The Ricoh GR is back, though not much has changed. If you're not familiar with the Ricoh GR, it's a legendary series of point and shoot cameras beginning with their 35mm line 1996. But don't let the phrase point and shoot fool you. Over the years the Ricoh GR has typecast itself as one of photography's go-to street cameras. The trademark fixed focal length 28mm f/2.8 lens of the GR series produces pin-sharp results that teeter on the edge of Leica-ness.

Known mostly for the original 35mm Ricoh GR from 1996 and the digital Ricoh GR in 2013, there were actually 10 iterations of the GR. This included five 35mm models and five digital. Scroll to the end of the article for the complete list of Ricoh GR cameras.

Ricoh GR II

Now Ricoh has introduced its 11th GR with the Ricoh GR II. It is essentially the same as the GR but with built-in Wifi capabilities. A useful feature, but not essential by any means. Probably the best thing about the Ricoh GR II is that it dropped the price the previous model (Ricoh GR) by $200
