Re: WTH? Ricoh GR vs NEX 6 with Sigma 19 vs D800E (link to another thread)

I am the OP at the Richoh forum. As has been said already my test is very unscientific but the sharpness of the Ricoh really stands out.

Click on the link below for a comparison at @f5.6 which I was hoping would improve things being the optimum aperture but it looks like it does not do much for the Sigma 19mm unfortunately -

Far more scientific tests from photozone.de unfortunately confirm the corner performance weakness too - just never realised how bad it was

I love using the NEX6 the new Zeiss lenses look amazing but the new 12mm is just too wide for me and the 24mm too narrow...

75% of my images are taken at 28mm or equiv - the Ricoh works great in that respect for me but that is just me and my style of shooting.

Proper images rather than test shots taken from the Ricoh here if you are interested

I will not be selling my NEX6 however - it is a great all round camera otherwise and being able to change lenses is something the Ricoh will never be able to do.
