|My Ricoh GR Sensor ooouch|
I had trouble recently with my Leica Q and dust on the sensor. So for thrills I thought I would check out the Ricoh GR ....holy crap what a disappointing surprise. It was a crazy how much dust was on my Ricoh, the real dilemma is to get the sensor cleaned ??? or just purchase a new Camera.
Like many I am waiting to see what Ricoh will be offering as a replacement to the current Ricoh GR(2). The last upgrade was a major disappointment to say the least. I am thinking this next generation will be a big step in the right direction. 'Rumor' has it that may not be to far off, with another price drop this week signs would indicate just that.
So until then i will be sitting back and waiting patently before embarking on any repair or sale strategy. Before you say anything, YES I tried and reviewed the Fujifilm X70, nice in many ways but for me, not a Ricoh GR replacement. Nice try Fujifilm, but perhaps when making such a polarized camera for GR Shooters in future ... leave the Pro-sumer carp in the test room ... swivel screen for FUCK SAKE.
