chadley_chad: Why? It’s clear a screen is required hence the phone integration ... so why on earth would you not put one in. It’s beyond me; it’s like making a watch with no hands; you have to check your phone. Destined to fail!

Without the screen, the body will be thinner. Like others said, film camera users can live out checking photos all the time, it is just habit.
The camera is probably not designed for mass market but a small niche market, if it is ever produced.

MILC man: ""Canon has been very clear that they think lens stabilization is superior."

so why did they make a couple of expensive eos-r lenses that don't have lens stabilization.

That might have made these even bigger?

People who try to make some jokes below should be ashamed, it is not a laughing matter.

mrpuggy: Has anyone shot regularly with a fast manual focus lens like the F1.2 on the Sony a7 iii? Is it a reasonable experience?

I suggest you to have a look adapted lens forum on DPR, a lot of seasoned photographers who use manual lenses.

Both 35mm f2 and 21mm f3.5 in M mount should work really nicely on a APC-S mirrorless cameras as a compact set-up.

In reply to:

mdt1: You all know ricoh has been iterating the GR for a long time. I have to assume they made these 'big' changes, deletions, with some thought behind it all. I'm gonna give 'em the benefit of doubt and withhold judgement until I can use one with this new user interface. I mean a lot is still a mystery at this point. Wonder if their touch sensitive lcd will be well implemented. I like it on my olympus m1, but do not miss that kind of interface with the GR.

I am sorry to not be able to just copy over my user interface completely from the GR2. There is an immediacy and familiarity that is being taken away.

I do wonder, did anyone complain about the GR2 being too long? About the user interface on back? About the flash? Did anyone complain about the size of dials or buttons or number of them? Hard to imagine.

I really thought the GR2 back design was just about perfect for button placement and options. I hope I like the GR3 at least as much. More if possible.

Very mature response, better than those doom and gloom comments :)

PLShutterbug: It’s probably just me, but that front-of-camera shot just looks wrong.

It is unbelievably small ?

FrankGr: Doesn't the already released Fuji XF10 already have all these features and upgrades ? Is there any reason to wait for the GRIII ?

@FrankGr, thanks for letting me know. This GRIII is a major update of the previous model, it is probably the only APS-c compact camera that has sensor stabilisation as others pointed out. GR's 18mm is probably sharper than Fuji's based on some tests. This new model seems to have a redesigned lens, we will see how it fares.

jagge: At f1.8 it would have been interesting, like this.... Not at all

GR is for 'f8 and be there' type of shooting. I guess it is not your style.

Does Fuji do snap focusing? just checking.

Great news. An unique camera deserves its place.

Took GRII to Vietnam twice. One of the best travel and street photographic tool I ever use. it doesn't only have a sharp lens, but also there is something magical about how the sensor and lens combination draw light beautifully.

So the entire system is called R (aka revolution) because of one lens - 28-70 f2?

It is honesty though.

In an ideal photographic world, Canon make lenses, Nikon provide a body to go with, while Sony offer latest sensors.

Paul Amyes: I suppose the article achieved its purpose, but really all it provoked was a couple of people to make multiple posts denouncing the other as fan boys. This kind of brand tribalism is pathetic to say the least as is the journalism that promotes it.

Well said, also it does not seem there is any effort to moderate the comments section, which now just looks ridiculous.
