Time to release some quality pancake primes for this one.

That button on the front is indeed a wasted one.
Love the custom settings on the main dial. I loved that feature on my LX3 and sadly OMD-Em5 does not have that.

On article Ricoh offers GR II firmware version 1.10 (21 comments in total)

My question still remains unanswered. Does this one keep focusing on the background instead of the subjects? GR-I had this problem.

In reply to:

what_i_saw: So much for the mirror less cameras being small in size. At this rate soon the smallish to normal sized DSLR will be at par on size and feature front. And with their usual fast focusing abilities + comparatively cheaper lenses, soon we will have to take a re-look at them.

@Cipher - My only issue is the size. Anything bigger than OMD EM-5 (which includes OMD EM1 too) means that one should also have a look at other options like DSLR's with small form factor.

@Jacques Cornell - With a bright prime, IS ceases to be a deal breaker. And an optical viewfinder over EVF anyday for me. Rest of things do not matter to the way I shoot. And better S-AF??

I am happy with OMD EM-5 + 25mm oly prime.

Given the size of GX8 I will actually go for nikon D3300 + a 35mm prime. That will make more sense.

In reply to:

what_i_saw: Does this one at least focus on subject instead of the background like the old one did?

@Hibiki Rush You are not the only one. I had started a thread on this issue and the replies as to how to fix this were so technical that I bought an OMD E-M5. GR now collects dust. Which is a shame
This is the thread:

Funny how DPReview never came across this issue. Maybe they are technically sound enough to avoid this issue.

A desperate me too attempt. Nikon trying to protect it's turf and in process losing on both ends.

On a photo in the Ricoh GR Review Samples sample gallery (1 comment in total)

Is that distortion at the edges?
I am seeing stretched corners. I thought that 24mm LX3 lens does that. Or the ones wider than that.

In reply to:

what_i_saw: Can it be carried in jeans pocket?
That is crucial to my usage.

I today walked into the shop and tried a GRD IV.
It slipped easily in my Jeans Pocket.
My next camera will be Ricoh GR.

In reply to:

topstuff: It's all a bit "meh" is'nt it?

Is it just me or is it really hard to get enthusiastic about these shapeless black plastic lumps?

Good IQ is a given. But then you get great IQ with a NEX, or M4/3 or whatever.

Other manufacturers are starting to make cameras which are covetable. They are nice objects to own.

Canon don't seem to get this. All their products are so darn plasticky and dull and generally hard to love. At the leisure end of the market, this matters IMO.

I think what you really want to buy is some Jewellery. :-)
