Default Re: Ricoh GX-100 hands on review

They'r both crap at high isos with these differences:
1. The GR in BW mode poduces a film-lke grain at the higher isos
2. The GX100 apparently uses quite heavy noise reduction after iso400 and according to a recent review in dpreview it's pretty obvious. GR doesn't as much.
Also the GR lens is simply better - it is of Leica quality, a beautiful, undistorted 28mm fixed gem.

The electronic viewfinder of the GX100 is actuakky tiny and not terribly bright though visible outside in dailight. Its tilting capability is nigh useless becuase you can't see thrugh it if you hold it wasit high so...

I would seriously consider the GR if I were you and thinking along the lines of the Konica hexar. Or I would wait for the release of the much awaited SIgma DP1 which sports a huge Foveon sensor and a fixed 28mm lens...
