Guys, you can't count

"As for color depth, the Sony has a comfortable lead of +1.67 stops over the G15"

22.5-19.9=2.6, not 1.6. Every bit doubles the number of different values, i.e. a stop.

Hello!

Thanks for your interest in DxOMark.

2.6 bit for color depth means only 1.67 stop. For color depth a difference of 1.5 bits equals 1 stop of difference.
For further information please check the color sensitivity computation which is describe here:
