Ricoh GR III

The Ricoh GR III continues Ricoh’s long-running series of GR cameras that have become favorites of street photographers and as pocketable cameras for travel photographers. The series started with film cameras and then evolved into digital. The GR III was released in September 2018. It features a 28mm ƒ/2.8 built-in lens and has an APS-C sensor. (Note: There’s also a GR Digital III that is an older camera (2009) with a smaller sensor.)

Ricoh has introduced a specialized wide-angle lens for the Ricoh GR III, expanding the standard 28mm lens to a broader 21mm. So if love the GR III but wish it had a wider lens, this might just be the fix you’re after. I’ve been testing it out on the GR III. Here’s how it works and what the real-world results look like in practical terms. I’ve found that it does an excellent job optically, but it comes with one important negative.
