the difficulty is there are so many options to post photos on these days - and this site takes a back seat to those where people will want clicks and 'likes' for their photos.
That coupled with Ricoh's slow movement on improvement (the GRII didn't wow many by having the same sensor as the GR I) and then mobile phones climbing ever closer to compact camera's performance.
Ricoh have made an announcement today stating despite market shift which is affecting all producers they look to be holding to their GR line, which would be great news to followers here >https://pentaxrumors.com/2017/04/12/ric ... -business/
I still use and love my GR I (having had the GRD II and GRD IV prior) and it's my go to travel camera as opposed to my D800s and Contax 645 I use for work. Great sensor, great handling, and with RAW files it's still a winner for me. Hoping the next reiteration will inspire again (as Ricoh seem to have always missed a step with versions from the GRD series in incremental updates ).
And still happy this site is up here - thanks to Pavel and supporters !
