newbie - GR III vs Fuji X70

Hi-
I am new to the forum. I have had Ricoh GR Digital, even 35mm cameras, thinking of getting GR III. Right now I have no camera, Covid made me sell off my stuff, now getting anxious to get out there again. I have a question: Is the GR III worth the price difference for the Sensor Cleaner, extra MP and Snap Shooting over the Fuji X70? I have looked into buying the Fuji also.
Thanks for any input.

Welcome!

To answer your question, check out this comparison of the older GR ii and the X70.

The MP is not really a big deal in my opinion. A bigger deal would be that the GR iii is stabilized.

Do you always shoot on a tripod, W?

If not, it's got to be the GR III. It has image stabilisation.

I dunno the Fuji.
What I know is the GR (I) is really a tool made for photographers. Even more so than my Pentax DSLRs.
It is the only camera I know with so small number of controls but with so much customization. Very impressive.

I really love mine, tough a 35mm instead of a 28mm would be preferred.

It is a very nice tool you can tailor to your likes completely.

anyone know of dust issues on sensor on the GR III? I have read some reviews that there can be dust issues, even with the sensor clean on....
