Canon G9 versus GX100 - Lens or RAW
Sep 10, 2007

I just purchased this past weekend the Canon G9 for $500. It's 12 megapixels at the lower ISO is pretty damn good. I have on Flickr a link of test images for people to see and review. I was seriously considering getting the Ricoh and I do own a much loved GR1S -- so I know the quality of their lenses. However, the 6 sec write time for RAW on the Ricoh is slow compared to the practically real time RAW writing of the G9. For street shooting the G9 is almost the perfect camera minus the 28mm lens and visa versa the GX100 is almost the perfect small digital camera minus the fast Raw buffer.

Also, the GX100 is a smaller camera.

So, time will tell if I made the right decision - it is a tough one with plus and minuses on both sides.

Enjoy and any comments appreciated.
