  • Ever considered Ricoh GXR with M-mount module? Design apart, only a vastly superior image quality would make the Leica T a better option than the GXR. Okay, maybe the EVF is better on the Leica T - ...
  • Practically speaking, you should certainly wait until April 24 before deciding. The new camera that Leica is launching then might suit your purpose - if it takes M mount lenses without too much ...
  • Tom, you're absolutely right to point this out. The "Keep shooting conditions" option involves shooting conditions between shots, and not between switching off and on. For storing recurrent ...
  • On the final page of the Setup tab of the Menu, set the option "Keep shooting conditions" to On. That should do it. - Dirk
  • In what way would you say the IQ of the M9 is different from the GXR's? This was one of my main points of interest when I formulated my question: I have the GXR, I have a handful of Zeiss and ...
  • Ah yes, but we do not just need good cameras, we also need good occasions to use them. So if there is disposable income, my question rather takes the form: do I spend it on a Leica camera, or do I ...
  • Ah yes, a GRXII ... I wouldn't hesitate a second. But Ricoh's plans with the GXR are about as transparent as the La Brea tar pits, so is it worthwhile to wait if nothing may be forthcoming at all? ...
  • Thanks Harold, quite instructive.
  • Hello Harold, I believe you missed part of my message: as I wrote, I do have the GXR, and I use it with Zeiss and Voigtländer M-mount lenses (see my gear list). What I did not write (but what ...
  • Created discussions GXR vs M240, anyone?
    Esteemed forum members, Would any of you be able to help me with a direct comparison of Leica M240 and Ricoh GXR with the M-module? The point is that many of the features that are welcomed by Leica ...
  • Exactly. But to convince photographers who might otherwise go for a GXR (or existing users who would want to upgrade from the GXR), the Leica T type 701 will have to compete with the Sony A7/R, ...
  • Any discussion of what might happen to the GXR line needs to take into account that the GXR basically served two functions: - the native modules competed in the AF compact mirrorless market - the ...
  • Interesting; thanks for the reference. Good to know that the Snapshot Skopar matches the Biogon from f8 onward - but that also implies that the Biogon has an edge in the wider aperture range (even ...
  • My travel combo too is very similar: - Superwide Heliar 15/4.5 - Snapshot Skopar 25/4.0 - Nokton Classic 50/1.5 - M-Rokkor 90/4.0. I have been thinking about replacing the Skopar with a Biogon ...
  • I have the same experience: I use two GXR bodies, and both start having problems - in both cases with the rubber grips, and in one case with the unprotected screen (on the other body, I was wise ...
