marike6: GR RAW files are noisier than Coolpix A files, both in the RAW Comparison tool and on DxOMark sensor ratings scores (GR's 972 ISO vs Coolpix A's 1164 ISO), while colors from the DNG files aren't as good by DPR's own admission (see Con #2) and in the sample images. Yet DPR has RAW IQ between the GR and Coolpix A as the same?
It's can't be lens difference as both lenses scored identically on DxOMark Lens Test (see DxOMark front page for GR lens test).
It's seems fairly obvious that the GR has better ergonomics along with the superb GR menu system. But the A has the class leading Sony Exmor sensor, and seems to produce a better looking files / images (See review samples).
My K-5IIs has green color cast when I use DXO Optics :)
There are marked ISO and real ISO - DXO is not the Bible. There is measurement inaccuracy. First of all. The second - do you really think that we could see the noise difference between 972 and 1164.:) ?
Your argument is not weighty.
Go to measurements - and we will see that ISO of Nikon and Ricoh = 99% identical. If you pay attention at SNR18% - we can see that maximal difference in noise 1 dB at ISO6400 in favor of Nikon. But the diffrence at ISO100-3200 is from 0.3 tiil 0.6 dB.
A difference in low-light ISO of 25% represents 1/3 EV and is only slightly noticeable. The difference between 1164 and 972 is 1/4 EV.
Outstanding. Well done, Ricoh.
ogl: New Imaging Technologies (NIT) offers world class CMOS imaging sensors based upon a unique and patented pixel technology which provides intrinsic high dynamic range response of more than 140dB, no noticeable fixed pattern noise and operability without image artifacts to more than 90°C.
Are you sure that Fuji-Panasonic technology for digital cameras with big sensors?

It could be sensors for smartphones. Small sensors with high dynamic range - from 87 till 140 dB are well-known 10 years ago.
Kodak 40 MP sensor has 70 dB dynamic range. 645D with such sensor has 12.6 EV dynamic range. D800E's sensor has close to 80 dB.
The main question - how big will this new sensor be? If it will be small, it's not interesting at all
Important remark: 1.2 times higher sensitivity than Panasonic sensors have now.
I don't understand...It's easy to buy any mirrorless camera with kit zoom. Smaller and faster. Cheaper. With the same result. Or maybe better.But....$2850 for slowest zoom and APS-C sensor...
Funny. Missed focus
This lens for Pentax is already at BHPHoto for some time...Strange news.
RichRMA: A 25mm f/0.95 Schneider CCTV lens for a 1" (about the size of Nikon's 1 system sensor) sensor costs $2400.00. I figure $900 isn't too much for a 30mm f/1.2 lens.
Schneider - maybe, but all another 1" CCTV lenses are much cheaper.
85/3.2 in 35 mm.
Really good for such small sensor
micahmedia: "...described as a normal lens, offering 'the same angle of view as the human eye,' according to the company."
Bah! Not the "same angle of view", but similar amount of distortion. Angle of view for a single human eye is wider than a 14mm. Maybe as much as a 10mm in some people. In any case, it's wider than either of these lenses, and the description is incorrect.
It's a common mistake, but a mistake nonetheless.
Absurd. It's just marketing myth.
bacchanalia of Samsung 20 MP gadgets...
d2f: I did not read anywhere that the new lens are AF, are they?
What about 12/2.8? 32/1.8 is with AF, but no info about 12 mm
Are 12/2.8 with AF or not?
The result is real junk...XZ-2 is far better.
Timmbits: Page 9, aside from the moiré where the Sigma excels, the Ricoh puts the Nikon to shame! The test-shot differences are striking.
I'm surprised to not see half the posts being criticism for no viewfinder... are those three people asleep?
There are 2 types of OVF.
You can get 21, 28 and 35 mm with Ricoh GR.
The lens of Ricoh kills Nikon Coolpix A.
