I wonder what conditions cause the purple blobs to show up? Do they show up in RAW and jpg? Do you have a sample to show us please?

Had the same issue with the GRI (APS-C), if you check the FlickR group you can spot them easily in quite a lot of night shots. Harsh light sources, strangely independent of the distance, in a specific angle caused them, both in RAW and JPG. Was one of the reason I sold it and would be one of the things I would look for as a potential GRIII buyer. Didn't know that the GRDIV had it too.

Here's the original thread, the photo used there is mine:



I believe that happened a couple of times to me as well on the GR I. It happens quite a lot on the GRDIV.

i have never seen it on the GXR 28mm though. In my opinion the rendering from the GXR 28mm is the most pleasant of all the Ricoh digital cams, It’s a beauty.

Back when I was using my GXR, I was more impressed by the rendition of the 50mm equivalent. If it had got a better EVF and a larger buffer I probably would still be using it
