  • Summary: The Ricoh GXR/A12 50mm F2.5 Macro offers excellent, DSLR-like image and build quality in a fairly compact package. However, the camera is slightly let down by its sometimes slow and/or unreliable contrast detect AF.

  • Cons: Contrast detect AF slow, hunting and occasionally unreliable in anything but good light, No image stabilization, Battery life not great, Comparatively low-spec video mode (720p but no manual controls, no focus, no external mic), Fastest shutter speeds not available at largest apertures, Some minor glitches in the user interface (see operations and handling summary on live view page), Tripod mount not in the center of the lens, Price

Ricoh GXR

PC Magazine
1 September 2010
  • Conclusion: The Ricoh GXR offers the unique ability not only to swap lenses, but also image sensors. It has a wealth of physical controls, making it an exciting camera for enthusiasts, but its benefits are offset by slow autofocus and minimal video functionality.
  • Pros: Sharp photos. Intuitive control layout. Good high ISO performance. Sharp rear LCD. Optional EVF available. Good lens module selection.
  • Cons: Slow autofocus and startup. Some lens modules are pricey. Very limited video support.

Ricoh GXR Mount A12 review

Amateur Photographer
3 April 2014
  • Summary: It's fair to say that Ricoh has had mixed fortunes in the digital market, with success and absolute image quality varying across the product range. In the GXR A12 lens units, the company seems to have got things right. The GXR system is still awkward to understand, but with the introduction of the Mount A12 for M and L lenses the appeal should be much clearer.
