  • Replied in So what ?
    I am probably like Harold. I dislike opinions being presented as facts. We often talk and type "loosely" and others read exactly. Harold's excellent review on the GR is IMO testament to how much ...
  • Replied in So what ?
    I suspect that only a handful of people within Ricoh know the actual numbers on the GR sales/profits and it would be IMHO a relatively guarded secret - very much IMO. While it seems any company ...
  • +1 I like the consistent feel in processing too and that some are in other ratios. Good choice of views. Nicely done
  • So far my observation shows 50/50  :-P the GR III FN button could be assigned the task of focus lock I am sure. Its in about the same position, so there is no loss. Look at the rear images. http:// ...
  • I think this is very reasonable viewpoint. I can recall a few recent posted complaints about the rocker going and a few posters happy that is has gone. So there is no way to keep everyone happy. Fo ...
  • So, you tell me to not be serious then your are "seriously disappointed" all in the same reply ? ;-) ... Don't be so serious about the toggle. :-) I am sure there will be an option, maybe a better ...
  • This is a meaningless comment. Just because someone does not use a certain GR function does not make them an un-serious user. Everyone has their own way of working. A cheap compact or any ...
  • I've come across posters on other forums who are glad its gone as they constantly inadvertently pressed it. I've never used it, half press of the shutter button works for me and is quicker This ...
  • I still have both of mine. If I can find some enthusiasm I will dig them out, charge the batteries and do some side/sides
  • IMHO it was noticeable without a side by side. I don't think there was a lens change between the two as the accessory lenses were the same for both as was the hood/tube adapter. So I think ...
  • While overall I think the GR II APSC is the pick the GXR 28mm has a character of its own. The GXR BW are slightly more "grainy" but lovely smooth tonality. Its IMO no way one is better over the ...
  • I posted about this here and on the defunkt ricohforum some years ago and never got any replys to speak of. My GRD III was much sharper than the GRD IV. I never really knew why and tried a few ...
  • @Marlov - its discrimination, it is sinister.
    @biza43 - I am a man and I feel resentment at this program. Won't be buying Sony now.

  • @fuego6 its more sad that we are being homogenised into one "thing" rather than lots of different types of people. I don't want to forget about race or gender rather as the French say "Viva-la...

  • Harold, I also find the 40mm FOV equiv a very useful all rounder. I gelled with it using the Zuiko 40mm on the OM4.  If there were a GR with this I'd like a good aperture, f2 if possible. Additiona ...
  • LOL you are hard to please.. Ok, a better example is the Mk1 RX100. Versions made in Japan and and then versions made in China. there was a lot of discussion as to if the MIJ was better. So, ...
  • The easy examples is look to Leica. The film M models were produced even in different factories, as were the lenses. The M6 no doubt done in batches. I would say a GR2 re-run has already happened ...
  • I have that and more, I've been in the electronics and PC sector since 79. Your guessing and have no idea as do any of us, but its easily possible. I've seen it happen on other devices. I've seen ...
  • You could use with an education in manufacturing. When companies make things they order additional parts - always. These parts are often not used up in one run. Example: an order of say 1000 ...
