Summary: I had this camera for a few years, then left it in a rental car. I was totally bummed. I looked and looked until I found this one. Like new! This camera takes beautiful shots once you learn how to use it. Aperture and shutter priority work well. It's like having an SLR in a point and shoot.
This camera is a rugged piece of art at a value price.

Summary: I purchased this camera used on ebay for $200.00 it included the VF1 viewfinder, extetion tube,lens shade, Caplio strapand a after market lcd flip up sun screen wich I highly recomend. just under a month ago.
Summary: I like Ricoh GX100 because of its RAW format capabilities, the manual controls, the build in quality and the 10M sensors versus 12M in the GX200. The camera is a bit slow on RAW writing but I can live with it.
Excerpt: Great camera..yes you do need to take some time to learn it, but that is when the rewards begin. Shooting RAW is a bit slow but will always give you things you would have lost in jpg, but the 100 is the best ricoh for jpegs, simply wonderful in all ways.
Excerpt: I bought the GX100 to replace a heavily used GX which I loved. I haven't been disappointed with it. This is the camera I pocket when I don't want to take my SLR or even if I just don't want to carry the equivalent SLR lenses as it is smaller than most SLR lenses short of pancakes.
Excerpt: Lovely camera with excellent manual controls and user interface. 24mm eqv lens very useful, and rather unique in its macro capabilities - a really cool combination. Small enough to fit in a medium sized pocket, large enough to handle comfortably. The small grip is surprisingly good to grip.
Excerpt: I bought this camera for its wide-angle lens; it was the only non-DSLR on the market that went to 24mm at the time. For outdoor shots I'm very pleased with it. The ergonomics of the camera are excellent, very well thought-out. I enjoy using this camera.
