Ricoh GR Coming? Two More Days...

Ricoh GR Coming? Two More Days...
September 2018, Carl Garrard

Photokina 2018, not much longer now. Ricoh's special GR site is still full of activity and not letting up. With the special event planned in Germany and constant updates to the GR blog and GRist photographer pages, it's my guess that we will see an announcement of a new GR and/or a future release date. Of course I'm just guessing here, but if I were placing a bet on an announcement this year, this is where I'd put my money. More...
Ricoh GR

Most Pre-Photokina announcements have been about the new full frame mirrorless cameras and lenses with almost no new talk of compact cameras -less the recent LX100II or Fuji XF10. This leaves a gap square in the middle of those two, or rather above both announcements - with no other direct competition.

Is there a new GR on the horizon?

Let me know in the comments below if you think we'll see a new GR this year. Also, let us know what you would like to see in the next model of GR from Ricoh. I have a short list to add to the already stellar formula that has worked so well already, and this list would compel me to lay out my money right away. This list is in the order of most importance to me, but all three are vital:

1. Weather sealing
2. More resolution
3. Optical OVF w/clear LCD overlay

Stay Focused.

  1. I think this is going to be their only announcement for this show. I'm waiting for CP+ 2019. I think there will be more announcements there in respect to Pentax bodies & lenses.

  2. We all will know soon enough. I hope there is more. :)

  3. I hope so too! Need more K-3II successor!

  4. Agreed on the K3 successor. Plenty of new tech to put in available to make it a worthwhile upgrade!
