Several readers informed me that the new Ricoh GR is already shipping in the US. At some point the camera was available in stock at Amazon, mainly from third party resellers. DxOMark published their latest test results and the GR scored slightly below the Nikon Coolpix A (see review):
Some additional Ricoh GR coverage from around the Web:
- A quick image comparison between the Ricoh GR and Fuji X100s cameras.
- Few more sample images.
- What's inside the box.
- Quick GR hands-on.
- Review @ephotozine:
"The Ricoh GR (V) is an impressive upgrade to the previous GR Digital model, with a 16 megapixel APS-C sensor, the Ricoh GR suddently becomes much more attractive, with an extremely sharp 28mm equivalent lens, the camera delivers excellent image quality. It's also available for noticeably less than other APS-C sensor compact cameras, and would make a great pocket camera where image quality rather than zoom is of the highest importance."
