Riyad Emeran has posted a review of the Ricoh GR at TrustedReviews. Ricoh GR Digital is a point-and-shoot digital camera with 8.1 Megapixel CCD, a fixed F2.4 focal length for the newly-developed GR 28mm wideangle lens and 2.5″ LCD screen.
“Shooting with just the standard lens the image quality is simply phenomenal, easily among the very best I’ve seen from any non-SLR camera. The GR lens lives up to its boasts and produces pin-sharp high-contrast detail right into the corners of the frame without even a hint of barrel distortion. Focusing is quick and accurate under nearly all lighting conditions thanks to the AF illuminator, and exposure is consistently spot on…Ricoh has produced something unique, a compact camera that will satisfy even the most demanding enthusiast. Its combination of compact portability, robust build quality, superb handling, creative control and fantastic picture quality should make it a firm favourite among keen photographers, especially the travel photographers who loved the original GR film camera. An expensive camera, especially for the whole kit, but well worth the money.
