What if anything has anyone heard about the R3? Price, quality, date of release? I'm looking for a simple point & Shoot for my wife.

I have posted a review of the R3:

The R3 feature list and design looked great and made my mouth watery.

Thanks for your review -- it was very helpful to me ... and sorry ... after reading your very practical analysis I won't be buying your Caplio R3 either :sad:. Looks like Ricoh have really missed the shot.

thanks for your execellent review. I have myself a Ricoh GX. Despite its larger 1/1.8 CCD it too suffers a lot from, but with the R3 and its smaller 1/2.5 CCD the problem became even worse, as your pictures show. Ricoh simply doesn't get noise under control. However my GX suffers from excessive chromatic aberrations as well and in this respect the R3 has improved substantially. I haven't seen any such ugly purple seams in your pics. Of course, the image stabiliser should work as well, though you can't expect a CCD based image stabiliser to be as good as an optical one. Especially your wide angle pics are also fairly. Thus if we wouldn't have the noise problem, it would really be a fine camera. It is really a pitty that Ricoh doesn't address this problem.

Ricoh has new firmwares for R3 to fix all the problems you guy have. I just bought one last week with the latest firmware and do not have any problem.
