Planning A Low Light Color Shootout: What Should We Include?

We are planning a low light color shootout, focusing on image quality in color mode at night, light levels ranging from <0.1 lux (very dark, nearly no light) to ~5 lux (similar to a lit parking lot or city street).

What cameras should we include? We will be including the latest generation super low light models from each manufacturer, such as:
