  • Replied in Ricoh GR3
    I spent awhile 8-months(?) with a GR and a Fuji X100V.  I have zero things bad to say about the X100V, but in the end it just doesn't have the same work-flow and convenience of the GR.  Wouldn't ...
  • And the reason you don't use a filter before you get dust is...?
  • Ebay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Leather-Camera-Case-Bag-Cover-Pouch-and-Strap-for-Ricoh-GR-II-or-GR-Black-/165388895548?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0 Amazon ...
  • I've had a GRii, and two Griii's (one was stolen) for over ten years. I keep the camera in a simple case when transporting it, it stays out when I'm using it, then goes back in the case when done. ...
  • I know you're a supporter, as am I.  But my point was that dust isn't just a GR problem and that's easily proved - pick a camera, add dust and hit search.
  • Except that it actually did happen. I've taken apart a GRii and the video (actually linked in the thread) shows all you need is the proper screwdriver and a pair of tweezers. Given the need to bend ...
  • Funny how a simple search will disprove your assumptions and yet you didn't bother. https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/16827966
  • I understand the frustration, but to be fair, there is a difference between saying "no big deal" and "it's never happened to me, so I don't worry about it". Also (and this isn't directed at you ...
  • I love snap focus too, but changing the focus distance was always a bit slow for me using a dial. So now I do this: FN button mapped to switch to Manual focus LCD mapped to "touch to focus". Anytim ...
  • Considering that the GRiii was the best selling model in the GR line, and the fact that they just introduced the 40mm version, and the fact that it has a great form factor, I'm not sure I would agree.

  • It's pretty amazing.
  • Ok, so here I am 10-months later and the short story is the X100V will be on Ebay shortly. I gave it a good effort, and I can't deny it's a brilliant camera, and also in a few ways it out performs ...
  • Replied in Ricoh GR IIIx
    You won't regret it.  I have both the GRiii and the X100V.  The Fuji is a great camera,, but it's simply not a  GRiii.  I've had them both for about a year (I think) and the GRiii is the camera I ...
  • I own both cameras and while there are differences between them, image quality isn't one of the issues.

  • After almost a year with the new GR and the X100V, I'm about to put the Fuji up for sale.  Absolutely wonderful camera but I can't get past how much more I like using the GR.  So no need for it to ...
