Recently I’ve decided in getting an advanced point & shoot. Something that shoots RAW, fast/sharp lens, and fits in my pocket. Narrowed it down to these two. Now, the Ricoh has always been a fav of mine, just pricey. The LX5 is undoubtedly a fantastic camera in it’s own right and more $ friendly. All things considered the LX5 does offer more features for $$$, but the GRD IV just released a new focusing system that’s suppose to make it super quick. MMmmm
