    I have a Ricoh R10, same line of camera but maybe cheaper, and 10 yrs ago had a GR? film camera.

    The digital and film ones were and are great, they make excellent lenses, picture taking became a lot of fun. From what my friends in the business tell me, these cameras are the choice "back-up" camera that pros take with them into the field for whent their regular big camera breaks/ runs out of batteries. Lightweight and dam good.
