DxOMark published their test results for the Leica X Vario camera ($2,486.95). Here is their conclusion:

When announced, the Leica- X Vario received, perhaps unjustly, widespread criticism for the Vario Elmar’s ‘slow’ maximum aperture (f6.3) at long end. It’s of course just 1/3 stop ‘slower’ than f5.6, but it does serve as a reminder of the fastidious nature of lens selection. Despite that, the sensor in the Leica X Vario is an excellent performer, especially with regard to its high SNR. However, while the promising camera specification and the low-light performance may placate the critics in some way, at just shy of $3,000, the X Vario isn’t for everyone.

    So, it’s the same 16MP used on Nikon, Pentax, Ricoh, Sony, etc.

      And it’s the same sensor on the Leica X2, which is also made by Sony.
