Perfect Sensor & Lens combo

  • 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. I was quite surprised at the good quality of the JPG images, something that I found quite often disappointing in other cameras. If I want to tweak the ultimate out of an image however, I open and edit the DNG raw file with Photoshop's Camera Raw.

fantastic lens and sensor

  • 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. I am an advanced amateur photographer who has exhibited at local galleries. Why you should buy the the GXR - - 100% customizable interface. there is absolutely no need to dive into the menus.

Good quality, but pricey and impossible to clean

  • 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. Ricoh did a great job of making this a closed system so no dust can get on the sensor.

  • Summary: Well built, but pricey. You get what you pay for. This lens takes great photos. It has a matched sensor on it that is second to none.
