Comparing apples to oranges?  Perhaps you should have used a Sigma 30 lens.

I was comparing specific camera/lens combinations that I personally use most. This was not a sensor test as such, if you read the entire original thread you will find that I did however do a test with the Sigma 30mm at optimum aperture as I could not believe how bad the 19mm was compared to the Ricoh - the 30mm did A LOT better but still does not have the sharpness of the RicohGR not because it is a bad lens but due to the fact that the NEX6 has a AA filter and the Ricoh does not.


These are all unscientific tests but it is still clear to me personally that Ricoh have managed to build an amazing lens/camera combination that although limited in scope/abilities compared to the NEX6 or NikonD800E has amazing image quality out of the box.

I only meant to suggest that a better comparison would have been with the Sigma,many 30 because of. It's similarity to the Ricohs

28mm lens.
