Sooner or later your RICOH GR II or Ricoh GR III is gonna break. They’re not reliable cameras, although they are very good cameras. Ricoh has one of the worst durability of cameras in terms of longevity. They all sooner or later break. My RICOH GR II called it quits after around 3-4 years, and this new RICOH GR III is already giving me lens problems after 2 years.
Takeaway: RICOH GR camera as the best everyday shooter, but don’t take (only) one on some epic world wide journey. Or if you’re gonna shoot something super important and reliability is essential, don’t use RICOH GR for it.
