It’s Dpreview (Click here) that gives us a good idea of how much sharpness you gain with the absence of the Anti Aliasing filter on the RX1R. They write:
“The RX1R does seem to offer a genuine (albeit not enormous) increase in resolution over the RX1.”
As you can see from their comparison you gain a little sharpness. Certainly not reason enough to switch to the RX1R if you already own the RX1.
Techradar (Click here) is the first website having published a full camera review. They write:
“We were excited to test out the Sony RX100 Mark II’s new backlit sensor, and both our labs results and real-world samples indicate that Sony has made some significant improvements to the performance of the sensor, making it an incredibly useful camera to use in low light.”

The RX100MII definitely shows a better image quality!
