  • I saw that one before I finally found a standard model. I have a difficult time seeing anything electronic as a "collectible." At least paying a premium for it.
  • I can see the wisdom of including GXR with M8 at Rangefinder Forum. Both M8 and GXR/A12 are great digital platforms for Leica glass; and the Ricoh A12 module is just about the only digital ...
  • Thanks for the responses. I have a GRD II and am having a lot of fun with the thing. I had read the B&W images rendered by the 8.1 sensor in the GRD I were superior from the standpoint of ...
  • Created discussion thread Rarety of original digital GR
    I notice that the original (8.1 MP) Digital GR cameras are about as rare as hens teeth on Ebay. Is it because these cameras are so popular that owners rarely sell, or, did they suffer a ...
  • The improvement in image quality is certainly a possibility, but an increase to 20 megapixels is likely not going to result in significant image quality improvement. At any rate, it had better be...

  • The strength of this camera is the overall image quality. To my eyes, the images are truly outstanding if you resist the urge to pixel peep.......Which, admittedly, is a hard thing to do these...

  • I've owned the camera from a couple months after introduction. For some unknown reason I put the thing in the drawer and quit using it regularly. The other day, while culling old images on my...

  • It's kind of funny, I have never looked at, or even considered the A6000 camera; but as Sony competitors bring out new cameras, and new iterations of existing cameras, and the comparisons to A6000...

  • Commenting is not the same as moaning. I own a GX7 and pretty much like it. Size and price are not aspects of the GX7 that are displeasing. Poor EVF resolution, inferior IS, and lack of weather...

  • Olympus has to be jumping for joy. Aside from 4k, I can't see where Panasonic has done anything to pull at Oly's business.....Except maybe that population of OMD/EP owners who are thinking: "Geez,...

  • The lens I keep attached to the SD15 is an M42 Fujinon 1.8. I was relatively cheap, and is an excellent lens. I've had a bit of fun with the camera. It seems that the control layout is about the ...
  • Replied in M8?
    Thanks for the response. I did go with the M8. I am on the same wavelength with you on the GXR as I do own one. The A12 M camera unit is great. It is unbelievable that the GXR did not make it as a ...
  • No doubt, Sigma wants to see Sigma AF focus lenses on their DSLRs. It has been fun playing around with other legacy lenses. These were taken using a old Takumar 300 5.6 on the SD15:
  • I have run into a few instances of "fast" lenses not allowing full range of focus. So far, the Fuji 55 1.8, and now, this Schneider have worked well. Manual focus is a challenge, but the sensor ...
  • I could not have been convinced of this before buying my M8, but now, just over a week in, I find myself wondering if there is not some wisdom in buying the lenses/kit first. I started off with a ...
  • Replied in M8?
    Well, I never did thank everyone for the great responses. I did go with the M8. I wound up paying a couple hundred more for the security of 30 day return policy from one of the major online dealers. ...
  • Sorry, I forgot to add content. Another M42 lens that does work on the SD15. Sorry about cable in background. I thought there might be someone out there interested.
  • Replied in WARNING ! ....
    I suppose the long and short of it is that, were it not for this unfortunate development with M8 LCDs, they would not be so reasonably priced in the used market. Buying it, and then having it fail, ...
  • Replied in M8?
    Thanks for the information. At the risk of being a nuisance, one more queston: The idea of not being able to review pictures on an LCD is not that distressing to me. I still remember film, so I ...
