    Ricoh GR III rumor

    Fuji XE3 Arrived!

    Hope you don't mind if I take this topic a little sideways I've got an X-E3 with the 35mm f2 as a backup to my Ricoh GR. The first batch of 30 odd images are mostly disappointingly missed focus. A few hit the mark. I am unsure if its operator error as the 50mm equiv would demand more care than...

    Fuji Fuji X70

    I have been a long time GR user, I still have them all and am very familiar with their use and shortcomings. edit: in the last several months I have sold off most and use the GR almost exclusively. I am surprised by the negative reactions to the X70. The Coolpix A is essentially gone and other...

    Micro 4/3 No Love for the New Panasonic GM5?

    I'm considering a GM5 & Panasonic 42.5 to get the IOS. The Pana 42.5 rather than the Zuiko 45mm. This kit teamed with my Ricoh GR to give me a 28mm/85mm pair. Might shove a 25mm (50mm equivalent) in the middle later. Its time I tried some 85mm to get me out of the 28mm only groove.

    Coolpix A back for $299.

    Its very annoying, I'd like to try one but not at AU prices.

    Ricoh The Ricoh GR image thread

    Thank you for this. To me the GR is not only a street camera but a travel light, travel far camera.

    Fuji X-T1 GAS attack #2 (the me also thread)

    Cheers thanks. While there is an offer, I mainly try to use out of camera jpgs but will post process if it warrants it. Are the results with Lightroom considered good these days? While I have other options its the only RAW processor that seem to gel with me.

    Fuji X-T1 GAS attack #2 (the me also thread)

    I did not jump on board the initial flurry of excitement when the X-T1 was released some years ago. I checked one out at a dealers many months back. It was always a bit highly priced for me. I did sometime ago dump all my m43 gear on the used market and never replaced it with anything. My Ricoh...

    GASoholics - what is your number??

    Right now I am a bit more concerned with how many I've KEPT rather than owned. There are a few that hold a rather silly keepsake, souvenir or memento status. Some have a certain IQ so get kept as I'd have regrets if i sold them. They are worsen the total number.

    Ricoh New GR Apparently

    But the GR II is not on their Ricoh store at all. I think they must have stock of GXR lenses then as they did pull down the Sigma DP1M and DP3 when stock ran out.

    Ricoh New GR Apparently

    Thank you for the update. Looks like they dropped it from $950 when I inquired last week. Its all a bit confusing as I was on their Ricoh shop expecting it to appear there Seems the GR is more Pentax now than Ricoh?

    Ricoh New GR Apparently

    I am quite disappointed that the Australian price is AU$950 which while inline with the US price of about $695 with the current exchange rate but it is still $100 more than the GR when it was first released. I bet the price won't shift if the exchange rate gets better. Right now as much as I am...

    Sigma Advice please on a DP.

    Good move Bill, I did email the AU distributor and they said there are no more DP1M for sale, and I suspect the same for the DP3. The DP2M would be the last of them here new and for once we had the best price in the world on them.

    Sigma Advice please on a DP.

    The original DP2 will often yield a look and images have what is described as a "pop" to them, its sometimes 3D. The clarity and definition at base ISO is superb. The Merrill loses some of this look at high res but the detail is immense. I think some of the DP2 look is garnered back in LOW and...
