Ricoh GR Lens review: High imaging performance at a more accessible price

After analyzing the lens performance of the Nikon Coolpix A, we’ve now turned our attention to that camera’s direct competitor, the Ricoh GR. Read on to see how well the GR lens stacks up against the rival Nikkor.

The Ricoh GR is very much in the same mold as the Nikon Coolpix A but can trace its roots back to the film era with the original GR1 sporting a 28mm f/2.8 fixed focal length lens back in the day. With the digital Ricoh GR featuring a APS-C format 16.2 Mpix CMOS and a retracting 18.3mm f/2.8 prime (equivalent to a 28mm) it’s a very capable and very compact camera ideal for not only landscapes, architecture, and documentary type work but also environmental portraiture and street photography.
