"The bigger deal is that, even with the use of the proper updated ACR color profiles, the Ricoh doesn’t handle colors as well as the Nikon IMHO, but creates files that are better than the Nikon for B&W conversions. Ming Thein raised this in his review and I initially doubted it and figured a lot of it was down to the color profile being updated. But the more I work with both cameras, the more I think he was on to something. The Nikon colors are just dead on. The Ricoh colors don’t have anything like the red issues that they had without the ACR profile, but the blues and greens still seem off to me. On some shots I can get them right with a fairly simple WB adjustment, but sometimes I’m left scratching my head and on some back to back landscapes, just couldn’t come close to getting the Ricoh raw files to my liking."

And if you'd kept reading in that thread you'd see I concluded it was mostly an exposure issue, not a color issue, because my greens in less tricky light, including brighter and darker came out just fine. And bumping the exposure on those specific images was a large part of the fix. Don't cherry pick the quotes you like and leave out the ones you don't like.


Oh OK.  Still an issue for the GR no?
