So it's a NEX 6, with all the cool features removed?

Nope. Its a Ricoh GR with a completely different set of cool features. If you like the cool features on the Nex, that's great. I much prefer the cool features on the GR. And I'd rather have one GOOD lens than.... oh, never mind...

Nice we both have options to enjoy.


Hey Ray!  Funny that we're crossing paths here on the Ricoh forum.  When I saw the GR press release, I thought of you!  You've mentioned for a long time that the GRD is a camera you really like in terms of ergonomics.  I've noted that.  I bet this is a camera that ends up in your bag.  Really exciting times for small cameras the past year or two.

Hi Stan,

I'll definitely be buying either this Ricoh or the Nikon Coolpix A. I've had a loaner of the Nikon for several weeks that's just gone back but I've been told I can get another one when the Ricoh loaner shows up so I can shoot them back to back for a while. I liked the Nikon a LOT (http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/51254071) but I've got a lot of history with Ricoh's interface and if I like the GR as much, I'll be happy to save a few hundred bucks. I'll shoot you a PM - I haven't been on the m43 forum almost at all recently, so I'll catch up.
