I think color issue at least in JPEG is established in dpreview GR3 review though color desaturation in RAW as ISO climbs up is not adequately addressed.

Hi James. I just looked carefully at the GRiii studio test scene. Even at ISO 100 something funky is going on in the test scene with the jpeg - there is indeed obvious desaturation in the color patches and they are very uneven and full of cross-hatching, worms, and other artifacts artifacts - for example, the cyan patch looks pretty wretched.

But I think this is jpeg sharpening and noise reduction settings (as well as sharpening and NR in whatever viewer DPR uses for the RAW file too).

Are you talking about this?

Something's fishy, as I downloaded the JPEGs - both the in-camera and the ACR generated one - and there's no such cross-hatching. Cyan is looking better, too. A display issue with the DPR widget, perhaps?

Alex

I see crosshatches or fine crossing lines and halos in cyan and pink squares in jpeg. I also find color of cyan dirty and that of pink muted in RAW. And it is in ISO 100.

As I said, I downloaded the files and there's no cross hatching.

Alex

OK, I understand what you mean. Downloaded files do not show crosshatches. Strange, dpreview forces me to do unnecessary labor? As I said in other thread I will wait for Imaging Resource GR3 review.
