Ricoh GR Digital II review
Ever since I purchased this camera in January 08, it has been my primary "carry everywhere" camera; excellent for snapshots & it even stands up to 'bigger cameras' in terms of image quality.
When I first came across the GRD I had my doubts regarding the fixed lens, but when I tried a friend's GRD II, I was impressed with its speed & ease of use & I went & purchased one the next day.
It is my favorite camera at the moment.
My GRD II is fairly new, but at small apertures, there is spec of dust / hair visible; must be some dust in the lens assembly or sensor, see here
I noticed this a couple of days after I bought the camera, but it was nothing that I could not touch up if ever I shot at f.9 or above.
After less than 3 months of use, the rubber grip started to fall apart, see pics here:
(PS - I don't know why the links don't appear above, but search flickr for "My Ricoh GR Digital II is falling apart" to see the pics )
