GXR: 28mm or 50mm for street shooting
May 2, 2012

I want to buy either the A12 50mm or the A12 28mm module. I have a Sigma DP1s (28mm) and am getting DP2 (41mm) here in the next days. The idea is to keep one of the Sigmas and then accordingly either get the 50mm or 28mm Ricoh. Thinking in the end I will most likely sell the DP1s and choose the 28mm Ricoh and the DP2. The GXR will be used mainly for street shooting. Do you prefer 28mm or 50mm for street shooting? The 50mm will get you closer to your subjects, but then it may be easier to miss a subject when trying to frame quickly. The 28mm seems to be the better choice for street photography. Love to hear your opinions. D.
