This is the description of the camera. With technical details, product images etc., maybe later on an official DPRF-review? User Reviews in the other tab.

The ultimate snapshot camera for the times. To further enhance the essential values of a camera true to the GR-series concept of optimizing image quality, snapshot capabilities and portability, this latest GR-series model is equipped with a complete range of newly designed main components, including a lens, an image sensor and an imaging engine. Despite a compact body one size smaller than its predecessor, it incorporates a large APS-C-size CMOS image sensor with approximately 24.24 effective megapixels to produce high-resolution images, while its short start-up time of approximately 0.8 seconds allows for quick, responsive shooting.

It also provides an assortment of new features, such as a high-speed hybrid AF system, an originally developed SR (Shake Reduction) mechanism, and touch-screen operation for intuitive control, to improve operability and functionality. After the product launch, the GR III is expected to be upgraded in the future via firmware updates to further enhance its functions and overall performance

Small, APSC sensor, operate with 1 hand only
no viewfinder, expensive
Basically, my conclusion is that it’s still the good ol’ iconic GR that we know. The king of the streets. The king of snap shots. It’s smaller, it’s slightly faster, it’s still the perfect EDC (everyday carry) camera. Most importantly, it’s still one of the most fun cameras I’ve ever used.

BUT, if you disliked the GR/GR2, or if you didn’t ‘get’ the hype of the Ricoh GR/GRD line, then there is little here that will make you change your mind.

It’s a new lens design, but the lens specs remain the same. It’s still an 18.3mm f/2.8 fixed lens on an APS-C sensor (28mm-equivalent in ‘full frame’ terms).

There is still no built-in viewfinder. Those hoping for a pop-up viewfinder similar to the Sony RX100 will be disappointed.

It’s still not weather-sealed. There is no tilt screen. There is no 4K video. It is NOT a competitor to the Sony RX100 line.

It’s more evolutionary than revolutionary, but there are some genuinely useful upgrades – mainly the image stabilization and the touch screen.

But, there are ..... asfg zrhjetzjetujktujkrzuk zr,tu io
