  • You are welcome. If its not there, its not intended. Humor and sarcasm aren't always the same or hand in hand. The fact that there is even a GR refresh now in 2019 considering the cameras in phones ...
  • This is my belated, your satire about the GR III is overdone alert. It was necessary.
  • Yeah, and the guy who bought us the GRD 1 though 4, the GR AND GR II. So he has my respect. Kudos to Ricoh, about the only company to give us access to such an esteemed person. I think the look ...
  • this may appear in a later firmware ! could still be applied to a FN button or user can alternatively use half press shutter or make use of snap instead. A smart user finds work arounds for a minor ...
  • Point #3 in your positives is an important improvement. I've missed some opportunities due inferior focus of the GR/GRII. A well reasoned idea, compared to some who have already dammed it sight ...
  • I will be upgrading from the previous models. There is so much to like, newer sensor with more pixels and better IQ, smaller package now that the under powered flash is gone. I will enjoy trying ...
  • I think you are correct in that, it will be achievable another way. I am glad to read someone is optimistic. There is a lot to like with the GR III. An updated sensor for starters. You seem like ...
  • Haha, LOL, :-) ,so, who are you to tell me I have no right to reply and to leave it ?. IMO you are patently wrong about the menus. so It has additional items, that's about it. The Sigma is a ...
  • Seriously?, ghastly?  in my opinion they are well laid out and very readable and I've see many examples of them.
  • I do, I have to allow for such day / date situations for my job What a good time to do it, they will be at home to hear all about it and not be occupied with work
  • No, barrel distortion, flatness of field, chromatic abberation and about 50 other parameters is better. There is more to a good lens design than sharpness.
  • Hi Sal, Looking at official specs here, they mention P-TTL http://news.ricoh-imaging.co.jp/rim_info2/2018/20180925_026135.html HotshoeCompatible with P-TTL Auto Flash , maybe the P means "Pentax" TTL ?
  • I think he is referring to the cameras signal processor. This is often the device blamed for "baked RAW" and other things going on in camera before the file gets written to the SD card.  ...
  • I won't care about the debate. My own prints will decide for me. This reads like a comment from a forum troll.
  • Replied in Improvements
    I used to have a brain fog that hindered me switching cameras. Not any more, I fixed it and am sharper and quicker than I was 15 years ago. Switching cameras and methods not an issue for me anymore. ...
  • No fluke I can assure you. Optical engineers now have computer modelling that enables them to determine what aberrations they face in the design and can tweak without having to make a lens like ...
  • Replied in Improvements
    wrong, you wont have to "dive". The rotary encoder can have multiple functions and has the D-Pad incorporated as part of it. Add to this push and hold or push and rotate and you have more not less ...
  • Replied in Improvements
    Those controls that were removed have been replaced with other controls that lead to other ways of working and gains in ways of working.
  • Replied in Improvements
    I agree it will have been changed for sure, but It will have been smartened up, this is generation 7 of a long running design. It will only have been improved. Of course there are those that ...
  • I don't have a XF10 but the samples I've seen, I agree with you. Its not as good as the GR images for sharpness but more than acceptable to me on screen. I'd be interested to hear of opinions on ...
