Ricoh GR: Camera of the Year

Ricoh GR

B&H Photo has the Ricoh GR in stock for about $659.

The Ricoh GR delivers a fabulous combination of lens sharpness and bokeh, plus ergonomics and features that all come together in a synergistic whole. See the full review of the Ricoh GR.

In the context of the boilerplate non-design of its “peers” (peers: poor ergonomics, kitchen-sink menus, crAppware, non-locking dials, arbitrary behaviors and limitations, non-grip, autofocus creep and oddball sensor artifacts, ad nauseum), the Ricoh GR stands out as a stunning achievement in bringing so many things together so well.

As of August, I designate the Ricoh GR the camera of the year. Grab one.

Thank you so much for your coverage of the Ricoh GR. I was able to acquire this wonderful camera and had the opportunity to take the GR and my Nikon D800 (+Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM) on a recent trip to Oregon.

I have to say, this is truly a camera you just want to take everywhere. Engaging controls, easy to use, stunning results and as you note, a high keeper rate. I shot both my D800 and the GR in many of the same locales and short of resolving power, I simply have no complaints. In fact, the wider angle lens actually allowed me to capture landscape shots not possible with my D800 + 35mm.

That aside, I also acquired the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM based on your review and I was equally impressed.

Thanks again. Keep up the good work.
