Engadget Summary

The Ricoh GR won't be for everyone, but those that like what it can offer will not be disappointed. When snapping photos, critics were very impressed with the GR's capabilities, with Digital Photography Review saying it has "excellent image quality," and TechRadar says the images are "well exposed, have natural colours and plenty of detail." In handling the GR, Gizmodo says it has "a very comfortable grip and a wonderfully lightweight magnesium alloy body." But the GR doesn't just take good pictures -- it's also really fast. Photography Blog feels the GR "excels in the speed department, with snappy autofocusing, fast power-on, shutter-lag and shot-to-shot times." Since the GR has a fixed lens it's not going to work for all photographers, but if you can live with its limitations in the zoom department then you'll be rewarded with excellent photos.
