Major Ricoh GXR system price-drops (GXR body and GXR P10 compact-zoom)

The Ricoh GXR system got a lot of attention at launch time because of its originality and outside-the-box thinking, however, its initial prices were Leica-for-the-middle-class, so it restricted its adaption to photographers who really fell in love with this idea and could afford to do so.

But this is partially changing now as Ricoh is making sizable price-drops. In the US market, Amazon is accepting GXR + P10 pre-orders at $500 even. That's both the GXR body and the P10 compact-zoom (think CX-series compact-zooms) sensor+lens module.

The price of the GXR body-only is currently $550 at Amazon, however, at Adorama the price has dropped to $350.

In France, discounts have been announced as you can see at Focus Numerique and Le Monde de la Photo.

Speaking of Ricoh, the GR Diary recaps the 3rd Ricohforum meet-up in Europe.
