  • Yes, indeed I was thinking of the M line. of course I may be wrong, but I doubt the autofocus mechanism make the lenses much bigger, if at all? Not my experience. And how does the rangefinder ...
  • That was my entire point but maybe I made it sound more than that. ok, Iooks like, you -just like Gellings- believe that there isn’t much advanced sensor technology behind the “smallest body / ...
  • I know that. Maybe I am missing your point? They tried hard and got there, and the rest still aren't there, or maybe they just don't care about camera/lens size.
  • Leica is the only company where transformation from film to digital hasn't resulted with a camera size /lens diameter penalty. Pretty impressive, I say...And what is the most critical ingredient ...
  • Replied in Grain example
    p.s. If it’s not a lot of trouble for you, it would be great if you could share some examples.
  • I respect your particular taste in IQ. I presume you are after “very clean” noiseless shots. Indeed if this is your demand, a larger sensor camera is more suitable for your needs And here you ...
  • this got me confused, and I had to delete my previous post. If 2 stops is the effective advantage of the new presumed GRIII sensor, what should we make of the silly max iso rating on KP? The ...
  • And the sensor is 8 years old- if the link that I shared above is correct, D7000 is the first camera that had this sensor.

    mistake. sorry
  • about...1.75? :)
  • Funny you mentioned that. Because in that other thread I shared a shot from dpreview comparison tool to answer your question and dpreview picked iphone as a default camera. Anyone who enjoys ...
  • I'm afraid I don't. looks like 2 stops maybe? But first this: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/61176273 then this: https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/image-comparison?attr18=daylight&attr13_0=pen ...
  • No problem at all. It's sitting in a box with the rest of the parts. Rather sad actually.
  • just checked: sensor is soldered to the circuit board  therefore impossible to access to the underside of the sensor.

    the following is interesting. So after all there is a part number to look for. I’ll check my disassembled dead GR and will report back. http://theonlinephotographer.typepad.com/the_online_photograp ...
  • I already have one taken apart. I know for a fact that there is no brand name anywhere on the sensor but there may be some other identifiers (serial number or something). Will report back.
  • Replied in sony n/t
    Here is an article mentioning it. You may or may not consider it a credible source. http://www.photographydailynews.com/2013/04/ricoh-gr-2/
  • This is very different from my own experience. Oil is fine, but it really shouldn't be necessary. Was this camera serviced before? I wonder if you are using the right type of screwdriver? Are the ...
  • it's all about trade-offs. Fast lens + full frame: bye bye GR you're holding a Q or Sony RX1. Which is more important size or *extremely* low light? The compact film cameras with full size ...
  • Replied in sony n/t
    As far as I know camera manufacturers never officially acknowledge the source of their sensors. So if you're looking for a spec sheet or something, I'm afraid you won't find it online. All I can ...
