GRiii compatibility with old GH-3 & GW-3 wide lens kit

Hi,

I own a Ricoh GR (the first APS-C model) together with a GH-3 adaptator and a GW-3 wide lens.

I am thinking sell sell the ricoh to buy the new GRiii version.

Can you tell me if the GH-3 and GW-3 will still work on it?

I find contradictory infos about this.
It seems the GH-3 wont work (too short apparently) but the GW-3 will work (with a proper longer adaptator).

I know the GW-4 would be ideal but that's plenty more money on top the GRiii

Thanks

Since you need both the adapter and the converter, why not get the adapter and try it with the gw3? I've only used the gw4 so can't comment directly on your question. But if this is not working well enough w/ the gw3, a used gw4 should pose no issues long term since there are no moving parts.

well, I was actually searching for someone who tried in order to confirm what works or not before I buy anything

I imagined some Ricoh GR addicts would have gone the same way when upgrading their camera

I own a GR and a GRIII.
I also bought a GH-3 adapter, it cannot be used on a GRIII because the GRIII mount is different from the GR's and GRII's one.

So you need a GA-1 adapter for the GRIII.

A GW-4 will fit on a GA-1 but I guess that a GW-3 will not, to be confirmed.
