  • Created questions RX1 vs. RX100 LCD screen
    Hi, when I was using the RX100 in the past, I was impressed with its LCD screen in bright sunlight (with the menu setting for bright sunlight). Does somebody have both, the RX1 and RX100, and can ...
  • Replied in Agree 200%
    I do not say that I want a more mainstream product. "mainstream" sounds negative and is not focusing on the important point. I just said that IMHO the only way for Ricoh to survive with any kind of ...
  • How do you define serious? Or worth it to be considered good enough to make outstanding images? It is not the instrument per se that makes an image serious, it is how the photographer is using it. ...
  • Yes, that would be sad. But how many NEW customers would that bring to Ricoh? Bear in mind that as a producer it is only a numbers game without emotional arguments. How many customers are you ...
  • Sony RX 100 MKII and III, Canon G7X. IMHO the GR is not at all ultra simple. There are many, many ways to customize the GR with all it's options and custom modes. But this complexity makes it at ...
  • I do not understand why there are kind of "religious" battles between GR users what a GR should be and what not. Other companies have proven, that new features i.e. like tiltable screens are ...
  • Replied in New GR
    Same thinking here. No reason to sell the current GR, but probably many reasons to keep it and add the upcoming GRII to it :-D
  • Replied in I tell you why
    Same for me. I like both. 28mm and 35mm. Depends on situation. The question is how much larger is "just a little larger". I think everyone has a different opinion here. For me personally, the RX1 ...
  • Replied in In summary
    .....mmmhhh.... and where is now the difference to what I wrote? Do we not both say the same here? Why do you assume I regret here anything in any kind of direction? I am sorry but I do not like ...
  • Replied in I tell you why
    Which trend do you mean? The trend of the consumers to use more and more smartphones and P&S with 1 inch sensor (he does it), or the trend which Thom Hogan writes about in that articel that the ...
  • additions for my wishlist: I also would love to have: - tilt screen (something easy like with the Canon G7X is already enough for me) - minimum speed with ISO Auto 1/500s - keep the F2.8. I do not ...
  • Ricoh wants to sell new gear. This is how they make profit. An old Ricoh GR user will not buy the new GR, if there is not a significant improvement over the old GR. If this significant improvement ...
  • Nobody can judge that now until we have more information about the features and price tag of the new GR. Not everybody wants or needs 24MP. How faster will be the new AF? Will it make really a ...
  • I do also have the WA converter and the Merrills and their batteries and of course it would be nice to keep using both with the new GR. But to be honest, I still would ve up all this, if there is a ...
  • Please stay friendly. There is no need to become offensive, just because you have a different opinion ;) Neither you, nor I know the exact margins of GR. But is is for sure, that the total profit ...
  • Have you ever compared the LCD screen of the Ricoh GR with the one of the Sony RX100 (with the menu setting for bright sunlight)? The difference is very significant on sunny days. Even with 600.- ...
  • My hopes: - 24MP APS-C Sensor (only because of more MP for 47mm crop modus) - better LCD for bright sunlight. At least as good as the Sony RX100 bright light setting - faster AF (daylight and low ...
  • Replied in UPDATE
    unfortunately they do not ship to Germany....
  • but the 28-300G VR is bigger, heavier and more expensive than the 18-200 VRII. I doubt that the IQ or the AF is better with a bigger zoom range. Or am I wrong with this assumption?
  • - As cheap as possible, since I would use this lens onyl for this situation. I have FFL for all other knd of photography :) - It is for the family and friends.
