If ISO and colors are priority, would Nikon A compete?
Nov 30, 2013

My priorities are hi ISO for restaurant and party work, and colors.  Nikon A DxO ISO rating is 20% higher.  Reviewers praise Nikon colors.

GR gets revered and lots of love.  Nikon A gets no coverage.

I do not care about fast AF or corners.

Should I look at the A?  Missing some important consideration?

I trained myself to think that the GR 47mm trick is to visualize a small square in the middle of the LCD. That keeps me far from the subject and avoids 28mm distortion.

I'm willing to do RAW or jpegs.

Originally I left the A due to some weird behavior of ISO on P in the dark.  The camera chose ISO 6400.  But on Auto it was OK.
