Nikon Z6 Sensor gets DxOMarked

DxOMark published their Nikon Z6 sensor review and test results. The full frame mirrorless Nikon Z6 camera is the low-light high speed model of the company’s lineup. According to DxOMark, the score for the Nikon Z6 full frame sensor is 95, one point below Sony a7 III.

To underline Nikon Z6 and Sony a7 III uses the same image sensor produced by Sony IMX410. See also Nikon Z6 vs Nikon Z7 vs Nikon D850 Specifications Comparison

Conclusions from DxOMark:

With the introduction of the mirrorless Z 6, Nikon has adopted one of the best-performing full-frame 24 MP BSI-CMOS sensors. At base ISO, it has very good color and a wide dynamic range; additionally, the sensor has outstanding dynamic range at mid-ISO settings, and has particularly good low-light performance at high ISOs.

Even though it performs exceptionally well in our tests, the Z 6 is still only slightly ahead of the sensor in the 2014 Nikon D750. Nevertheless, while we can’t gauge the impact of its 273 on-chip phase-detection points, it also performs at a similarly high level to its closest rival, the Sony A7 III, sharing many similarities in performance (albeit with some subtle differences).
