FOR SALE: Ricoh GRDiii + GW-2 + GH-2 + extras GR Digital iii

Am selling my lightly used Ricoh GRD iii - aka Ricoh Digital iii - aka Ricoh GRD3 - plus a handful of seriously cool accessories. This is the 10mp ultra-small and ultra-pocketable Ricoh, with a fast f/1.9 lens which is the focal length equivalent of a classic 28mm lens. It's a camera which has been beloved and used by generations of street photographers, and not merely because of its built-in 'snap focus' mode. It also has a built-in flash and a rather cool close-up or Macro focusing mode.

I'm also including what I believe are the best accessories for GRD series - namely the wide-conversion lens - aka GW-2 - which transforms a 28mm fov into an ultra-wide 21mm fov. The GW-2 requires an adapter - the GH-2 - which I'm also including. And I'm including the nifty Ricoh factory lens hood, which fits onto the GH-2. (A minor note - to put the GH-2 on, one must remove the tiny 'lens ring' that fits around the front of the lens; and they are easy to misplace or lose. Who knows why Ricoh designed it this way? Not me.)

The camera also two other vital accessories - a protector for the rear LCD screen, made by ACMAXX and which I installed when I first bought the camera -- and a 3rd-party plug-in battery charger (something Ricoh doesn't include with any of the GRD or GR series).

I don't have either the original box or the original manual though the manual is available in PDF form nearly everywhere. I'm not including a case either. The GRDiii is so tiny it fits easily in almost any pocket; there are excellent cases and pouches available, depending on if you just want to carry the camera alone, or the camera with the added GH2 + GW2, which makes it a little chunkier.

As it's a small-sensor wonder - "only" 10mp - it doesn't equal the newer APS-C GR's in terms of resolving power - but it makes up for that in terms of fun and pocketability. The snap-focus feature makes it a long-term favorite for street photography, and the small-sensor means it has excellent Macro performance. I've used it for street photography, for portraits, for macro shots and for landscapes - it's amazingly versatile.

I'm the 2nd owner and the camera is in very, very good shape. I'm selling it because I have a few too many cameras and it isn't getting used much - and a camera this nice deserves to be used more.

Reasonable shipping costs to be shared by Buyer and Seller. Price-wise, I'm pricing it at slightly under what the whole thing cost me - in the hopes of making it affordable.
