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

I am pretty sure Ricoh must have had good reasons not to do it.

If Ricoh is not allowing 60mm I am sure their engineers have a good reason for that choice and it's not done on a whim

#2

that doesn't strike me as a good idea since they who know better have decided against it.

#3

it seems straightforward there's an image quality issue. Why would Ricoh who designed the camera not go with 60mm if they could?

#4

...they have some very good reasons not to allow it.

#5

why would Ricoh not do it? They aren’t stupid That’s why I am ruling it out

#6

Ricoh knows better and they thought it wasn’t worth doing

#7

I am questioning the notion or implication that somehow we are cleverer than Ricoh and they didn't have good reasons not to do this officially.

#8

I am only staying what I said- Ricoh knows better in terms of why they didn't do it and they just have a good reason.

If it cannot support 3:2 and 60mm, does the image circle cover 1:1 or 2:1 ?

I did not see any geometric corrections being applied when I was tinkering with the adapter.

May ask where you had the chance to try the gt-2?

Still waiting for the GT-2

All I've been able to do is experiment with the cam operated switch inside the GA-2 - this allows the camera to distinguish between the GT-2 and GW-4 or neither.
