    Hello, everyone.

    I've stumbled upon this site while researching a replacement for my old Minox 35ML. In recent years, I've been all DSLR but miss carrying a high image quality pocketable camera.

    Other than copious family photos, my primary interest is in B+W.

    Other interests include cycling, vintage fountain pens.

    Looking at the GR Digital III currently, would like to hear opinions.

    The GRD III is a great little camera, with excellent controls and handling. The limitations need to be noted, however: small sensor and fixed focal length lens. It's the camera that I never left home without until a few weeks ago...when I acquired a GRD iV!

    You should check out threads here, on the Ricoh forum and Flickr groups to see what amazing photos people are able to squeeze out of this little gem.

    Oh! And welcome!!

    Thanks, Chuck and Bill.

    No worries on the fixed lens. I'm a fan of primes.
