Many of us at Elephant Gun agree: The Ricoh GR is the BEST STREET SHOOTER EVER MADE. Its immaculate, minimalist design encourages constant use and its fixed-length, remarkable bright, ultra-wide f2.8 lens is crisper than optics that zoom and with its Snap Focus mode, is better suited for quickly snapping a bustling street scene. Plus: built-in ND filter, two crop modes (35mm and 47mm equivalent), seemingly endless auto focusing and exposure combinations.
But how do you make the best even better? Impossible, right? Not at all. In fact, a little birdie informs us there's an all new GR due in 2015 replete with:
- Upgraded sensor (APS-C)
- Redesigned lens with even better focusing
- Touch screen
- New grip design
