  • Nice article.  I prefer Ricoh's take on sensor shifting over Olympus's.  For me true colour is a better use of the tech than extra high rez.  Though I expect both companies could do both.  Also ...
  • Yep, decent sealing would be the big one on my list. Do we know this is not going to happen? Pentax have always been good with this.
  • Yep, this pretty much sums up my position too.  If it does come to pass and the new cam is more than just a Pentax makeover and has a must have (to me) feature I'll pick up the new one, if not ...
  • If there were a name change I wonder if it would be to 'Pentax GR'.  Pentax has nearly always been a brand name in much the same way as Lumix or EOS.  It would end the confusion of which cameras ...
  • I liked them all, but you're are right I didn't get the last one significance of the last one.  I've been to Osaka, albeit briefly, as well. Sorry.  Not sure captions help any pic enough.  ...
  • I like these, the style works, the first five in particular. cheers Al
  • Yep :-)  Would make me reconsider my resolution never to buy a DSLR again.  And give it a FF sensor with the same pixel density as the current Q they'd have a pretty unique offering!
  • Make the next SD mirrorless and replace the mirrorbox with something like this *ducks*  :-)
  • I think there is still a market for a smaller sensor camera if done right.  The success of Go-Pro and of course phones as cameras means there is a thirst for the right cam. Photography has never ...
  • I'd definitely agree that now the APS-C sensor size is out of the bag stepping down to 1" does not appeal. If they could fit an EVF in with the flash and keep the same size can then great but ...
  • Bah, sorry, it's easier to knock than be constructive.
  • Exactly yes.  I just think Ricoh will stick with just a 28 for commercial reasons. They have found a niche that shifts enough units and have built up some brand loyalty. Adding a second focal ...
  • Hmmm sorry, this comes over more negative than I mean! Its not a bad idea!
  • I like the idea of GRs being available at other focal lengths, but personally 50 is one I wouldn't buy, and as has been mentioned I can't see Ricoh deviating from 28.
  • Hmmm interesting points, but a moveable sensor would increase its size, IBIS is most useful on longer focal lengths, plus it normalises the shutter speed at a point to slow to freeze motion, ...
  • Thank you, much appreciated. That sense of timelessness is something I really like in image so good to know this one has a hint of it. And probably sums me up, old feeling with a tendency for ...
  • Thank you Joel, always the aim to make these slightly unsettling :-) Best wishes to you and yours
  • Great thread, I'm enjoying all the images! So, here's one from me, I've had more positive feedback about other pics this year, but I like this one as the first from me in a direction I'd like to ...
  • Hi, I've been following all comments and test images with great interest, all very very useful.  To my un-educated Foveon eye it looks the call between the M and Q seems to be coming down to ...
  • Couldn't the mount protrude a bit from the body and house the required bits of the Q "lens" and still be short?
