Fixed Prime Lens Cameras Comparison List

Ricoh GR Compact Camera

Ricoh GR – Compact Fixed Prime Lens Camera

My goal was to find a compact camera for everyday photography, with a wide-angle field of view and a fast, integrated prime lens. I wanted the best possible image quality in relation to a small body size/weight for a reasonable price.

Using DPreview´s camera feature search I identified and compared all camera models that are equipped with an integrated, fixed prime lens and sensors equal to or bigger than APS-C. My comparison showed that the Ricoh GR 3 is the smallest and Ricoh GR2 the lightest fixed Prime Lens Camera currently available. Read on and compare yourself…

All technical specifications would be meanness if not put into practical use, for example in form of a laboratory or real life shooting test. Wherever possible I also listed review ratings, provided by popular gear review websites and linked them to the respective source pages.

Comparison Summary:

  • The fastest aperture f-stop is f/1.7 (Leica Q,X & X-U)
  • The widest prime lens is 21 mm (Sigma dp0)
  • The longest prime lens is 75 mm (Sigma dp3) .
  • The lightest camera weights 245 g (Ricoh GR)
  • The smallest camera body volume is 224 cm³ (Ricoh GR3)
