From DxOMark conclusion:

“On paper at least, the Nikon 1 J5 looks like a serious contender in the mid-range mirrorless segment. In the past, the Nikon 1 models have lagged behind in sensor performance but with the shift to this back-illuminated 20.8-Mpix sensor, that’s no longer the case. The sensor in the Nikon 1 J5 is comparable in performance to the unit found in the Sony Cyber-shot RX100 models, and we assume it’s the same or at least a related sensor. It’s a welcome boost for Nikon in this segment, competing not only with the small Sony compacts but also some larger (Micro-Four-Thirds) sensors, such as that found in the highly-regarded Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100. The Nikon 1 J5 is the first mirrorless model with interchangeable lenses to adopt this sensor, and as a result, the future of the Nikon 1 system as a whole now looks a lot more promising.”
