Greetings from Gwynedd, Wales

Greetings all!

I have used Ricoh GRD cameras in the past, but have been unhappy with the small, noisy sensors, otherwise wonderful cameras. The GR II is different: an excellent optic and great sensor in a still tiny package. It is very flexible; however it will take time to master the menu system.

Getting older and wanting lighter and more compact equipment, I sold a Leica Q and bought the GR. The IQ is not as great as the Q's, but, nevertheless, A3 prints are possible.
