The Ricoh GR II is the latest in Ricoh’s long-running series of wide-angle compacts and the second digital version to be based around a large APS-C-sized sensor. The series is much loved, which has prompted all sorts of rumors about what the next GR update would include, but it’s safe to say this isn’t the camera those rumors had predicted. Instead, it’s a fairly minor update and it’s easy to be cynical and wonder whether it’s only been done to bolster the price and stop people writing off the camera as being an ‘old’ model.
