I got my GXR today. It took less then 10 minutes to set up and it's an amazing camera system. I'll post some photos as soon as I can.
Please continue to do what your doing.
ps... A great feature is that it shares the same battery as the X100.
How sweet it is....
Thanks Sue! I've seen you flickr photostream as well and loved it! You have some very interesting subjects I could only dream of. And we have the same taste for cameras. I was choosing between the X100, GXR, and K5 and ended up with the GXR in the end due to price difference. I couldn't afford the other two.
Don, please share your shots. What module are you using on the GXR? Have you tried using the X100 battery on the GXR? I was also thinking of using the X100 battery but hesitated coz I haven't heard any feedback from someone who've tried it.
Don bought a GF-1 and I bought a GF-1. Don bought a NEX and I bought a NEX. Don bought a X100 and I didn't buy an X100. Whew, but it was close. I hope to keep the new streak alive now that Don has a GXR but I must admit I'm awfully tempted by the GXR and M-mount module.
Are you getting the M-mount module, Don?
Well, once you get to know me you figure out that I'm 2cents short on patience. I put a fully charged X100 battery in the camera as I opened the box. It's the same exact battery.
My daughter went all out and got me the 28, 50 and 24-72. I won't use the zoom cause I'm a prime shooter. I'm prime age wise also.
So a new era begins for me. I am already inspired. I never even thought I'd want to sell the X100 but this camera put me over the edge.
I'm too old to use an eye level finder anymore. I just had enough of that the past 45 or so years.
Guess ya can tell I'm excited.... Guilty as charged!
Sorry to hear that you consider selling the X00, no looking through a true finder anymore?, but at a camera (screen) for composing and framing?
I'm a little shocked to hear that Don may sell the X100, but not at the reason. I feel very much the same way - on most of my cameras I only use a finder when I REALLY need to (ie, long lenses and occasionally if the sun is just TOOOOO bright, but that's rarely an issue with the bright rear screens they're making today). For the most part it feels really confining and constraining, both in terms of what I see and how I see.Sorry to hear that you consider selling the X00, no looking through a true finder anymore?, but at a camera (screen) for composing and framing?
