»The GR has been a legend since 1996 …?«

The term ›legend‹ usually requires a certain historical dimension. Often, after a short time, a story is designed to impress. We will let you decide for yourself: The RICOH GR has been available since 1996. First there were several analogue models – until 2005. In October 2005, the first digital version came on the market. What they have in common and makes them special is easy to detect: All models are extremely small and discreet, have a lens with fixed focal length (28 mm equivalent) and make no compromises in image quality.

All pictures shown here have been made with the RICOH GR III and have been taken since March 2019.

»The GR III is naturally very suitable for the big city hunt, because you can remain undiscovered in the action and bustle of the cities as a street photographer and at the same time have a very close approach to your models and situations.«
