I know there are various reviews and comments on the current GR, but I bought one before a big trip to Iceland and have been bowled over by its performance in so many areas. I have written three short articles on it starting with this one (Ricoh GR: Better than a DSLR or Leica M?).
Lens performance easily surpassed my high expectations (set by previous reviews read) and the ergonomics and interface are, IMHO, superb. This is my first delving into Ricoh/Pentax after my ancient Pentax MZ-5 (first proper camera) and, if I am honest, I would FAR prefer to take this on a street shooting trip than a Leica M + 28mm. To that end I have done some basic comparisons to the Monochrom + 28mm Elmarit-M asph and the GR surprised me some more.
What a camera.
