mmditter: I know this is silly, but I just can't get past the fact that the Ricoh is one u-g-l-y ugly camera. It has proven itself over the years and 3 generations of GR models, but man, it's hard to look at. Both cameras are excellent, and I've seen outstanding results from both by excellent photographers. But I'd buy the fuji on looks. There, I said it.

You should certainly try it. The GR Iii provides beautiful images, at least in raw.

That's the hobbyist mentality that Fujifilm thrives on: they buy a camera for its looks.

fitzrovian: I own the GR III and the Fujifilm X70 which I no longer use.

The Ricoh is solidly built and compact. I don't need a viewfinder or LCD for street. A camera this so very compact and stealthy can get you shots unobtainable with monsters such as the X100F.

Autofocus on the GR III is execrable; Ricoh engineers should be ashamed.

Snap is excellent; also auto-focus has greatly improved with the latest firmware.

On article Ricoh GR III review (666 comments in total)

Out of all of my cameras, the GR III, has proven to be the only one mostly invisible on the street, allowing me to get the shots I want.

On article Panasonic Lumix G9 vs Olympus OM-D E-M1 II (261 comments in total)

I've owned an E-M1 mark II for nine months and love it... apart from one thing.

The camera randomly crashes and can only be revived by ejecting then replacing the battery.

The problem is, I mostly shoot without using either the viewfinder or the LCD screen and don't realize when the camera is dead and that I am wasting my time's trying to shoot with a brick.

On this basis I'd now choose the G9.
