CosminMunteanu: Well, as expected. Excellent ISO performance. Seems a stop better than the GR.An A2 with the 18mm f:2.0 pancake would also be interesting choice.
Stop better? You can't understand it without DXO tests. Real and marked ISO could be rather different. Remember X100's ISO situation. ISO400 is real ISO254. ISO800 is ISO504, And...Attention!!! ISO1600 is ISO1000. ISO3200 is 1012. 6400 is 1076. Great trick with ISO.
ogl: Ricoh GR has MUCH better lens.
I've checked samples and studio comparison and found GR's lens is very sharp. X70 has rather bad edges.
Ricoh GR has MUCH better lens.
ogl: The work of AF is not impressive although too many AF points...
compare with AF-C in Nikon

ogl: FE24-70mm F2.8 - is it Tamron?
Sony is one of the owner of Tamron. And several Tamron zooms were made under name Minolta, by the way.

It's was much cheaper in my childhood

SphericalAberration: Not enough to tempt Ricoh GR users to jump.Do like the shutter speed dial and EV comp dial.If it had a 40mm view or distance scale on the lens ring then it would have resulted in an instant order.
GRIII will have more MP and more features
I don't undestand how X70 could be smaller than Ricoh GR
B&W photos made in DXO or Photoshop from RAW colours photos from cameras without AA filter are much better. Better tonality, better shades of gray and black. DXO has very good simulation of B&W films. The result is outstanding. If you add some PP, it would be sweet spot.
I see very soft pictures in JPEG and RAW from Leica M246 in studio and much sharper from K-3 and Leica Q.
ISO 3 280 000 is pure marketing move and pure SOFT ISO.
sportyaccordy: Ultra wide? More like kinda sorta wide. I was hoping this would be for FX... that would have been something worth talking about
This lens covers from ultra-wide till wide-angle range. 14-16 mm are ultra-wide in 35 mm equiv. and 17-20 are wide angle.
Film lenses were called ultra-wide from 8 till 24 mm. Wide-angle - 25-35 mm.
Really bad lens.
