, it can require some post production noise reduction. Ergonomically, the V2 is a lot easier to handle.

My two cents. Its a trade off between poor ergonomics and some other faults on the V1 and a slightly lower DXO score. I chose ease of use. Based on current usage I have no problem with my choice, time will tell if that remains the case.

I totally agree. Ergonomics and location of the selectors/dials makes the V2 a lot easier to use.

It took a lot of time to learn to use the toggle to adjust shutter speed on the V1 (which was different from any other Nikon I have used). Now switching between the V1 and V2, I find myself trying to toggle the top selector dial. I prefer the top selector dial.
