HI Irakly

no experience with the Ricoh. As the peaking works on contrast, at first look it's not very good in low light . . . until you realise that most people's eyes have a little sparkle in them - I'm ashamed to say I often find myself focusing on the tip of a nose (less a bit) or the corner of glasses (more a bit) with the M9 - it's interesting with focus peaking that you tend to focus actually on the eye.

It'll never replace a rangefinder . . . but it's surprisingly useful - especially with scattered subjects in an image, where you can see exactly what is, and what's not in focus.

all the best
