    Thanks Keith!

    I tried that crop, it seemed a little too tight to my eye. But maybe I'll play with it some more.

    Nice, Godfrey

    This setting you've found with the verticals and diagonals is ideal for your subjects. You get some interesting people in there. Have you done a book of the communication series? any plans?

    OK - here is some old infrastructure - starting to move into water and electricity

    "Infrastructure #6"

    Thank you!

    I've been thinking of a book for this series. Have a couple of ideas .. different ways to present it. Stay tuned! ;-)

    I like this, but the bright lower left corner of the frame pulls my eye that way, it's a bit distracting and there's nothing in it that's adding much to the overall content. I'd do a little editing to decrease the distraction, one way or another.

    Can't resist one more, Godfrey. I'm using the A12 50 for the first time in a year! I love this camera. I've ordered the A12 28, and hope I'm in the same early batch as you from Popflash for the M-mount.

    Just trying out macro mode with the A12/50 unit. A purple oxalis blossom at ISO 3200. This little camera does remarkably well at high ISO.

    Re: Ricoh GXR - Show your images

    I managed to get out for a walk between showers today and took this shot of one of the old Wharton brothers studio buildings on Cayuga Lake. This was "Hollywood East" from 1914 -1920 and the site where most of the early silent films were made. Scheduled for restoration and right now the only residents are pigeons.



    One more from the lakeshore walk with the GXR, Driftwood & Geese:

    More very nice work, Carl. Thanks for posting them!

    It's very nice to see such good work coming out of the GXR community. This is one of the better kept 'secret' cameras of the past couple of years, it seems.

    Thank you Godfrey. It will be interesting to see how the GXR compares to the new Sony ‹bercamera nex7 with M mount MF lenses.

    It will, I agree. However, the GXR A12 Camera Mount has been designed specifically for Leica M bayonet lenses where the NEX 7 is best optimized for its own and Sony Alpha SLR lenses. There are a couple of things in the NEX 7 that advance the body over the GXR body, but I am not sure about that 24 Mpixel sensor and how well the shorter RF focal lengths will image on it. That's a lot of pixels to squeeze into APS-C format.

    The sample shots made with the Ricoh camera unit and ultra-wide lenses like the CV 12, 15, 21, etc look very good. Of course, it remains to be seen exactly what it does when the camera unit is in my hands. :-)

    Sold my DLux 5 to order this cam + 50mm and viewfinder. Also pre-ordered the M-mount. More than excited. Very curious to see the video quality on an M lens.

    I'm waiting to see that very thing myself! Video capture with the A12 50 and 28 is fine for casual shooting, but without focus and aperture control it's pretty limited.

    Re: Ricoh GXR - Show your images

    I've been playing with my Nex C3 today, and it's a super camera. I'm alternating use with the GXR.
    I was thinking about this conundrum with the concept of the Ricoh "Lensor". If Ricoh introduces an improved sensor, to get it, you need to buy a lens that you may already have (lets forget about the m-mount concept for the sake of argument)
    If you are a Nex 5 owner with your 14Mp and you lust after the new 16Mp piece in the latest Nex batch from Sony, you will have to buy a C3 or a 5n. But, you will have to take a kit lens with it, as I don't think you will be able right now to buy the body only.

    Looks like the same difference to me - this is the stuff that keeps E-Bay ticking!

    Thank you Keith and yes, 3200 is very impressive with the GXR. Your new A12/28 is looking very nice and sharp as well.

    Amen to that! I already have a closet full of gear ready to put up for sale. Hopefully the GXR will "stick" for awhile. The Nex 7 is tempting, but I have not been impressed with image quality coming off that 24 mp sensor.

    As I said in another thread, I'll be curious to see the NEX 7 when it arrives. But I suspect I'm sticking with the GXR + A12 Camera Mount until either I buy the M9 or Leica's upcoming LIVE camera ships. 12 Mpixel really is enough for 99% of everything I do, and the GXR is the best performing camera I've found in this size class overall.

    Re: Ricoh GXR - Show your images

    The usual beautiful and interesting images, Uwe. I like the colour you've shown over the past few days. Looks like Ricoh got the sensor right and with the in camera profiling it's going to be fun to use the m mount

    I have hard to think whether I buy the GXR with the M-Mount.

    I use standard Passport DNG profiles and use my own scripts :-)

    How did you get on with the EVF Uwe? Did it help focus confirmation for you.

    :-)

    Don't want to speak for him, but I think Uwe was really happy to find that it worked well and wanted to hang onto mine until he obtained one. ];-)

    I was ok using either the LCD or EVF ... They *are* quite different in use and I find them useful in different circumstances.

    Looking through my photos from yesterday again, I find that the lens I did miss accurate focus with on a couple of times was the Nokton 40mm, and each time it was when I was focusing and shooting at f/1.4. I credit this to two issues:

    - razor thin DoF at f/1.4
    - the Nokton 40 is slightly soft and its imaging low in contrast when wide open

    The latter is a significant issue with all TTL cameras: I often found with my SLR cameras that I would miss the focus more often with a low contrast lens that was slightly soft wide-open and a slower lens that was more contrasty/sharp wide open was easier to focus, regardless of focal length. For instance, my Pentax A28/2.8 was a very lovely lens at f/4-5.6 but was a bit soft and low contrast at f/2.8 ... it was hard to focus on the *ist DS and K10D. But the Pentax FA20-35/4 produced crisp and well-defined imaging even wide open at 20mm - I never missed the correct manual focus even at 20mm with it.

    Thanks Godfrey.

    I wonder if it might be possible to have a way of moving a spot focus target in the camera, and then have a focus confirmation indicator that shows when you have the manual focus correct at that point? Just wonder if that may work better (or worse) than by eye.

    Godfrey, I also meant to ask, did you find if the lens corrections work in RAW as well as JPG?

    There is no "focus confirmation" signal, nor is there a 'spot' focus feature, so I don't know how this might be implemented.

    The focus plane in the image field is indicated when focus assist is turned on by a degree of edge illumination, either against the full color image displayed (mode 1) or against a grayed out (high-pass filter) field (mode 2). Focus assist operates in both normal and enlarged viewing modes too.

    The focus assist modes make it very clear and easy to see where the focus plane is, although it can be somewhat difficult to see the image with one or the other depending on the scene type. That's why they disable both magnification and focus assist for easy viewing and framing when you half-press the shutter release, and it looks like there's an option to have pressing the shutter release auto-disable these focusing aids as well with the new firmware. (I think Uwe was looking for this but we didn't find it yesterday).

    According to the A12 Camera Mount brochure at
    http://www.ricoh.com/r_dc/gxr/unit5.html
    there is an asterisk note at the bottom of the "Bring classic lenses back to life with functions for peripheral-light and aberration correction" section that says, "* The monitor display and RAW images are not corrected." But it's not clear whether this is indicating all three of the items in this section ("Color Shading Correction", "Peripheral Illumination Correction", and "Distortion correction") or just "Distortion correction."

    The A12 28 and 50 mm EFL modules already support "Distortion correction" and that only operates on in-camera JPEG images. So the question is whether the color shading and peripheral illumination corrections are done prior to raw output or after. I didn't try either yesterday so have no further insight on this as yet.

    That said, looking at my raw captures with Elmarit 28, Nokton 40 and Skopar 50 lenses, none of them needed any of these corrections in any obvious way that I can see. I see the expected corner-edge light falloff with the Nokton at f/1.4-2 and normal progression of rendering qualities with all the lenses. Perhaps such corrections become more important with focal lengths in the 12 to 18 mm range, and specific lens designs.
