  • I travel with primes, almost exclusively. In fact I only use one prime. 95% of my photos are made with a 28mm f2.8 equivalent lens, in the form of a Ricoh GRII. It’s all I need for most trips and ...
  • Created discussion thread Your vote :-)
    If this post breaks the forum rules, please disregard and, if necessary, delete. I'm participating in a photo challenge in my home country (Belgium). If you like my photo and are up for it: please ...
  • - X100-style body, but WR and with a fully-articulating screen - same AF-system, processor, sensor as the X-T3 - EVF same size/quality as X-T2/3 - IBIS - remove video function - fixed 18mm f1.4 ...
  • If they actually release that 35mm (28mm FF equiv) at a good price and if it's small enough, I might be very tempted by the GFX 50R. I was considering a Leica Q, but this Fuji MF option would be ...
  • I can't look into the future, but I suppose Ricoh will stick to APS-C, if only for size/weight's sake. I'm guessing they'll put a 24mp sensor inside with faster AF and processing and better ...
  • Is there any chance a GF 35mm f2.8 would be announced too soon? This was rumored by Patrick at FR sometime in April if I remember correctly, to be announced sometime mid-2018.
  • I shoot various cameras: - Ricoh (the GRII is my main camera nowadays) - Leica (X-E Typ 102) - Fuji (X-T20; I also still own an X-A1 which was my first Fuji) - Sony (RX100 IV, although this is ...
  • While the Z cameras seem interesting, I notice there's no 28mm on the Z lens roadmap. Hence, I won't be buying into this system.
  • True. I only use the 50-230 for wildlife and not much else. During a recent trip to Sri Lanka I shot the whole two weeks with my Ricoh (18mm fixed lens), except for some wildlife in the nature ...
  • Thanks, all. So far the experience with the X-E is quite mixed. The IQ is certainly there, but I can't seem to get along with the AF. I don't need lightning fast AF, but the hunting is putting me ...
  • Thanks :-) The way I see it, is that with this setup I'd be ready for lowlight situations, landscape, street, portraits, wildlife,... so for a 3-lens kit to an unknown destination it's perfect (for ...
  • For me it would probably be: 16 f1.4 35 f1.4 50-230 Recently I've been traveling with one camera/one lens though, in the form of the Ricoh GRII. I'm currently planning a trip to Beijing and the ...
  • Created discussion thread My first Leica...
    Dear all, I bit the bullet and finally bought my first Leica today! I went for a mint X-E Typ 102 which was available for a song. I'll most likely add the EVF very soon. My current camera is a ...
  • Replied in X Vario
    Are there specific issues to check with used X Vario's? Is it prone to any specific problems? I handled this specific unit in the shop and it seems to work properly, as does the EVF.
  • Replied in X Vario
    So the one I’m looking at falls right in that range, but includes the EVF. I suppose that’s a pretty good deal then...
  • Created discussion thread X Vario
    I have the option of buying a used X Vario  with the EVF2 for around 1000 EUR. Would that be a good price? I’ve tried the camera and it seems to work perfectly. Cosmetically it’s in great shape ...
  • Thanks a lot to all for chiming in. I’ve decided not to do it though. I don’t think the M system is right for me. I couldn’t live with just manual focus I’m afraid. Given it a lot of thought ...
  • Created discussion thread Question about M9 sensor issue
    I have the opportunity to get a used M9 in great condition with the sensor replaced. About that sensor issue: has anyone had any issues with it after the replacement? In other words: have there ...
  • My wishlist for the GRIII, or whatever its name will be: - 24MP - better high ISO performance - faster operation (startup time, AF,...) - WR would be nice - if they can make it an f2 or f2.4 lens ...
