  • Hmmm maybe Ricoh could build the helicoid into the camera and keep it M mount.  Anyhow off topic I guess...
  • Yep, the A7s looks to be a very very good cam that plays nicely with old lenses, including problematic rangefinder ones.  To pricey for me though.  A pared back FF cam from Ricoh that works as ...
  • Great list.  Particularly 1, 2, 3, 4, 8, 9, 12 :-)    Re: AF I wonder if Ricoh could do their own version of Panasonic's DFD technique, to use the character of out of focus areas to calculate the ...
  • Probably not, but there's definitely a market for a $600 camera to take $10-$400 lenses :-)
  • Hmmm looks like Zvonimir maybe correct about a series of release moves building up to Photokina. Using Zvonimir's chess analogy if the XG-1 was the first move with a pawn, then this is the knight...

  • Heh, yep that was my decider as well :-)
  • Hi, thanks for  linking these, very useful.  Regarding the interior shots labelled 8, are there processing differences between these, does the Q have the green channel sharpening? On the M image I ...

  • I'll play. Prefer the top, but that's an easy choice with the weird halos in the second one.
  • Yep, could you post the Q shot again with no USM? It sure looks ugly with it.  Since you mentioned you applied the USM to the Merrill image as well it looks like your demonstrating that you can ...

    Hi, different dialect? Yes, I from Devon, aaarrrr :-) Is it the word content that's the problem? I guess it has two meanings, content as in happy and content as in contents of a box or book. So in ...

    A truly Caldwellian response :-) I think you're right, the novelty of novelty is wearing thin when it comes to tech for tech sake.  More people are exploring the heartlands rather than pushing to ...
