The Ricoh GR III is a modern digital version of a pocket-sized APS-C camera much loved by pros and street photographers. This new version has the same design as the original, but swaps the first camera’s wide 28mm equivalent lens for a more natural 40mm angle of view.

Announced in Europe a month ago, it has just been confirmed that this luxury compact camera will be available in North America – with B&H Photo and Adorama now taking pre-orders for an up-front cost of $996.95 – and also available in Australia as a special order via Ted's Cameras for AU$1,599.95.
