Don't buy this unless you like to shoot with 28mm, RAW, B+W, high ISO. This lookslike a typical P&S camere, but it is NOT. This is my backup for Leica M8, and useful for only 28mm. But if the above list is what you like, then there's simply no better alternatives. Seyhun Problems: If you know what you are buying, then there are no problems.

The look and feel of this camera is fantastic. The buttons are well designed and highly programmable making the camera a real joy to use. After programming a few of the buttons I felt like the camera was really mine. I bought the camera for the feature set. I don't understand why but there seems to be no other non-dslr camera that gives you full control over exposure settings. I was also excited about the time lapse feature. The flash can only be used if it is popped up which is a great way ...

If you have the GRD and want faster RAW write times, then this is the camera for you....write times for a RAW + jpg 640 with an Extreme III, 2GB card are around 2 seconds as best I can tell. Sure beats the 11-13+ secs of the GRD. The lens is outstanding, and the build is first rate. No barrell distortion, nor CA. RAW files are excellent quality and it's nice to have the ability to adjust WB and tonality after the fact with minimal degredation. Update on 2/20/2008: Sold my GRD II, and then my ...

Don't buy this if you want a camera for all occassions. This camera has limited scope, but in that scope it excels brilliantly. Gorgeous RAW, cracking lense, great battery life, optional optical viewfinder is a delight, noise translates wonderfully into black & white. Sample shots: http://flickr.com/photos/ijonas/tags/grd2/ Problems: Expensive. But worth it.

Received mine two days ago and so far it seems to be just the little camera I've always wanted. The GR Digital II is not an M4, it is a standout and a reminder, the more things change the more they stay the same, quality gear and the craft of photography. - 4.0 Ease of use is hidden in the details.... Should improve as the user learns and improves. Excellent p&s but GRII deserves more demanding work. - 4.5 Value for money would be higher but my $s are shrinking. Problems: No full review by ...

I received my new GRD2 yesterday and the first moments were a very positive. Not a previous Ricoh owner but have followed its development news and waited for this release. The Raw write speed seems @ 2-2.5secs on an extreme 4gig card. This is a camera meant to be used by a person with atleast an average understanding of photographic concepts. It is feature rich and if you were to use it as a P&S, the options really force you to reconsider a second frame with different settings...and hence an ...
