Ricoh GR IIIx vs Fujifilm X100V: how the X100VI changes the calculus: Digital Photography Review

Editor’s note: This story was originally published in 2021. With the 2024 release of the Fujifilm X100VI, we have updated the story to include the new camera.

With the arrival of the X100VI, there is a new camera gunning for the top spot for large-sensor fixed-lens cameras sold at anything approaching a mainstream price.
