  • OK Let s see.. How many of you on this forum is willing to have the GR become larger, heavier, more expensive  and less sharp between at least F 2.8 and F 4.5 to get the gr with a f2 max aperture ...
  • How do you expect a 35mm sensor with a larger aperture to be the same form and small ? This is not a reasonable expectation Also I am curious :how big do you print to think you need a 35 mm sensor ? H
  • If this is the case , the difference between US price and europe prices is higher than usual ( even keeping in mind that the $700 price does not include sales taxes) as it is supposed to be sold...

  • yeah. This one is not going to stick. Too exaggerated to be remotely believable this one is funny. I suppose you think as yourself as fair and unbiased on this score ? H
  • Again your first statement is wrong. I suggest you google Contrast AF versus Phase detect AF. You should find some very educative information which would show that your first sentence is...

  • Yes I was adressing you. And how can you state as a fact that such cameras has horrible AF just based on specs sheet ? How about using the camera first ? on a tiny sensor camera AF is not an issue...

  • Comparing smartphones and their tiny sensors with cameras with much larger sensors when talking about AF reliabilty is like comparing apples and.. meat maybe. I wonder which cameras you actually...

  • Well at this point , this is anybody's guess but I suspect that the price difference was not the only reason the Nikon did not sell well. The slow AF, the poor IQ at full aperture , the clumsy ...
  • I had the Xr-7 for a while and I admit I was tempted by the XR-S .. do you remember that one . The first dslr camera with solar panel  :) :) Harold
  • Well you did not mention them so I thought it was better to clarify for readers of this post.. Ok , so what ?
  • Well you did not go back in time enough. Ricoh has been making cameras before you and I were born I think. They had several tlr and rangefinders models and their slr were not horrible, at least ...
  • Not sure why this is mentioned so regularly. I guess most people did not see his review where he "trashed" the GR (aps) well I agree with this even if you and lots of people seem to forget about ...
  • I am not sure there is much market for this. I am a black & white photographer mostly but I am not sure most people wants to carry another camera for the GR better to come up with a version of the ...
  • A second model with a 40mm equivalent and a 2X converter ( 80mm is ideal for portraits) would be my dream camera. along with the current model it would make a killer combination for travelling ...
  • It is indeed. up to 9 to 10 images in RAW in continuous mode versus three or 4 for the original GR This is one of the TWO reasons I think the GRII is better than the GR . The other one being the ...
  • I am not sure if this is just a typo or if you are a little bit confused about the 50mm Zeiss offering. The 2/50 mm planar is a typical planar design, a very good lens no doubt the 1.5/50 mm Sonnar ...
  • May I ask why ? It is unlikely there would be a  large price difference if any. I think the buffer size is a big advantage and justify by itself the price difference, if there is one Harold

    For those who live in Europe and are interested by GXR collection, I am selling mine . I have for instance : GXR body with an ACMAXX glass protector over the LCD( so that it does not get scratched) ...
