Re: Size: GRD IV + GV-2 vs X-E1

I have a GXR and  a CX, the GRD is about the same size as the CX.

The GXR looks so much bigger, and i think the reason is the height,

An XE-s is even higher, so the feel between XE and GRD will be huge, the GRD is a camera that fits in your pocket, the XE not.

The external EVF can be removed  and you still have a small camera.

So size wise the GRD wins always.

IQ , functionality i fear the XE wins, as the GRD has only 28mm and a small sensor.

Nevertheless, i think the IQ of the GRD might even mee the XE, simply due to the prime lens, specifically set up for the sensor.

So it comes down to how you want to use it.

Joel Stern has both GRD and XE, sent him a PM about this.
