    Default what are the selling point of Ricoh's GR-D?

    I heard of this camera too often, but never understand the selling point of it.
    dpreview says the image is soft and noisy..
    yes it's 28mm but there are many 28mm ps cams..

    I own the Ricoh GRD. In terms of performance, this is what I like about it:
    • Extremely low lens distortion. One lowest among the compact camera category.
    • Good 'film-like' colors. In fact, the images looks very similar to the Fuji Finepix S2 Pro (my previous DSLR camera).
    • Images at ISO 200 onward is noisy, but can be reduced with Adobe Photoshop using LAB channels.
    • Multi-coated glass element optics are sharp. Images are not as soft as what DPReview had tested.
    • Very low lens flare even without a hood.
    • Excellent bokeh for a compact camera (very good for environmental portraitures).
    • Excellent 'out-of'camera' black-and-white images.
