Looks like GT-2 can deliver a full APSC 60 mm and more!

Why would Ricoh who designed the camera not go with 60mm if they could? It sure doesn't make sense- unless they have some very good reasons not to allow it.

I trust they are making the right calls as probably people would be complaining about losing sharpness and what nots- which are trademarks of their performance and look with the GR. So yeah, I won't be doing this.

Fair enough, you might still want to leave the door open to the idea, without categorically ruling it out

If you're worried about contacts, I'm sure there will be dummy third party alternatives, such as the one NISI makes for GR3.

it could be less than perfect corners, but it could also be that they are not considering 60mm as a "valid" focal length. I'm not aware of any 60mm equiv lenses on film or digital.

I agree that would be a strange decision, but wouldn't be their first:

Ricoh is not allowing 4:3 aspect ratio for no apparent reason, neither.

Your explanation for the "wide" label appearing was interesting: maybe it is a firmware glitch.

Maybe my excitement was premature, we shall see.
