We are currently comparing four travel cameras, including the Ricoh GR. Has any reader bought the GRIII, perhaps as an upgrade to the GR or GRII, or even as a first toe-in-the-water purchase?
The basic convenience of the original APS-C GR continues, but the GRIII has undergone some subtle changes, including a smaller body, higher-density sensor, more compact lens, larger screen and simplified controls. Perhaps the most surprising change, though, is the inclusion of in-body stabilisation, something which is unusual on a such a compact camera sporting a wide 28mm lens.
Could this be the ideal high-performance pocket camera? How does it stack up against Leica’s Q and Q2. The target audience is similar, but the Ricoh owner has the last laugh when it comes to sticking the camera in a pocket.
If any readers have used the GRIII and can give us their impressions I would be grateful for the information. In particular, I am interested in any detailed impressions of the differences between the GR/GRII and the new camera.
