Ricoh GR III Review: King of Street Photography Cameras?

The Ricoh GR III is finally available and I was able to get a hands on test for about the past month. Thanks to BHPhoto for sending this out to review, they did provide this to test but did not pay or sponsor this video in any way. I believe the GR III reclaimed the title as the king of street photography cameras as it has almost everything the GR II had but improved on much more! With a newer body layout, touch screen, 24 megapixel sensor and more, its definitely worth an upgrade alone from the GR II in regards to autofocus.

The other is a backpack setup with the Nikon D750 and Tamron 15-30 lens for long exposures. Link is in the pinned post below for more videos!
