Ben,


Two things:


1) I totally get your decision to downsize, but my own thinking in that regard has led me to consider the GR. It's so much less expensive than the RX1R and gives such excellent results, curious why you don't consider it?


2) Just noticed you're in Hampton! I'm a Hampton native living in Yorktown. Howdy!


v/r,


Rick

Well. Today actually I purchased a used Leica M8.2 with a Zeiss Planar f2 from a nice guy and I've been looking to go manual for a while! I loved the Sony's iq, but all the extra unnecessary features killed it for me. It just feels like they're all taking up space when it could be brought down to what a camera is for, at least what I use it for, taking pictures. How you do it and with what is all personal preference but all I've wanted to do is simply take pictures. I did check out the Ricoh though and was not disappointed!

Enjoy your new Leica! Too bad we won't be forming the new Hampton Roads Pentax Owners' Group.

That doesn't mean I'm not still interested! It's hard talking to anyone I know about DSLRs and rangefinders and iso and exposure compensation and aperture. The looks on their faces are like if I started speaking klingon :b
