Re: Any users of older Ricoh digicams? R8

Recently bought a used R8 mostly out of curiousity. I have never had one or the R10 before. Of the the three with this zoom it seems like the R8 have best image quality.

I didn't expect a lot however knowing about the NR and no PD AF compared to R3 and R4.

The AF can be a little slow but for most of the time not too bad. The image quality with sharpening set to Soft is ok though not quite on par with the R3 and probably not the R5 either.

Sometimes the images gets a somewhat

smudged look like the ground in these below.

I'll update the firmware from 1.20 to 1.28 and bring it with me for a little longer walk
