Excerpt: The GXR became something quite unique when they released the mount module. Apart from Leica there was and has been no other camera specifically designed for LM mount lenses. At the time Ricoh engineers were very proud of the specially designed focal plane shutter.
APS-C size sensor that means sensor same size as Nikon D7000, and images are very sharp and true colours.

Summary: what is a good camera? is this a good camera? is this the best? who is it for?.I think all these questions are very hard to answer and most people want to know answers to these questions rather than graphs and numbers.
Summary: I'm not an expert on cameras and after two years of ownership I'm still finding new ways to improve my photo shots, due to the vast array of settings available to the user. I have had some technical issues with the body but Ricoh have not failed so far, to give excellent service.
Pros: Robust compact size and ease of operation + really good photos.
Best User Interface ever. Great camera, buy it now.

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.
Summary: For those considering Leica lens options on non-Leica cameras, I would recommend this little unit as a viable option...I am using this on Ricoh's base camera and it works just great... I like the results I am getting, and my images are simply superb...
