Have you tried the new Fuji X70 or Ricoh GRII? Then maybe you can help me!

Open Talk Forum: Digital Photography Review - forums.dpreview.com
I currently have a Sony RX100M3 as my small take anywhere/ travel camera.

I'm in the market for a new travel camera, not because the Sony isn't cutting it, just because I like new things/ simply want to try a new camera.

I had my eye on the Ricoh GRII (annoyingly they have basically no distribution around my local area so I have to order one in, not a big deal, but just means I can't go to the store and hold one)

Then I started reading about the Fuji X70 and I got beyond confused, it's literally a toss up for which camera people think is better.

My notes:

- I like that the Ricoh has a integrated lens cap, rather than having to remove and replace one like the Fuji.

- It seems unanimous that the Fuji has better auto-focus? I like that.

- I like that the Fuji has a high FPS

- I like that the Ricoh is sharper

- From videos it seems that the Fuji makes a lot of ticking and noises when focusing or the aperture blades adjusting for the metering. Can anyone confirm?

- I read Ricoh sucks for color

- I like Fuji's film presets (though it's only in JPEG and I usually shoot RAW and edit, I guess I can learn to adjust)

So in short, I'll read one article and be like "OH the Ricoh is surly the way to go", then another and think "what was I thinking, it's all Fuji X70 all the way" and it goes, back and fourth.

Can any of you with experience with both or either of the cameras help me put a nail in this Fuji X70 vs Ricoh GRII dilemma!? Or should I just get the RX100M4.
