Pity product is discontinued

tkwshan, Amazon
18 August 2013
  • Summary: I have been a long time fan of the Ricoh GXR system. The modular system keeps dust off the sensor and it is compact and light. Image quality is superb when used with the 'A12' modules. As the system is discontinued, with no information whether there will be any replacement, and if so whether the new model will be backwards compatible, I purchased a second body as spare for that 'just in case' scenario. They are going for a song now!

  • Excerpt: Wonderful lens module.  Sharp, small enough.  Too bad Ricoh seems to be just letting folks use legacy lenses now, still, the 50mm is the best.

A True System Convert

Bian Hee Kau, Amazon

  • Summary: My background: I own 2 GXR camera units, the 28, 50, and M-Mount A12 lensors, as well as the P10 small lensor and the EVF. I also own the Canon 5DII and assorted L lenses for occasions where the big guns need to come out. I was one of the first to jump onto the mirrorless bandwagon, and got a M43 Panasonic G1, and later the GH2.

  • Summary: I love this camera. I've used many systems trying to find the perfect street photographer / versatile carry around camera, and this is it. As background, I've used: 1) Nikon - Film system including FA, FM2, FM3a, F3, F100, and Digital, including D90, D5000, D7000. All Nikon gear now sold, except the FM3a for collectors value. 2) Canon - Film system including EOS 3, EOS Elan II, and Digital - 5D (borrowed from friend). All canon gear sold.

The Ricoh GXR - an truly underrated but excellent prosumer camera system

Let it Be "Alan", Amazon
29 September 2011
  • Summary: As an avid photographer and gear collector for 2 decades, I have never a fan of Ricoh cameras until I own my very first Ricoh camera - the Ricoh GXR P10 kit three months ago. Outside of Japan, Ricoh has long been an underrated camera manufacturer as its camera department had been concentrating its manufacturing resouces on P&S or point and shoot rangefinder film and digital cameras.

Awesome!

NJC, Amazon

  • Summary: This is my first ever review of a product, from any website. I absolutely love this camera. I spent quite a bit of time researching. Top reasons I purchased (pros): Pros 1) Liked the idea of the modular sensor/lens. 2) Upcoming module that would handle a Leica M lens. 3) All reviews pointed at extra solid construction - I have to agree - its a rock. (but not too heavy) 4) I have bigger hands, and it fits perfectly.

  • Excerpt: Top of the Ricoh line, a camera not suited for someone that just wants to snap a picture, suited for someone that wants to learn and grow with their camera. Interchangeable modules (lenses) are interesting and the A12 is wonderful for it's great IQ. The body offers the great Ricoh UI in a smallish package. Not belt-wearable but in a small bag it is light with both modules and another small digicam, just a perfect camera for my use.

  • Excerpt: This GXR with S10 module is what the GX300 would have been, it is a great camera, feels perfect in your hands, a bit bigger than the GX line and well worth the added bulk with the added features and option to change lens modules. I never leave home without it.

An excellent camera

ImportFood, Amazon
24 March 2010
  • Summary: I'm not a professional photographer but I use a digital camera for work. There are very sophisticated reviews of this camera on professional camera review websites, but here is a review from a basic user. Ricoh cameras are hard to find, as most retailers offer Canon, Nikon, Sony, etc. I became a Ricoh fan in the late 1980s, using a very inexpensive point/shoot camera. The picture quality was great, and I used that camera for years.
