The TL2’s colour error is higher than its key rivals, although our test is made more complicated by the fact that the TL2 does not shoot Adobe RGB JPEGs.
The TL2’s noise performance is generally good. However, while it stretches ahead of the Olympus Pen-F, it can’t match the Fujifilm X-Pro2 or the full-frame Sony A7 II.
The Sony A7 II is the winner for dynamic range, but only just. The TL2 is a close second at low-medium ISOs, and starts to ease ahead at high ISO settings.
