    When the adapter gets here, I'll compare the fields of view of the GR2 and the GX100 against what I see from a Canon 5D at various focal lengths. If its true that the GR2 (and maybe also the GR) show a slighter tighter EFOV, that would be good to know.

    3:2 on the GR2 crops the image vertically (top and bottom) so that it has the same width but a lesser height.

    Sean - this sums it up nicely. Actually from where I stand the 4x3 28mm FOV is great for a single focal length camera - it makes sense of what I was seeing with the images which never looked as "wide angle" as I'd been expecting. Good news to me.

    Happy Christmas to all on the list.

    Best.

    If you get time, try the comparisons at different focus distances. That may well have an effect.

    Cheers,
