If you want the best image quality at ISO 100-200 and like to take your time when photographing, buy Sigma. The IQ is amazing, but not everything is about IQ.

If you want something that fits in your pocket, do better on high ISO, have a lot of custom features/options, three times the battery life, much better screen, suited for street photography and more, have built-in Auto ND filter, shutterspeeds from 300sec to 1/4000 and so on, choose Ricoh GR. It's the best all-around 28mm FoV camera out there, IMO.

Thank you for showing the raws as well.

Yes, I'm aware of the GR's better functionality, and that is the reason it is hard for me to decide. I would have thought that in shots such as these, the difference in IQ would be more substantial (in favor of the Sigma), but my eyes can't see this here. Perhaps using a tripod with the DP would have made a difference?
