GR - Overview
Everything is big, except the size
- 16MP APS-C CMOS sensor
- New high-performing GR lens equ. 28mm F2.8
- Full HD Movie
- High-speed AF system
- Compact size
The GR lens opens up a world of expression that goes above and beyond its compact size.
The new GR inherits the product concept of the GR DIGITAL series while upgrading the basic specifications and functions of its predecessor. It is a pure joy to own and use, as it offers a wider selection of functions and much-improved performance, while retaining a pocket-size body and the refined design shared by all GR-series models.

Video introductionCheck out the expert commentary on the GR
New GR LENS 18.3mm F2.8
This model is equipped with the wide-angle 28mm equivalent in the 35mm format GR LENS 18.3mm F2.8, which achieves both a compact size and high performance. Using uncompromising design with a superior fixed focal length of 28mm, sharp, skillful depictive performance is available from the maximum aperture f2.8.
In addition to a unique, newly developed lens construction, glass with high refractive index and low dispersion qualities were used, along with optimized placement of aspherical high-precision molded glass lenses for aberration removal to the utmost limits, even image quality and contrast from the center to the edges of the image, and high resolution. Coupled with a lens construction that reduces ghosting, and multi-coating on all surfaces, this lens possesses excellent resistance against backlighting. Of course distortion and chromatic aberration are reduced to an absolute minimum, for the best overall optical performance of any GR model. With sufficient aperture efficiency and a 9-bladed iris aperture, beautiful blurring effects to the edges of the image with minimal falloff are achieved. Also equipped with an ND filter that can be manually controlled for a wide range of photographic expression.
Large 16MP APS-C CMOS sensor
TEquipped with a high-sensitivity, wide dynamic range APS-C large-size CMOS sensor (Approx. 16.2 megapixels (camera effective pixels)). Improved shadow noise characteristics makes a routine high-sensitivity shooting at ISO 3200 possible (Max: ISO 25600). By making the camera low-pass filter-less, the excellent lens characteristics are used as-is, providing clear depiction all the way to the edges of the image. By designing the sensor and lens to be mutually optimized, and inclusion of a large-format sensor, the GR achieves a compact, slim body, appropriate to its namesake.
Newly developed GR ENGINE V
To accommodate the newly designed APS-C size CMOS sensor, a new image processing engine, GR ENGINE V was developed. High-performance image processing algorithms suppress all types of noise, produce natural, sharp images, and suppress color saturation for specific colors that have the tendency to become saturated.
