Mike Johnson (TOP) recommends the GRDV
Mar 25, 2013

In one of his latest blogs, the Mr Everything of TOP wrote the following exchange:

Chris Nicholls: "For me at the moment it's the M9 with 35mm ASPH Summicron. It's hard for me to imagine another camera that might suit me better, but I wouldn't mind a good pocket-size camera. Any recommendations?"

Mike replies: Always. The two truly pocketable cameras I seem to hear the most good things about are the Sony RX100 and the Ricoh GRD IV, with the Panasonic LX7—which has a Leica lens—bringing home the bronze. Here's my brief experience with the Sony.

Note that in Amazon's unintentionally funny product description of the GRD IV, "1X Optical Zoom" means it's a fixed, single-focal-length lens.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 Sony RX100
