Summary: This is the best point and shoot camera ever made for street photography. It has very little shutter lag time, and, due to it's p&s design, draws no attention to it's self, My two other cameras; a nikon F3, and a leica M4 sometimes get in the way, and draw attention to themselves.
One of the best cams I owned, large or small. Period.

Summary: I've nothing to add to the reviews here on amazon OTHER than this story: I purchased the GRDIII several months before leaving for 2 years of travels around the world (in which I also packed a Pentax K7 with a 50mm manual lens, but I used that very very infrequently simply due to weight, size and...
Summary: This is not a point and shoot camera. To use this camera you need a cooperative subject, good lighting and a tripod. There is no zoom feature and it is not capable of attaching any zoom lenses. The few lenses that are offered are for visual effects only, wall eye and filter type.
Summary: The Ricoh GRD III (like the GRD I) that I owned before is a superb little camera, capable of taking excellent images in the hands of an experienced photographer. It doesn't have face-detection, scene modes, HD video, 12x zoom, etc.

Summary: Ill keep this short. There are a lot of things this camera doesnt have and if you are like me these things arent always important in a camera like movies, zoom lenses, automatic settings for photographing a flower.
Summary: A lot has been said about this camera so I'll just go into the pieces that I found very interesting about it as a result. The number one reason this camera is worth its cost I'd say is the quality and size of the photos all things considered.
Summary: the pictures are incredible. High ISO is up there with the best of the small sensor cameras though limited to ISO 1600 max. Great LCD on the back, clear and crisp. Very good AF speed, and accurate as well. Button placements are near perfect. Lens is fast at 1.9 and has superb optical quality.
Summary: I had my hands on the new GRD3 today and it feels a little, only a little different. it is more solid and sturdy in feel somehow though only a tiny bit larger. I asked for the NR off function first of all and we played with that. Then there is the ISO which has returned to 64. Great.
Summary: ok so its ~$100 cheaper than several APS-C or micro four-third sensor equipped competitors that have exchangeable lenses. I would have happily paid $100 more to have an APS-C camera with an excellent fixed lens from Ricoh, where a small sensor doesn't diminish the usefulness of the expense of its...
