What is the best APS-C digital camera according to DxO Mark?

What is the best APS-C digital camera according to DxO Mark? The answer may surprise you – the winner is the Pixii APS-C digital rangefinder camera with Leica M-mount:

Update: Pixii cameras are now available for sale at B&H Photo.

The full test review can be found here – here is the DxO Mark’s conclusion:

“Announced a few years ago, the Pixii rangefinder, in its latest iteration as the A1571, is certainly an intriguing proposition. Although not full-frame, at least it has a state-of-the-art APS-C size BSI CMOS sensor, while the absence of a rear screen and a dedicated monochrome DNG option lends a more analog-like user experience that enthusiasts will find attractive. It’s still not exactly cheap either, but rangefinder alternatives such as Leica M10 and the latest M11 model are much more expensive. Even the Leica Q2 fixed-lens compact isn’t low priced either. Pre-owned Leica rangefinders tend to hold their value as well, with the 12 1/2-year-old Leica M9 and its highly prized full-frame 18 MP CCD available at around the same price as the Pixii. Some may argue about the inconvenience of the 1.5x crop, especially when pre-visualizing the use of full-frame lenses, but as a rangefinder camera with a Leica M mount, there’s still a lot to like about the Pixii.”
