i bought a CX6 like a month ago,
sold my CX3 a year ago, bought a GXR +S10,but i hungered too much for the zoom, and the CX6 vs S10 also has; scene bleach bypass, easier video-my teenage daughter uses it at concerts- and is smaller.
vs CX3 i find it nothing but better,it is faster, quality at long zoom is better, NR still is shxxt, never off, IQ is the same, from XC3 to CX6 is worth doing, give it time on ebay, certainly check the .de , i got a nearly brand new one for 130 euro including extras
So for US collegues, seems Ricoh will not bring the CX6 to the US, so buy it in Europ i think.
Check my galleries, i already uploaded cx6 pics.
