Hi all. I am a very happy Ricoh GR owner and just joined the forums.

In addition to the GR, I currently shoot with an OMD E-M5 and occasionally put a roll of film through my F3.
You can see some of my photos on my blog.

Here are two recent OOC jpegs that convinced me the GR is flexible enough that I could leave my OMD at home over the holidays and just bring the Ricoh along with a couple flashes to see what I could learn to do with it while traveling,

Every day I shoot with it, I find new functionality that was clearly designed and implemented by and for serious photographers. The leaf shutter, AWB, and in camera raw tools are an awesome combination. Putting its well thought out controls, excellent lens and sensor in such a small package is an amazing achievement.

It's a brilliant camera, and i hope there are many more GR's to come from Ricoh/Pentax. I plan to own all of them from now on.

Welcome to the forum, I'm not quite sure what the chap doing in the first image, but it looks a little suspect from this angle.
