DxOMark’s conclusion:

With the introduction of the original Ricoh GR, the company earned plaudits for its combination of smart design, high-quality output, and user-friendly ergonomics. Although there have been numerous small refinements, the Ricoh GR II has drawn ire and disappointment from the photographic community in general as an underwhelming update. Perhaps it’s a measure of the high expectations of the user base, because when viewed alone, the Ricoh GR II is every bit as capable as the original and there have been some refinements in sensor performance. Although as with some of the other upgrades, the gains are modest, with an attractive price of just $559, the Ricoh GR II is a highly desirable model.

    Not really better than a almost 6 year old D7000, compare here:

    The GR II does hold 0.1bits more into ColorDepth, as an DSLR, and is better into especially the ISO LowLight Score and Dynamic Range Department. 😉

      its the same sensor. what do you expect? it still is a very good sensor too. the gr III will have a new sensor surely.

      do you need constant growth in specs?
      Every generation has to trump the predecessor?

      High ISO is now the first benchmark that almost everybody seems to fall back when judging a DSC nowadays. Some of us don’t care for high ISO and there is a reason for that – sanity.

      I do understand the wish for forensically clean images at ISO6400 but I don’t share the wish. Let there be grain, I don’t mind…
