Leica C Sensor Review and Test Results

DxOMark published their sensor review and test results for the Leica C digital compact system camera which is based on the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LF1 and includes an impressive optical image stabilized Leica DC Vario-Summicron 28-200mm equivalent f2.0-5.9 zoom lens.

Leica C sensor review and test results shows the camera scored a point of 52 and performed an interesting dynamic range.

The small 1/1.7 in 12-Mpix sensor in the Leica C achieved a good score for this size sensor but it’s a bit low when compared with larger sensors.

From DxOMark conclusion:

“With the stabilized zoom and EVF it’s an appealing camera but while the Leica C is a good performer it struggles in comparison with similarly priced, albeit larger sensor rivals, particularly in low light and at high ISO settings. As a compact camera it’s an attractive option although it looks expensive when compared to those models. If the badge isn’t important the functionally equivalent Panasonic can be had for around $200 less and has similar sensor performance, though it, arguably, struggles to match the Leica C’s elegance.”
