    Of course I had my A12 28 with me but it took me a bit to remember how to use it! Btw, I've purchased a v2 35mm Summicron on eBay. May need a room to rent when the boss finds out!

    I've already spoken to Youxin Ye and he can fix it. Will send it off tomorrow. I've rented the Zeiss 35/2 and 50/2 this week for fathers day today.

    Re: Ricoh GXR - Show your images

    Hello, all.

    By way of introduction: I've been a Pentaxian for four-or-five years, and last year I bought a Nex-5. I wanted to have a smaller kit, and wanted to play with new toys from eBay. All was well with an old Elmar 3.5/50 and an Elmar 4/90, but then Godfrey came to visit and introduced me to the GXR, and, worse, to the magenta cast that wide angle lenses produce on the Nex.

    So Darth Godfrey turned me to the Dark Side, and here I am! Still a Pentaxian, though....

    Here's a recent shot:

    Yes indeed, Ago was a brilliant rider. There were racing MV Agusta fours and triples, depending on the years—all of them quite lovely.

    Ah for the days of Count Domenico Agusta and his passion for the Gran Prix! That's an age gone past now.

    Fed up with waiting for the A16 M-mount

    . . . so I bought this.

    It is full frame and "dressed up" for sneaky street photography . Works like a charm, buttery smooth, and has the extra Ricoh touch of a fast lever wind on the bottom.

    Taken with my new A16 zoom (Michiel noticed )
    This is a nice set up. The sensor is what you would expect - very good indeed, a Nex5n sensor without the AA filter.
    Zoom is large, but light and balances well with the camera. Haven't had too much time with it, but will soon change that

    I think an A16 M-Mount will most likely appear in fall. They obviously have the sensor and the the know-how. The only question is will they skip this sensor and go to the next generation (whatever that may be)

    Depending on personal circumstances I would hold off for now on the A12 - I think news will start leaking in the next couple of months.

    thanks for thoughts. Have been thinking in the same direction. And all the others are out with 16Mp, so they can't risk waiting too long, or they might be pushing us/costumers over to the enemy’s.

    An A16 Camera Mount would be nice, but I still find photos with the A12 Camera Mount to be as good or better than anything I see out of its competition in the TTL electronic class with my M-bayonet lens kit, so no risk of me going anywhere else for the present. And of course, I've already succumbed to buying the M9, which seems to be what I pick up most by default these days.

    I do want a Leica X2 for other reasons, however, so Magpie Syndrome continues. :-)

    an M mount 16Mp should be a substitute for a M9, and yes the 28mm already delivers fantastic pictures and colours, but I'll try to be patient for another few months.

    Well, yes and no.

    - Totally different focusing system and viewfinder feel, as well as overall ergonomics and feature set.

    - The sensor format differences causes photos made with the two cameras, despite using the same lens, to have a different feel entirely due to the differences in FoV-DoF coupling.

    - The cameras respond differently too - different shutter lag, different exposure to ready cycle, etc.

    I find them to be complementary, but not substitutable. Of course, if I couldn't afford the M9, I was quite happy shooting with the GXR-M for nearly everything. :-)

    Yes I know, forgot to write, that it for me would be a substitute, while having a M6, yes I really liked the M-doing of things and enjoyed doing presetting, and would love that M-feeling again, and the GXR don't give it, but one can live with it, although it doesn't come near the M-feeling, but its smaller, light, the shutter is almost silent, and it seems to be almost invisible too, and are able to do the presetting too...and I do take the most pictures with it, and a lot easier to carry than my D800E, and perhaps that +4Mp woun't give a mighty difference...but patience one should be a healthy thing..

    The 24MP sensor from the D3X and A900 which rumours have planted in the D600 that may or may not be launched would be nice. The first really compact 35mm digital camera?

    Lovely, Michiel! :-)

    Yes, we should all shoot on contentedly with the excellent equipment we already have.

    I'm off to the Sierra foothills today ... will bring either the Leica or the Ricoh, haven't decided yet. Either one will make great photos.

    Morning Godfrey,

    Look forward to seeing your Sierra shots. BTW, I was able to handle my first M9 last week while in Barcelona (story and photos on my blog) and I can tell you I'm even more excited to be shooting with my Ricoh GXR for travel. As I felt the M9 was too big for my needs.

    I'm sure I'd really really like the images from the camera, but I felt it was a bit big for my needs.

    Yes, the M9 is a bit bulky compared to the GXR. Different shooting experience. I go back and forth.

    Aha contentedly it is. I was in doubt but to lazy to look it up. :-)
    And thanks again Godfrey! I am concentrating a bit on landscapes lately.

    BTW Can't you take both with you? You can slide that Ricoh in your pocket :-) and use the same lenses. Would be nice to see some new input from you here.
    Although I usually take the NEX-7 and the Ricoh together with be, but it is a bit confusing. Mostly I end up using one of them instead of switching all the time.

    Have a nice trip.

    I agree with that. My Nex 7 has gone, I could not get on with the interface. Back to the GXR, and it seems like a breath of fresh air.

    Here is another from the A16 zoom. I like it a lot, but remember, I am a zoomer

    @ Keith; I try not to use the Sony interface :-)

    @ Paul; That second one almost looks like jugendstil metal forging. Very nice!

    Jugendstil = Art Nouveau. Had to look it up! How nice when Nature imitates Art...

    Thank you!

    We had our own Manx Art Nouveau designer in Archibald Knox http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Archibald_Knox_(designer)

    His designs still appear in lots of jewellery, but I don't find his work as delicate or appealing as that of Mackintosh.

    Keith: I like the composition and rendering of the 'Picasso', but I *don't* like the way that woman is looking at me!

    The sculpture is intriguing!

    Re: Ricoh GXR - Show your images

    Hi, due to work and family, I have not been using the GXR for almost half a year. Really miss it. I do come here frequently to admire the nice photos shared. Finally managed to find sometime over the weekend to do some shooting Sharing a few here:










    Thanks for viewing. Cheers!

    Duane; Interesting picture and nice light too, but where are his legs? :-)

    BTW, you are around!

    You I did not even notice the leg part until I got home and my wife said the same thing!!!! I took several photos sitting behind this couple. But there was a parasail in the background confusing the image. I thought this was the better one until the leg part was mentioned.

    Yes I do get around. I work a 7 on 7 off schedule as a pilot and the aircraft I fly can go from Tokyo to NY non-stop.

    It makes the photograph even more interesting! His legs are probably (I hope so for the guy) on the railing.

    Adventurous profession and very nice for photography with all those different locations, if you can find the time for it. With that amount of traveling, I can imagine that the Ricoh is a very nice compact quality camera to take along.

    I have another picture of the two and both their legs aren't showing as they're up on the railing.

    The Ricoh GXR has been perfect for traveling. A couple weeks ago I was in Barcelona and had a chance to visit a local photo shop that carried Leicas. It was the first time I have ever handled a Leica body, the M9.

    From the photos online it would appear to be small. Well, I found it large in comparison to the GXR. It made me feel even better about my current tool of choice to take pictures with.

    However, I do like the Leica glass as the Summicron's, for example, are very compact.

    I did an interview which is posted on the Ricoh Forums where I expound at bit on my experience with the Ricoh GXR and photography.

    Nice interview. :-) And I like the photo with just one pair of legs ... it adds something.

    The M9 is very small for a full frame camera, and in physical size remarkably similar to the GXR-M with comparable FoV/speed lens and viewfinder fitted. Put up against the FF DSLRs and it's no contest as to what's smaller. The nicest thing about the M9 is that it has few protrusions other than the lens so it slips more easily into a slim bag without catching on stuff, unlike both the DSLR and the GXR-M with viewfinder. But it is a larger, heavier camera than that GXR and feels it. Both feel tight and dense, the M9 more so.

    I like 'em both. :-)

    Indeed a nice interview, Duane.
    Very personal and it is a big compliment for Ricoh as well. It is not just this camera but also all those good MF lenses - I have almost no AF lenses -which make you far more aware of what you're doing before you take the shot. At least that is my experience.
    Besides the great files the Ricoh produces, of course. I am glad Keith forced me to buy one.

    Very rarely I need, for my style photography, a fast AF lens, but there are situations I missed shots, because manual focussing was to slow.

    This summer the Tour de France is passing by near our village in France, where I live mainly at the moment (just retired from teaching art school). How will I get good shots from those seconds of action?
    Pre focussing or buy a AF zoom for my NEX-7. Well I'll see.

    Thanks for the link.

    I think the "missing legs" image of Duane's is a classic! It grabs your attention immediately. Love to see one with both sets of legs missing.

    Here is a mess of tracks, wires, and poles just feet from the Art Gallery of Ontario. GXR with the lovely A16 zoom.
