Ricoh GR Preview extended with further details and more comparisons

The all important RAWs in the Studio Comparison, there seems to be little difference in terms of sharpness between the GRD and Coolpix A. Acutance looks virtually identical, except in the corners and borders which unlike at f2.8, the Nikon is sharper.

High ISO are a different story, as by ISO 800 the Nikon is showing significantly less Chroma noise.

Still, because of the price, and the great GRD ergonomics, I’ll be buying a GRD. If I were a rich man, I’d buy the Coolpix A fully loaded with hood and VF.
