DPReview said that over the Ricoh GR, the GR II is "a fairly minor update ... the camera isn't a dramatic update ... the core of the camera remains the same".[1]

New features over the GR[edit]

  • NFC[1]
  • Maximum shutter speed when shooting at f/2.8 increased by 1/3 EV to 1/2500 s[1]
  • Can shoot 10 raw frames at its maximum shooting rate of 4 fps (up from 4 raw frames)[1]
