Bravo Sony. Again.

The pictures do not open in the separate window. Is it just me?

ekaton: Hey scuba divers, look elsewhere. This looks great for parachuting, parasailing, canoeing, sailing, motorbike or horseback riding, fishing, hunting, climbing, expeditions, war zones reportage, camping activities. Some underwater capabilities does not make it a dedicated underwater camera. So don`t get obsessed about it.

It would be interesting to see how the IQ of a Pro compares against the TG-4, FT-6 and the like. I bet it couldn't hold a candle next to this Leica, though.

youknownothing: Hi everyone.

I've been reading everyone comments and it seemed that most of you like this over the Fuji X70.

I have posted a question regarding this, would it be better to buy this instead of the x70? But I've heard that fujifilm does have great color processing. Is buying GR II worth it?

Yes

Now if only Ricoh could find a way to include a EVF without altering the design and the size (at least not by much)....

In the studio scene, the images from the GR make the others look like they are out of focus, especially offcenter. Just look how soft the faces look from Fuji and Leica, RAW ISO 200. A lot of false color from Ricoh, though. And those high ISO's from Fuji are so clean but lack detail. Surely aren't they cooked?

You know what I mean. There are scuba resorts that you don't need to go deeper than 15m to see wonderful marine life.

It's obviously not for (deep) scuba divers. But for the rest of people who do activities like those you mention, including scuba in shallow reef waters, there should have been a good compact camera a long time ago. No, the TG-4 is not good enough.

We've been shouting for years for a waterproof large sensor compact and the first firm to come out with one is... Leica? Oh, the irony. I just hope this will drive other manufacturers to make one with a more affordable price. APSC would be wonderful but a 1" sensor could be enough.

I'd have the GRII for its non-retro design.

A great evolution of the TZ series. I still got my TZ5 after so many years and it's the sweetest small sensor camera ever to pass from my hands. I has 10x zoom and works faultlessly despite some serious abuse. It even got swallowed by a sea wave once and I thought it was dead but after a couple of days it resurrected for good. This TZ100 has also a 10x zoom but it's a totally different beast. It's incredible that it has a far bigger sensor, a EVF, a flash, twin dials, 10x zoom and so many features in basically the same pocketable form factor. I think it's time to put the TZ5 to the cupboard with the treasured memorabilia and get this one.

I doubt it. But then it depends on what "usable" means for each person. One person's garbage is often some other person's treasure.

400k MAYBE will be usable, and we'll see at some point how usable. But, obviously pgeorges doesn't need any samples to guess that 3mil ISO will be a bunch of noise.

3 million ISO is so obviously marketing gone over the top. Do you think pics will be usable? Maybe low res vid.

jesus_freak: Great news for Canon and Pentax users and the industry as a whole. My only hope is that Sony and Samsung will throw their hats into the pro APS-C ring and continue to innovate. Competition is a good thing!

I feel a bit that Nikon wouldn't listen to its crowd hadn't Canon produced the 7Dii.

olivemoonstudio: Glad to see Nikon place the ISO button in a better location, the control layout looks much improved.

Really! It's more useful to have the ISO button on top right panel than top left panel or, even worse, back panel. That's something "stolen" from Canon and Pentax.
