2>3

Good business these days!

Version 3 of the APS-C sensor sized, very pocketable, in high regard with street shooters Ricoh GR camera came out recently and I read at Sean Reid’s website that he actually prefers the penultimate version. For various reasons: he finds the GR II’s user interface better and the lens in the GR II tests better.

This I liked to read as I have this camera, even brought it with me on holiday at the Baltic Sea. So, today I used it exclusively and in preference of the other, more prestigious gear I brought.

When I use the Ricoh GR II, I like to shoot loose and impulsively and I always see in black and white. In all honesty, I think the GR III would serve just as well for that kind of work.

The 0-series replica is a simple camera. It doesn’t even have a rangefinder. Mine now does.
