... In about 2 years I expect this GR to have a 24MP APS sensor at the same price, but with few other changes other than a substantially better video mode and the distinct possibility the nameplate will say Pentax. Ricoh is a copier company where I live. Another feature we may see is some form of hybrid AF. The Achilles Heel of these snap shooters is their low light AF and active tracking. I suspect Sony is working on an APS RX10 with this and Nikon is already retooling the A. We'll see all that stuff at Photokona 2014. Big sensor cams like the GR are going to be a growth niche and brand maker for awhile. Not huge revenues but a steady, up-market sell. Very glad to see Pentax/Ricoh making an early and big splash here, toasting Nikon in the process. IMO
My only true gripe about the GR (and I do mean *only*) is that they scrapped the hybird phase & contrast AF that is in all the previous models and it truly shows. My GRIII locks on tight MUCH quicker than the GR5 in lowlight. I'm sure there were technical reasons for dropping this but I truly wish it could have been squeezed in... If only that I'll be looking closely at the next iteration of this little guy, when otherwise I probably would not have.

Some excellent photos in this thread. Frank - hope you don't mind me adding a couple of photos to your thread.

Got my Ricoh GR a few weeks ago, and am having a lot of fun shooting with it. A couple of images I've made with the GR so far:

4800x3200 pixels and an 8.5MP image directly attached... ouch!!
No wonder this page loaded so slowly for me.

Probably best to just post something smaller from flickr (eg 1024px on the long side).

Also: big geometric distortion going on the right. Those buildings shouldn't slope that way.

Nice review and nice photos!

I'm going to have to stay strong to keep talking myself out of the GR. Although if that 21 mm unit is good it could be fill a nice gap in my lens lineup.

Crap, I'm doomed!

I received my GR over the weekend and had a chance to use it today. I am amazed at the image quality with this camera. The sharpness and clarity of the images are excellent. The ergonomics of the camera is fantastic and it is super easy to use one handed. I couldn't be happier with this purchase.

Does anyone with more experience with this camera have any tips or tricks they'd like to share?

It's easy to gush over newly acquired gear, but after just a couple of weeks with the GR, I can't help but think I've found 'the one' - no other camera has ticked almost all the right boxes for me - size, snap focus, quality, FL etc..

The GR in the streets of Manila:











All images processed from DNG.

I think snap focus is just pure genius. Barring an actual distance scale on the lens barrel, for my purposes, I find that snap focus works really well. Though I hear that the new Leica X-Vario has a pretty nifty design that sounds like it's really useful for those like me who like shooting pre-focused, yet occasionally need AF. But I much prefer snap focus vs the on-screen DOF scale and fly-by-wire set-up of the X100s, for example.

I also find shooting with just the LCD pretty liberating. I find that my shooting is a lot more 'fluid'; if that makes any sense. Though I did still get a finder for the GR (The Panasonic VF1 - designed for the 24mm EFOV of the LX series, but I think the brightlines fit the GR's 28mm EFOV perfectly; I used to have the Voigtlander 21/25mm (I lost it) for my GRDIV, and it had brightlines for 21mm and notches for 25mm, and I much prefer the Panasonic, though of course it won't be too useful with the GW-3 adapter). But I've mostly preferred shooting using just the LCD so far.

Cheers.
