Here we are comparing two cameras with different body types: Canon 400D, which was introduced in October 2006 is a Entry-Level DSLR camera with a 10.0MP APS-C sensor whereas Ricoh GXR P10 28-300mm F3.5-5.6 VC, which was introduced in August 2010 is a Advanced Mirrorless camera with a 10.0MP 1/2.3-inch sensor. As you can see, 400D is 4 years older than GXR P10 28-300mm F3.5-5.6 VC. Let's see if this age difference between two cameras makes a big difference.
Despite some fundamental differences of these two body types, Mirrorless cameras are becoming serious alternatives to DSLR cameras thanks to their size/weight advantages and recent improvements in their focus speeds , which makes this comparison even more interesting.
