Ricoh Caplio R5 review

Bought just a refurb R5 (fw.162). Fine little cam! Yes, the zoomlever is a little bit fiddly, but the R5 is mostly well constructed, nice to handle and the IQ is quiet impressive for such a flexible lens in a small package. I love the great macro capability and the bw mode, which is not coupled with a scene mode as in newer R-models.
Im very glad that i found a as new R5, cause i would'nt buy one of the successors.

Problems:

So far, none.
