and its great. I recall when Ricoh bring out the GR-1 back them ( its the film compact ) the market was really really excited. now we can have a quality lens in a quality compat body that we can do our photo seriously. Not even a Leica M with a comparable 28mm lens can be as compact, lightweight and pocketable. At the time it really replace the 28mm lens that I would carry along with my SLR ( Contax for the matter ).

Now with Digital, the GR-D is surely pocketbale, but the sensor is really the limiting factor. If one use a quality mirrorless or DSLR as their system and wanting to port along a pocketable that can do the same; there really is no alternative. Now rioch had plug that gap.

I am eagerly looking forward to this cam for sure.
