I'm so sad.

Wallace Ross: My account is subject to this trial. I like it! I'm all about just sharing images and seeing other people's work without having whether anyone else likes it causing a bias. I have a decent following for my film photography but was becoming disillusioned, this came at the right time for me.

I'm also interested in this. When you look at the other's posts you can't see the like count?

ZeBebito: I hope China banned Leica from commercial operations. Considering is their main market, they should think twice before making this kind of promotional. And trying to imply Tank Man shot with a Leica R is pure BS.

@twostep, no, because the photograph hasn't been shot with a Leica which is trying to use this story in advantage to get more fans.

"Unfortunately there's no workaround for the GR III's autofocus system, which – sadly – is still pretty hopeless in low light."

Maybe you should try "Snap Focus" and enjoy shooting without delays.

ozturert: If this camera was made by Canon, DPReview would bash it like:

- Bad AF in low light
- Bad in bright light because it doesn't have an EVF
- No 4K video! Come on Canon, this is 2019!

But it is Ricoh so these are only "minor" issues... If this was Sony, then those would even be advantages :)

Just saying...

Did you consider the fact Ricoh GR III doesn't attract photographers who want to shot with cameras that have the latest technology?

This camera is made for street, travel, documentary, photojournalism, not for studio, wedding, fashion or events.

Just saying...

In reply to:

Simon97: Of course larger sensors are more capable. That's why there are medium format cameras. OTOH, many people don't want the bulk and expense of the gear. That's why I use micro 4/3rds. it is very compact and doesn't bog me down while traveling. Most modern raw converting software is amazing at reducing noise while retaining detail which is a plus.

@String, I highly recommend you to watch all these videos: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL7ECB90D96DF59DE5

Then think again about your comment... unless you are sarcastic :)

John Vant Land: I'm a recovering Canon FF addict who had an addiction to the "L" lenses & did part time prof. freelance work (that 100% fueled my buying of all my Canon and RRS gear for the past 10 years). Canon never let me down. As I aged & we moved & I quit the freelance work, I grew tired of lugging all the expensive gear around on trips. I switched to Olympus M43 format with a sensor that is 1/2 the size. I didn't tell (m)any of my social media followers and they never knew the difference. I took my camera and 2 PRO lenses to more events because it was so much lighter in weight & would handle 90% of my needs. But I used it 200% more of the time & get tremendous images, as sharp or sharper than with the latest "L" lenses because even the newer IS lenses can't compare to the insane IS of the Olympus & (PRO) lens combination, at 1/2 the cost & weight. A.I. software will upsize and clean my smaller size images when I need the help. I greatly question the FF dogma; FF is often overkill & unnecessary.

I had an Olympus as well (omd 5 m2 w 17mm f1.8), I liked it but the main reasons I didn't feel it was the right camera for me are low light performances, DR, and sharpness.
I didn't cover events but I almost entirely do street/candid and travel photography.
I'm just interested in how could you overcome the significant drop in the fields I mentioned before, I know size and weight plays a key role here too.

FeDost: Why comparing the sensors of a mid-range (4 years) older camera with a professional and significantly newer camera?

Thanks for clarifying this, Richard.

I believe their sensor's pixel size is almost identical but my question is: it is right to compare a 4 year older APSC sensor with a newer Full Frame sensor? To be honest, I think in 4 years the technology improvement is significant. I also believe Full Frame sensors for pro cameras are made with better specifications.
Maybe we can compare the D7000 with the D600 better than the D810?

On article DPReview TV: Ricoh GR III review (351 comments in total)

What about the handling? For example, it doesn't say anything about missing the exposure compensation and AF-S - C-AF controls which for me it's so good to have, that's why I just bought a GR II for half of the GR III price.

I really don't understand the point of some people, I just wanted to say that in my opinion, the D750 is better than this, then somebody got offended.

Grow up!

In reply to:

GabrielZ: The X100 series needs only 3 things to be perfect for what it is...a new lens (very likely to happen) weather sealing and image stabilization, either optically or in-body. It would be nice to get at least 2 of these in a next-gen model🤞

Personally, I think that is mandatory for a travel and street camera to be weather sealed just because it will be used mostly outside. Then I can survive with everything else, at least the camera will work if I'm in a very humid place or I catch a rainfall.
