Not the greatest quality of manufacture...

Very sharp, easy to carry round in a hip pouch on your belt. Bits fall off: I had to make a plastic shim for the OVF because the fitting was too loose, and lost the lens finish ring (a notorious problem it seems) whilst on holiday. These normally cost £30 new but found online for £18, a ridiculous cost given its Ricoh's poor engineering we're paying for. The new ring secured by cutting a short length of wire tie and dropping it into the lens ring lug on the camera for the lens ring to turn onto thus giving a tight fit.

Camera is overpriced at £799, I paid £630 s/hand, OVFs now appearing s/hand under £90...

if you put it in a case beware that lens ring falling off as you take it out!
