Re: The OP didn't compare the new Ricoh and the X1

Nobody can do that at the moment, for obvious reasons.

He compared the Ricoh's preview samples with the X1 preview samples (and did so in a rather trollish post, by the way).

Funny, I had to look up "trolling" to see if it fit. I guess it does. I admit to trying to stir up interest in the Ricoh camera, as I think Ricoh cameras are the most under-rated cameras around. I've had two of them and found they were very well made and designed. I posed a question in the original post. Should we feel sorry for Leica? I do. It takes a tremendous amount of design hours to produce a new camera like the X1. If Ricoh had not come along, the X1 would have had the field to itself. Now, it has a first rate competition that will take a significant portion of its market away. That's a bit sad for Leica, IMHO.
