Summary: Ricoh has made a name for itself for high quality cameras with good optics. This Ricoh model takes a revolutionary look at how point-and-shoot cameras can keep some of the major benefits of a DSLR, while still remaining compact and light enough to lug around.
Summary: The Ricoh A12 50mm Macro "lensor" with the Ricoh GXR body create a compact camera with outstanding image quality. Images are rich in color, right on target with white-balance and provide excellent tonality and sharpness.
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 Nikon D90, Canon 5D, Sony A850, Olympus 43, Panasonic GF-1, and this is my favorite camera yet.
Summary: I've owned many macro lenses on DSLRs, and was excited to get this interchangeable lens/sensor combo for my GXR. I liked the novelty of the GXR, and purchased that with the 24-72mm lens/sensor option. The build on this unit is excellent.
