Posted By: sagar, 03-07-2013, 12:02 PM

GXR Fire Sale at Henrys Canada

GXR Body - $124
A12 - 50mm - $249
A12 - 28mm - $274
A16 - 24-85 - $249

I think this is an awesome deal. You get your customized set for less than a price for Fuji X100s or RX100

I have a completely useless K to M mount converter. With M module I can perhaps use my K mount lenses on this thing . . . .
Been keeping my eye out for a point and shoot, couldn't resist the body/p10 module for $187 shipped. Crossing my fingers for a K mount module or maybe I'll pick up the M mount one later on.

Amazing deal! I should have waited a few more weeks!! I love my GXR A16 A12-28. Grab this camera while you call, I hope the GXR line does not go away!! Hoping for a K-mount module.

I want a k mount module too - that is why i stuck with the cheapest body/module option and skipped the better aps-c modules for the time being. I highly doubt the line is done, but if in the off chance this is a sign of the end at least I'll have a nice point and shoot and can maybe find the M module somewhere cheap down the road.

Camera arrived already! shipped friday, arrived monday...$13 for basically overnight shipping wasn't too bad. No customs fees as well. Battery is charging, I definitely like the body on first feel, can't wait to get to use it!

Received my s10 kit yesterday, and got notification that my 50mm and 28mm shipped today. I also bought the M mount kit on the weekend (out of stock, but accepting orders)....I doubt it will ship, but thought I might try.

Really haven't had a lot of time to play with it much yet, but I am very impressed with the quality of the build. Very complex and serious bit of kit. Looking forward to working with it.

I was thinking to order the s10, but I found out the p10 got a macro mode which seems to be really nice... starting to use it and its very handy camera...

The s10 has the macro mode as well...and I believe the sensor is larger, and the lens faster with the s10. p10 has a longer reach though, going up to 300mm equiv. on the long end. Honestly, I'm likely to use it more with the primes. It's pretty sweet to grab that 28mm and get DSLR quality shots, bokeh and all, in such a small package. Ricoh may (or may not) be killing this model, but honestly I think this unit could serve it's purposes as a small grab and go unit for years to come. It won't replace my DSLR, but prefect for those times you're out...don't want to lug the DSLR, and want better quality pics than what your phone can grab. I've got a 4 year old, and 9 month old, and have come to realize I need the better portability at times....as my hands are often already full.

Can't believe I missed this, that's what happens when you don't visit the forum for a while! Haha. I wonder if/when other retailers will start doing this??
