Ricoh XR-2,

I own a XR-2, it is not the XR-2s. Can anyone tell me the difference between these two models? I also have a old KR-10 model. What are the quality differences between a KR and XR etc. Which is more desirable?
Thanks ahead of time,

Recently I accessed a site with a good chronology of all the Ricoh camera models. I forgot to book mark it and now can't find it for eagle's query.
It was like a spreadsheet with date and summary of features of each model etc.
Anybody know?

Other brands with K-mount

Here Butkus has listed ALL brands of K mount bodies in time order, along with main features.
Hope it helps your query.

The XR-2s supports the optional power-winder. Other than that, I believe they are the same. As for XR vs. KR, the XR models usually have the more advanced features.

Oh, and for those who don't own the XR-2, here is a facsimile of a review and tear-down evaluation from when the camera was new:

Steve,
I believe you are correct regarding the only difference being the power winder. Sure has been a great camera.
