Hi

I have no experience with street photo, but why is Ricoh GR favorite?. I mean the Sony RX100 has sharp lenses, amazing af, EVF and not least zoom

Explain for me plz

I think you are asking why GR seems to be considered more important ?

Most of it has to do with a cult for the camera that has turned more mainstream. Also because of the cameras old history with Daido Moriyama who hasn't used a Ricoh camera in tens years. He tested latest GR and Ricoh used it as promotion but Daido went back to his Nikon zoom cameras. So I believe the term for this is "hype".

LOL...that's being kind.

I read lot of forums here since joining and there is arguing in almost all of them but there is a strange arrogance on the Ricoh forum. I live in the land of cameras but photographers far out number gear heads. Also the gear heads here do not get offended. I started using ignore feature for some of them.

It's an insecure group to be sure. And very little pics are posted...like they all sit in a basement somewhere with their cameras.
