  • Thank you for the information. Unfortunately that removes the M10 from my short list for my investment into a new camera in the foreseeable future. For me a proper Android app enabling wireless ...
  • I have the same Elmarit 90mm/F2.8 but from 1972. This version has been produced from 1959 to 1974: All from the Ricoh GXR-M. The last one is slightly cropped.
  • Well, I wouldn't compare the Ricoh with the Epson RD1 which was basically the Voigtänder Bessa R rangefinder camera with a digital sensor similar to the Leica M8, whereas the Ricoh is a true MILC ...
  • Well, our Ricoh GXR-M comes already very close. I'm not too sure whether I would change at all if somebody would come up with something like the Ricoh with FF sensor. But I don't think that it ...
  • Tom, it's really interesting that you will not be tired to moan about the GXR-M's EVF. I see it exactly the oppisite way and prefer the tiltable and removable EVF of the Ricoh over any fixed one ...
  • Indeed, hence there is no danger of a licence fee.  It's like M42 or M39, etc.
  • Don't forget that you have to buy the 15mm finder extra for the usage on your M6 when you insist on the mk3 version. Older versions come in a package where the finder is included and can be found ...
  • Maybe my little 200mm lens comparison is of a little help for you: http://forum.mflenses.com/200mm-lens-comparison-leitz-minolta-topcon-pentax-t76831.html Interestingly none of the tested prime ...
  • The latest and best MD III version introduced 1981 comes with a dedicated 1:1 tube and metal clip-in hood. It's indeed best in class and beats and all other macro lenses from that time incl. the ...
  • Please refer to this list: http://minolta.eazypix.de/lenses/ Lens classification on bottom page. My MD III version is marked as plain "MD" without "Rokkor". Sometimes it helps also to put a lens on ...
  • I second this recommendation. It's indeed an excellent lens, particularly the latest version (MD III). Example at nearly 1:1 magnification shot with Ricoh GXR-M:
  • I have a lot of cheap Russian LTM lenses as well. It's fun to use them on the GXR-M and I'm quite happy with the results. Example from the Industar-22 50mm/F3.5 and Ricoh GXR-M:
  • I have almost the whole range of the Voigtländer LTM screw mount lenses which have been basically developed for their Bessa film cameras and used them also sucessfully on my Lumix MFT GF1camera, ...
  • Well, I'm still very happy with my GXR-M for my RF lenses and would not pay apprx. 2500 Euro just to get more pixels and a higher resolution EVF. Used GXR-Ms are available for apprx. 500 Euro, ...
  • I did a comparison of 8 different fast 50mm lenses some time ago: http://forum.mflenses.com/comparison-of-fast-50s-t76796.html It includes also Minolta 50/1.4 and Jupiter-3 among some others. May ...
  • I have as well a rather complete set of rangefinder lenses mainly from Leitz/Leica, Voigtländer and other brands from 12 to 280mm. When I switched to digital some years ago I didn't want to spend ...
  • What's your intention? Very large prints? How often do you need that? Otherwise the M10 may deliver a sharper picture than the GFX, depending on the used lens. Only the resolution is much higher on ...
  • Although I'm living next Vienna I bought all my used Leica lenses from their online-shop: http://www.leicashop.com/vintage_en/leica.html Very reliable and you get what you see. So far I didn't have ...
  • My recommendation is the Tamron SP 90mm/F2.8 in any version. I have the version 272E. It's stunningly sharp even wide open and fantastic for macro up to 1:1 without extra extender.
  • Either you are lucky or any pre-owner has already CLA'd your lenses. E.g. my Meyer Orestor 100/2.8 is totally stuck wide open and this problem has been reported by several other users as well. ...
