My GR wishlist (hint: not full-frame)
9 months ago

After 6 months of great fun with the GR, I wish its successor had these features:

  1. Fast autofocus in low-light.
    I have too many out-of-focus shots of my baby crawling at high speed. On-sensor phase-detection like Canon 70D?
  2. Faster lens: f/1.4 for better low-light shots and shallower depth-of-field.
    I played with a Canon 24mm f/1.4 and got great results.
  3. Face detection in all modes (currently only in automatic mode)
    Works great on the Sony NEX-6.
  4. Sensor cleaning
    My GR had a dust spot and spent 3 weeks in service.
  5. Weather-proof
    Shooting in the rain...

Just for fun:

  • Manual focus ring + better focus peaking (color overlay instead of black lines or all-gray image)
  • Special model with black-and-white sensor, like the Leica Monochrom. The resolution would be insane.
