Review from Steve Huff

"The Ricoh GR is probably the best pocket cam released to date, from anyone...."

I'd really love to have this, but it's not in the cards. The price is fantastic. A DA21mm alone costs 540, new. The rest of the camera is almost free. This might be the best price to value on the market, at non-closeout prices.

I went with a Fuji X100s after much research. I did get to try out the GR this past weekend and it was extremely well built and very comfortable to hold. Shirt pocketable as well. My only reservation is a lens that goes in and out of the body on startup and shutdown. A bit of sand or dirt and the that mechanism could fail....and I've had that happen more than once.

I hope to eventually get this camera but it won't happen anytime soon. Maybe next year.

Really digging this camera, but can't justify it right now. I love using my DSLR but sometimes the simple one lens in a small package is a big draw.

Yeah, he's often that way though, so it's sometimes difficult to tell if he likes it or he loves it.

Well, the tone is a bit different for the Leica X Vario or the Lunar
