Re: Ricoh GRD4 vs. Sony DSC RX100

I tried the RX100 and did not like it. Too small for one thing (it really needs a grip), but more importantly I just could not get pictures that I liked. There was something off about them (the JPGs). I was also able to open RAW files in RAW Developer and they are much, much better, but they need significant lens correction (until there are profiles in products like Lightroom). Back it went.

The GRD4 may not be "as good" in some respects but overall I prefer it. It someday too will have a larger sensor.

Regarding the DP2M, I have one on order. I have a love/hate relationship with Sigma cameras and I just had to try this one. What I've heard is that the JPGs are far better than in the past. Still, I'd shoot RAW to take full advantage of the files. Looking forward to it.

A lot of people seem to like the RX100, though.
