DXOMark scores Sony A7RII Aug 27, 2015
DXOMark scores A7RII
DXOMark just posted the A7RII test results and compared it against the best full frame cameras on the market.

Against the A7R, it basically gets the same base ISO DR performance with results within a margin of error (13.9 vs 14.1 EVs). However, there is roughly a 1/2 stop gain starting from ISO 640 until 1600 and a full stop from ISO 3200 and up. Color Sensitivity shows a similar improvement throughout the same ISO range.
There is a higher S/N ratio when compared to the A7R at pretty much all ISO settings. The improvement is about 1dB or about 1/3 of stop.

It's now listed as the best overall camera sensor on the market with DXOMark 98 points but I urge readers to disregard this number and compare SNR 18% (Print), Dynamic Range and Color Sensitivity measurements against other full frame cameras.
