In May last year I was the unofficial photographer at a wedding, toting a Leica M9 and Ricoh GXR-M with Zeiss Sonnar 50/1.5 and Voigtlander 35/1.4.  That was the last time I really pushed the GXR.  The images it gave me were super, but I felt quite let down and hampered by the slow shot to shot speed.  All this stuff about 'deliberate shooting makes you a better photographer' won't help at all if you are trying to capture the right moment as a wedding bouquet arcs through the air.  The number of the 'right' images I lost while the GXR reset itself between images was quite large.  But I still love the camera for the images it produces, and use it in less demanding situations.
