Re: Ricoh GW-3 and GW-4

I tried the GW-3 on the Leica Q2.

At f/1.7 the whole image is very soft and unusable.

At f/5.6 and f/11 the image is sharp enough overall. The corners are a bit soft, and there is some comma distortion. There is some cyan drift. Overall, though it's not that bad, even if the converter and the original lens are very obviously mismatched.

I've not been able to try the convertor on the GR; DD had the camera, but the charger has "gone missing", and I'm waiting on a new one. ("Gone missing" is at least better than the way things "spontaneously break" when she has them.)

Thanks all for your help and encouragement!
