  • Greetings, theory03, I, too, bought a back up GXR, along with the most fine 24-85 zoom. When doing real shooting, as opposed to a snap here, a snap there, I like to use both bodies. One with the ...
  • Thanks, Ned, for your speedy and helpful reply. Adorama does, indeed, have them, or soon will, at the bargain price of $219. Why they are on e bay for $400+ is a mystery to me, but a lot of things ...
  • Greetings, Ned, A quick question: where did you find the VF2 for so little? Everyone I locate is north of $400, which seems way out of line. Many thanks, Steve
  • Tom, what the hell, there's plenty of bandwidth to go around, even here in the mountains of New Mexico. Yes, I have the EVF and use it all the time with my GXR. It's a wonderful combination. I ...
  • A bit clearer: it's the electronic finder I'm after. At your suggestion, I put the little folding magnifier on my wife's Canon S110, and she says it makes a huge difference in daylight. Thanks for ...
  • Tom, I agree, in part. however I've been searching for an additional EVF for my GXR's and the cheapest ones I can find are in the $400 range....more than I paid for my new M Mount. Something's ...
  • Replied in GXR modules
    Do you have and are you selling the electronic viewfinder? Thanks.
  • Good morning, Tom, I discovered the problem...the Ricoh site only works w/Macs up to OS 10.7. I'm running 10.9. So I'll have to find an old Mac, or a friend with Windows. Many thanks for your ...
  • I've just received my new GXR M mount from Upgrade Monkey, and they are a good outfit. They keep in contact, ship properly, pay the freight and customs. The thing arrived promptly, and was the ...
  • Replied in leica t or not
    If using vintage, or even new, Leica lenses, give a look at the Ricoh GXR. It's been out a couple of years now, and has a loyal band of followers. I've had one for 1 1/2 years, and use it with a ...

  • You have a real keeper. Very nice photograph. Thanks for sharing.
  • I agree with both of the above posts: the 60mm is a fantastic lens....keep it for sure. I used the SL2 for years as a working news photographer, and it is a classic. The last of the hand-built all ...
  • Keep looking for the little 40mm lens....it's a real keeper, and wonderful with the GXR. A great portrait lens, and VERY sharp.
  • You can avoid the bother, and expense, of a cable release by using your built-in self timer. Put your GXR on a tripod, set up your picture, set the self-timer to 10 sec., and stand back. Good ...
  • In a few words, SPEND THE BUCKS. I've used both of the ultra wide CV lenses on the GXR for a couple of years now, and they behave in a fantastic manor. Good everything. The GXR is one of the best ...
  • Greetings, A Subset, I don;t have an answer for you....it sounds like a great project. The GXR is the best camera out there to mount just about ANYTHING on. It is a fantastic tool I have a question ...
  • Sorry for my slow response. It's the Season. Anyway, congratulations on your new M mount. This, and the attached GXR, is one of the best cameras I've ever used. I used Leicas throughout a 50 year ...
  • According to a Canadian friend, who just bought one of these for me, they still have a few left, and also the wonderful M mount  unit. But they have to be purchased in Canada. Good shopping.
  • New Orleans artist.musician Amzie Adams, with one of his home-made instruments in front of one of his murals. I really love the GXR , a fantastic travel camera. Made with the CV 15mm.
