Very dissapointing, this certainly is no CX replacement. Gone are the CX’ excellent LCD screen and the often praised Ricoh menu. Only the plastic body of this camera shines.

I suspect it’s more of a reworked and rebadged Pentax than a Ricoh development, and I don’t get that. Nothing wrong with entry level Pentax compacts, but next to Ricoh’s GR and GXR high end compacts, this makes no sense to me.

Please Ricoh, make your loyal fans happy with a high end zoom compact. This one only dissapoints. I cannot imagine it selling well since very few shops carry Ricoh and the public does not regognise the brand. When choosing a travel zoom camera range they will go for Canon, Panasonic, Sony or Ricoh’s own Pentax compacts.

How can I make my preferences “stick” in manual mode? No flash center exposure metering and after turning the camera off, it ALWAYS goes back to factory settings. INFURIATING!!!
Otherwise a cool, useful camera.
