Summary: 3 stars for the experience, 5 stars for the photo quality when it worked. I've returned it because something was seriously wrong with the shutter in bright light...would completely malfunction. Indoors, worked well and photo quality was superb due to the lack of AA filter (look it up if you don't know what it is).
Summary: Don't get me wrong, this is a fine lens module for vacations and other instances when you need a zoom. It is equal to, or better, than many of the compact cameras in this class. However, once I purchased the A12 50mm f/2.5 Macro GR Lens for the Ricoh GXR, I haven't used this P lens module at all. The A12 is superb, it will finally allow you to show off your photos with pride.
Summary: I am returning the second Ricoh P10 that I have purchased, it seems for the first week or so, It works well, then it starts to freeze, you can't turn it off or turn it on. I have to remove the battery when this happens to reset the camera. This problem continued to get worse,and happen more often, so I am returning it. As far as the quality of pictures, I found it to be very responsive and very clear pictures.. especially in low light.
