Why is there no Ricoh user here?
It's famous for wide lens. R1 uses a new image processor and Ricoh should be ready for DC market.

Good Question,
I only just purchased my first Digital Camera, Panasonic FZ-20 and have decided the Ricoh Caplio R1 will be the perfect camera for my wife.

The one thing that Im dissapointed (so far) with on the FZ-20 is its slowest shutter speed is only 8 seconds. I think I'll be borrowing the Caplio for its ability to take time exposures up to 3 hours ( I experiment with astro photography) , tho for most of my Barn Door tracker photos 5 minuites is just right (with a film camera anyway)
