Ricoh, Compacts with Professional Features.

We have a large range of the fantastic compacts from Ricoh. All showcasing outstanding build quality with some innovative ideas too. Take the GR Digital III for the first example. It is a compact yet robust camera with an exceptional 28mm equivalent f1.9 lens on it. Perfect for candid and street photography with fast and silent operation. Small enough to fit in your pocket but with enough image quality and manual control to be taken seriously. Have a browse through the GR Digital III Flickr photo pool to see some of the great images people are capturing with this camera. The black and whites are particularly good.

You can read a thorough review and view sample shots at Photography Blog.

Now the GR-Digital III is an updated version of a classic camera format, while the Ricoh GXR is something completely new. It's an, unique to todays market, interchangable lens unit camera. Not just interchangable lens, but the whole imaging system changes. The lens's are a sealed unit containing the sensor, shutter, aperture and image processing engine. The big advantage with a system like this is that the one camera body becomes so versatile. You can attach the A12 prime lens unit and you have a great quality APS-C sized sensor on a 50mm equivalent f2.5 lens. Or you can switch it up for the S10 zoom unit which turns the camera into a compact with a 24-70 equivalent f2.5-4.4 zoom lens. So you can choose between compactness with zoom or highest quality with low light capability in one camera. For an in depth review visit With GXR Flickr photo pool being worth a look too.

Also stocking all the other great Ricoh compacts like the GX200, CX2 and R10.

NEW Canon EF 70-200mm f2.8 IS II Lens

We recently recieved word about Canon's new 70-200mm f2.8 IS II lens, This newest version offers improvements on an already solid design including a redesigned optical system and a closer minimum focusing distance. It is fully weatherproof. The mount, focus mode switch, and focusing ring are completely dust-proof and drip-proof. The lens is designed and built to withstand the rigors of everyday use by professional photographers.

The Canon 70-200mm f2.8L IS II USM lens features a redesigned optical system with an added fluorite lens element along with five ultralow dispersion (UD) lens elements to reduce chromatic aberrations and to maintain high-contrast images from corner to corner. To add to its flexibility, the lens has a reduced minimum focusing distance of 3.9 feet, a big improvement over the 4.6 feet of its predecessor. The lens has a ring-type ultrasonic motor (USM) AF motor, that along with a new CPU and AF algorithms, make for fast, quiet AF, and match the capbilities of the new 1D mk IV and 7D.

As well as internal improvements, there also are enhanced external differences. The thickness of the external switches has been reduced to guard against accidental switching and for an improved appearance. Also, something rarely seen in an age of autofocus, the manual focus ring is now wider and has been redesigned for improved manual focusing. get excited...
