Prime lens fans are in for a treat with the Ricoh GR, the smallest APS-C camera on the market! Pairing a bright, wide 28mm-equivalent f/2.8 lens and a sensor closely-related to that used in popular DSLRs such as the Pentax K-5 II and Nikon D7000, the Ricoh GR is also one of the most customizable cameras we've seen in a very long time. It offers a strong rival to the Nikon Coolpix A, and honestly it's difficult to choose a victor between the pair. With a more affordable pricetag and a lighter body, though, Ricoh has given photographers two very convincing reasons to opt for the underdog!Pros
The most compact APS-C camera on the market; Bright, sharp 28mm f/2.8 prime lens with almost no distortion; Excellent image quality; Extremely customizable; Fast autofocus; Strong built-in flash plus hot shoe.Cons
Fixed prime lens is not for everybody; Crowded and small controls; Burst performance is limited; Muted colors and cool white balance; Has issues with moire and false color.Price and availability
The Ricoh GR digital camera shipped in the US market from mid-May 2013. List pricing is set at US$800 or thereabouts, only US$200 more than that of the GR Digital IV, and well below the list price of any other APS-C compact on the market.Imaging Resource rating
