    The New Ricoh GR Announced and Available for Pre-Order ($797 at B&H)

    +1. I hope more people ahead of me cancel their preorder so that I can get mine faster. Yes it seems the RAW color issue has been overblown. Although DNG is an open format, it has a room for vendor specific extensions. Yes Adobe has to support Ricoh GR DNG officially to see full potential of GR...

    If you could only have 1 camera (inc lens) What would it be?

    +1. GF1 20mm works. 14mm 2.5 isn't bad either. E-PM2 is darn good for high ISO. DP1x... only if I carry a tripod... nah Hopefully GR fits the bill.

    Egad! OVF for Nikon A Nearly $400!

    Sigma VF-11 is for 3:2 ratio. I got one at $80 :)

    Micro 4/3 EPM2/EPL5 + 14mm/2.5 vs Nikon A vs Ricoh GR

    At least it's sorta inner focus mechanism. The barrel doesn't change the length once powered up.

    Ricoh Do I really need the new Ricoh GR?

    I have LX7 and E-PM2 45mm and 7.5mm. Just placed GR preorder. Feeling good~ GR + LX7 E-PM2 + GR LX7 + E-PM2

    Google Translate Check out the link. The simple lens design helped the dual motors design feasible. The retracting lens doesn't look bad at all, and it has the auto lens cap. Yeah compact or no compact... that's the question!!!

    @Ghosthunter Prolly that won't happen in near future. Ricoh GR has done special optimization to improve corner sharpness while minimizing lens size. Such design is not possible in a system camera.

    The New Ricoh GR Announced and Available for Pre-Order ($797 at B&H)

    I like 28mm FOV as much as 35mm FOV. X100S needs a 28mm wide adapter to achieve that, and I'm glad to hear about Ricoh GR's "10MP 35mm equivalent crop mode" feature. Would its LCD display the cropped FOV on its full screen? Would it produce cropped RAW/JPEG?

    The 28mm equivalent FOV is great for snapshot/street photography, and the smaller is easier to carry around. Ricoh GR is lighter than Lumix GF3 body only. The Lumix 14mm 2.5 is darn cheap and EPM2's dynamic range is pretty good. But the leaf shutter compact is definitely enticing to me nowadays.

    Thanks. Fear of missing out was greater than fear of losing out.
