Ricoh GR III price: around €900

image credit: Pentax France

At the Salon de la Photo in Paris photo show, which opened today, the Ricoh GR III camera was shown under glass. No specs were provided. According to Ricoh Imaging reps it should be launched in March 2019 at around €900 (a price that includes 20% VAT and is, therefore, equivalent to around $850). They also pointed out that the camera is currently undergoing final testing with a specific emphasis on dust resistance.

FYI: the last GR II model is currently selling for $500.
