Sony RX1R II + Ricoh GW3 wide angle converter good?
1

Anyone used this combo? How good is it compared to a modified Sony SEL075UWC converter?

The Ricoh seems a bit cheaper and also less of a hassle as it does not need to be modified. It's also a bit lighter (hopefully puts less stress on the lens; though it fits on the front filter as opposed to the bayonet).

I read the Ricoh GW3 works well on RX1 and RX1R but very few people have commented on it and the Sony RX1RII. It sounds like it might not work as well on the higher resolution sensor.

Just wonder how good the optical quality is compared the Sony SEL075UWC on the RX1RII? The Sony converter is designed for a full-frame lens (albeit 28mm) so I wonder if it's the better option?

Thanks.
