They both lack sharpness. I'm sorry for the people who think they'll make great shots with these expensive gadgets, but both of them are short on image quality. Yes, the 808 is better - at least if you can take your mind off the considerable levels of chromatic aberration -, but what's the point? For the price you'll be better off with an enthusiast compact camera like the Sony RX100.
Chris_in_Osaka: At least this wooden grip blends in. The one on the Olympus E-P5 luxury edition looks like a glued on afterthought.
That's because it is a glued-on afterthought. Still it looks a hundred times more luxurious than the Ricoh.
FreedomLover: Still only f2.8.
You don't need much more with a wide-angle lens. f/2 could be convenient for available light, but for wide-angle applications you need all depth of field you can get. Forget 'creamy bokeh': you need 50mm and more for that.
The 'Hasselblad syndrome' has struck Ricoh.
I'm disappointed. This article has been posted six hours ago and no one complained about the "equivalent aperture" yet.
Just a Photographer: It's a hoax that will come true. I'll see this sony/hasselblad camera making its debut on Photokina 2014 as the Hasselblad Galaxy selling for a retail price of $9998,-
I'm not sure Samsung will license the 'Galaxy' trademark, but the pricing is plausible.
thx1138: Shouldn't that be minimum shutter speed 1/16000, not maximum shutter speed which is 60s. Actually you have them interchanged in the specs.
Yes. It's the shortest exposure time available. We're measuring exposure time, not the speed at which the curtains move.
This time Hassy doesn't have to go the lengths it went with the Lunar: in this case it's hard to make the raw material uglier than it is....Oh wait, there will always be exotic woods to get the job done.
No oil painting, but a large step towards the democratization of full frame sensors, which is good news. Still I hope one day a new Maitani will come and design a small, practical and beautiful full frame DSLR with a proper optical viewfinder.
ryanshoots: Beautiful. It would be wonderful to live there.
Ladies and gentlemen, let's welcome ryanshoots, the man from Mars! :D
Who cares? We're all busy discussing the dual pixel AF from Canon, don't bother us with artsy-fartsy pictures with no bokeh!
ManuelVilardeMacedo: It is ridiculous that some blame the test for the poor OVF AF results!As for me, Canon can include their 'dual pixel' autofocus system among its least of Most Relevant Innovations. People should congratulate the ones who developed this technology, as it's definitely an advance for photography....Still it puzzles me to see manual focus works even better than 'dual pixel'. One would be forgiven to ask why they bothered inventing autofocus at all.
Typo: not "least of Most Relevant Innovations". It was meant to read "list of Most Relevant Innovations". Makes a lot more sense. Sorry for the inconvenience.
I might have agreed with you if I had no experience of manual focus cameras with good focusing screens. Besides, with AF chances are you'll end up with the camera focusing an area you didn't want.

Wye Photography: Very suitable for your bum pocket. I wonder does the curve fit a really huge ass or a small ass!
I'm sure Mr Hugh Jass would love this phone.
At least you had time to yawn. I fell asleep instantly.
USD $1,013. That's kinda steep for a phone, isn't it?
Where's the hotshoe? And those recessed dials must be a pain to operate.Another Leica for frivolous people. This Marc Newson gave us the Pentax K-01; wasn't that enough to issue a restraining order to keep him away from cameras?It was for a good cause, though...
