It's not half bad for macro work, either. These are pretty heavily cropped...

FA limiteds for non-'portraits'

The FA31 is outstanding at stitched panoramas. Low distortion, edge-to-edge sharpness, and minimal vignetting really help here. It's my go-to landscape lens! Here's an example that I recently edited with the free Nik software :)

Lightroom CC publish to Flickr
Posted By PenTex

I recently upgraded from Lightroom 5 to Lightroom CC and I am having some issues publishing to Flickr.

Previously, when I added additional photos to an already-created album within the Flickr module in Lightroom, the new photos would be segregated under a "new photos to publish" section. Similarly, if I edited any photos that were already published after the fact, they would be clumped in a "modified photos to republish" group. This allowed me to publish only the new photos to the existing Album.

Now with Ligthroom CC whenever I add new photos to an Album or edit ones I've already published, they are not segregated like they used to be. Now I have to republish (re-upload) all the photos in the Album regardless of whether they were published already. This is annoying because this deletes all the comments/faves/views of that photo in Flickr as well as the privacy settings.

What am I missing here? How do I make this act like it did in Lightroom 5?

The person who replied back to your inquiry is clueless and/or is intentionally feeding you misinformation to get your business. These threads come up all the time and people try to justify their purchase or convince themselves against the advice of other posters that these "good deals" include a manufacturers warranty. Yes, the majority of people who buy gray market equipment end up never having to service their gear but why risk it? There is a list of authorized dealers on Ricoh's website. If the 3rd party Amazon seller isn't listed, then it is definitely grey market. Why don't you filter by sellers and compare the price of "sold by Amazon" to one of the 3rd party sellers. There's a reason why the ones sold by Amazon directly are more expensive...

Edit: ALSO, note that not only are you not getting a manufacturers warranty with a grey market purchase but Ricoh will most likely refuse to service your camera even if you try to pay for the repair.

'May' is legal jargon to cover their backside for a one-off exception due to a law suit. For all intents and purposes, consider gray market items not eligible for OEM warranty.

I think the moral of the story is that "deals" should be posted with clarification whether the item is gray market or not. A lot of folks aren't aware of the implications of gray market equipment and it is disingenuous to advertise a great price without mentioning the drawbacks that come with such a purchase.

You can check whether an individual lens carries a Ricoh US warranty by the serial number? News to me.

Does anyone know if Ricoh will service gray market equipment even if you try to pay for the repair? I know that Nikon service centers won't touch gray market equipment even if you send a bag of cash along with your faulty lens. This becomes an issue once your warranties expire and you want to have your 800 dollar lens serviced five years from now.

Just checked the US Ricoh authorized dealer list and 'Another Deal Site' is not listed. You most likely bought a gray market lens. Yes, Amazon will ensure your return goes smoothly but unless you're ACTUALLY buying from Amazon.com, chances are you're not buying from an authorized dealer when you shop on the Amazon marketplace. Personally, I'd rather pay the extra 60 bucks and buy from B&H for the piece of mind of having a U.S. warranty. Yes, B&H currently has the lens for $714... That should be the bigger story here.

I saw that price this morning but it was a third party seller through the Amazon marketplace. I'm going to venture to say it was a gray market lens with no U.S. warranty.

Look up a review for your particular lens, reference the resolution test charts, and shoot at the aperture that provides best resolution.

Germany Trip - Thoughts on Lens Combo?

I was in Germany and some neighboring countries over the winter holidays and was well served by my 18-135 WR and FA 31 Limited. I got rain and snowed on multiple times and kept happily snapping pictures with the weather sealed setup. Once the sun went down or when indoors I switched over to the prime and kept on trucking.
