How to force checksum in dry-run

I want to use rsync to diff two folders (with checksum) by using dry-run and itemize changes like this:
rsync -rni --checksum /dir1/ /dir2/> ~/Desktop/diff.log

However, I read that in --dry-run rsync wont do checksums. Is this true? If it is, is there a way to force checksums i dry-run mode?
