To show the wonderful ISO performance.
Yes, that glaring thing is the moon, not the sun ;-)
I tried some overexposure here.

Great series Chris. Do you happen to add some grain in PP sometimes ?

I bet it is, I never liked 500px. I prefer flickr for that sense.

Thanks Nick, depending on the shot yes i do add some grain to spice things up a bit, but usually when im shooting at iso100 or so. But if you are wondering about the shot of the lady on the street for example, no, thats the GR sensor grain/noise. which i love dearly. I believe that was shot at 3200 or something.

Every time I come back to this thread I wonder why I bother taking any other cam out with me much of the time.

That's what a friend of mine is saying all the time. He has a D800 and barely uses it compared to his GR. Great camera, just ordered the GW-3 for it!

Going to be doing an extensive bit of travel later this year and made an decision I never thought I'd make. The last time I was traveling abroad for a year and a half and along with me I had my GRDIII and my K-7 with an M-50mm 1.4. Very glad I had the larger cam but used it very infrequently for simple size/weight/conspicuousness concerns which were real.
So, this time around, the GR will be coming with along with my film MX and a couple lighter lenses. Less weight than last time, less worry over all, less of a target over all, more discreet, and only one tiny battery to worry about charging. That's the combo that's been leaving the house with me for the past couple months and it is entirely liberating. It all fits in a very small shoulder bag.

The image quality of the GR seems to be pretty awesome. I love that it's so compact too...

For someone that does not enjoy the 28mm focal length as much as others.... do you wish it had a 50mm FOV lens instead? That is my only hesitation of buying this camera... the fact it could be too wide...

It's that feeling exactly, that had me bring my K-7 and fast fifty (see above) with me traveling, but I quickly found the GRDIII's 28mm simply made me change and grow in my photography and I wound up not using the K7 much after a bit. The two never replaced one another, but I think if you get to know 28mm on a different level, without the ability to change right back out of it, it does something different... And believe me the GR 28mm is quite a bit of 28mm.

And of course, this is just my experience and opinion. My opinion is also that if Ricoh put out a true fast 50mm native cam in the same spirit, I'd probably buy it. Or, simply a rebuilt GT-1 converter... Mine is working great for 50mm(ish), but it has its drawbacks.

I love the colours and feel of that Mini shot, Burt! This is all tipping me over the edge.

@wired -- you can set the GR's Shooting Menu > Crop to deliver a 35mm (10 MB, 3936 x 2608) or 47mm (5.6 MB, 2912 x 1936) image, instead of its default 28mm (16 MB, 4928 x 3264)... and you see the cropped size in the LCD, so its like changing lenses. Haven't tried it yet -- so far, I've just walked forward when the 28mm setting was too wide... or cropped later on the computer.

Clouds after sunset on Coast Highway in Encinitas, California, today. An old gas station. Wood, no plastic or sheet metal cladding. These days, it's a store. And across the road, fog coming in at Swamis, the Self-Realization Fellowship and popular surf spot.
