    Hi--I'm an old film guy that's been lurking here for a while. My last decent camera was a Nikon f2 until this afternoon when I took delivery of a Ricoh GRD III from a member here (burro39). I'm really happy with the camera and the experience of purchasing through the forum. I'm looking forward to sharing a photo or two over the weeks to come.

    Best --Jim

    The camera feels really good for such a small package. Tongue and cheek aside with the Nikon, the Ricoh is an inspiring little device.

    Thanks everyone! I took a deep breath and posted one from yesterday afternoon in the weekly challenge. Pretty much a default jpeg, but tweaked a bit in Aftershot.
