  • I have a GR II and X100 because they are quite different. I use the GR II with wide angle converter for landscape and like to have the 18mm and 23mm together for the street. For pictures where I ...
  • Yes, it's pretty good. I only experienced that the GR sensor produces some false colors at ISO 6400, like it's visible in the darker areas of your sample. In this case it's not really bothersome, ...
  • Yeah, low light is good, but that's what I would expect from a APS-C sensor. Actually if you keep in mind that it's a 2015 camera and the low light performance is only equal to the 2011 D5100, then ...
  • Why you came in then? Hopes still not entirely dead?
  • The Fujifilm X100 and Fujinon 23mm f2 give me the same blurriness wide open at close focus distance. Now I finally understand that this isn't a flaw, it's a feature! Enlightening!

  • Definitely get a GR II. I don't think GR III won't be announced very soon. And I don't think Ricoh will make a lot of changes that new R&D ressources, like EVF or significantly different body design. ...
  • Blurry is the new sharp ;)

  • @ tkbslc: I think it's clear what I mean without calculating the exact focal lengths for Canon.

    @ ProfHankD: I didn't compare Canon M with Sony E. But I don't see Sony making a lot of APS-C lenses...

  • The Canon EOS M system doesn't have a lot of lenses, but the few they have are great. Especially the 22mm f2 and the 11-22mm. If they would give us a compact 35mm and 50mm, I would really consider...

  • Commented on article Fujifilm X-E3 Review

    For moving the focus point in EVF or liveview mode the touchscreen is as laggy as the one of the Sony A6500.
    But here you don't mention it and say it's responsive. That's just not true for moving...

  • It depends of what you are doing with your Ricoh GR. I think you won't use it very often for street photography. But it's great for landscape and your next sightseeing tour. And I can't think of ...
  • Commented on article Fujifilm X-E3 Review

    Did I tried a pre-production camera? I tested the X-E3 last week and found the touchscreen absolutly laggy and not responsive. The touch gesture and reaction of the camera felt often disconnected,...

  • The best idea is definitly the GH-3 adapter with UV filter or convertion lens attached. That will prevent dust getting inside through the lens. Dust can enter the camera through the dials as well, ...
  • So far, I couln't find full res image samples of the Ricoh GR with GW-3 wide angle converter. So here they are with a short analysis. All processed with LR 5.7 - standard setting with ...
  • Added 9 photos to their gallery

  • Tried both: Used the vacuum cleaner around the lens barrel. After that the dust spot was still there and I got two more, which I can see from f/11 onwards. Don't ask me how this can happen. Maybe ...
  • First sentence: "Canon has hit two couple major production milestones today."
    But it seems more like a suggestion of the author, because they released the statement at the same day.

  • "[...] F2.8-5.6 [...] might sound like a big step down [...], the practical differences is smaller than this would seem to imply. [...] F4.5-9.0 equivalent range isn't as different from the...

  • Let's see how good this lens can perform. So far Canon's build in lenses haven't been always superb. But a superb lens is what this camera needs to justify the slow aperture.

  • Hi, I have a problem with the snap focus. When I move the AF/AE point, the snap focus doesn't work anymore. To make it work again, I have to reset the focus point (press DISP/Back button twice). It ...
