Hi

I have no experience with street photo, but why is Ricoh GR favorite?. I mean the Sony RX100 has sharp lenses, amazing af, EVF and not least zoom

Explain for me plz

The only thing I can think of is the Ricoh has a larger sensor which performs better in the low light some street photography entails. At the same time the 28mm equiv lens on the Ricoh seems, to me, to be too wide for effective street photography where you want to maintain some distance between you and the people you are photographing. Ask this question in the Ricoh or open talk forums so people who actually use the Ricoh can tell you why.
