C-Lux vs DMC FZ200: The sensors

Boasting an area of 116mm² (0.19 sq.in.) the sensor of the C-Lux is a lot larger than the DMC FZ200's chip at 28mm² (0.04 sq.in.). In most cases a larger sensor will yield better results in low light, a considerable advantage in many situations (think: interior images, dusk or dawn etc.), a clear disadvantage of the Compact format.

Better choice: Leica C-Lux
