5Great
By teddy
Pros: Great camera for mobility. It is small and light so you can carry it everywhere. Large sensor, good white balance. Pretty fast auto focus, and the ability to use snap focus.
The camera is very fast in operation. Also, you can literally hold in one hand and change Just about most (if not all) settings with the hand you are using to hold it. That frees up the other hand for whatever you want - hold an umbrella in the rain, or a drink, or whatever.
Menus are straightforward and easy to understand.

Pretty decent macro function.

Cons:
Max 2.8 aperture and no image stabilization means you can only do so much in dark conditions. ISO works well at 1600, but isn't great at 3200. you can also do fractional increments, and pick a value somewhere in between.

Overall, this is a fantastic camera. I use it for street and travel, and it is easy to carry and easy to use. If you need a low light monster, this isn't it. Also, it's a fixed 28mm lens. I grew to like it a lot, though if given the choice I would have taken 35mm in the same package. Of corse, there is no camera that offers 35mm in he same package. And the overall package is so good that I bought it and now I like 28mm. also if you are new to cameras this is probably not a good only camera.

5Wish I knew about these years ago
By Matthew Zilic
Lighter than expected. Actually fits in a pocket. Very quick to start and focus, even set up was very quick. But the pictures really speak for themselves. You will not believe the image quality that comes from this camera. Physically, not too small. Easy to use. Wanted a light camera with great image quality to hike with. Definitely found it here.

5The best camera, is the one that's with you.
By YJ
Here are some of the cameras that are usually being compared to the GR: Fuji X100 series, Fuji X70, Nikon Coolpix A, Sony Rx100 series. Why did I pick GR? Its image quality tops all, its control tops all (my honest opinion) and it fits my pocket, so I carry it every single day. For me, the choice is pretty simple: being able to have the best IQ powerhouse in the pocket easily eliminated all other competitors from my shopping list. Granted, I love X100's retro look but I don't want to carry a bag everywhere I go; and X70 with its non-retractable lens, isn't as small as it appears; Nikon A is discontinued, unfortunately, and RX100 series, although small enough, but being 1" sensor, their image quality is not quite there. You really need to shoot GR in a serious way, to dig into its powerful customization capabilities, in order to really appreciate its ergonomics, ease of operation, and unsurpassed image quality - heck, it might just be one of the sharpest 28mm lenses, ever. It's a cult product, and it may not be something you fall in love with at first sight, but it could be the best thing one could have, if you know what you are looking for.
