Re: Leaving the Fold

Interesting post.

I have owned the Sigma DP2s until a few month ago, and recently got the Ricoh GXR with the A12 50mm Macro.

One thing that strikes me when comparing the two is the physical feel--the Sigma always felt so cheap to me, a lot of plastic and very light. I shoot a lot of film, so I am used to more weight and a solid feel. I would not want to go back to the Sigma... through my extensive use of film, I am quite accustomed now to take my time when I shoot. I can transfer that to the Ricoh easily.

Why someone prefers a camera over another is a very personal issue; to me, the Ricoh GXR has been the best digital camera I have owned so far.
