Texting in the Sun
GRD IV, f2.5, 1/143, ISO 80, RAW
The GRD IV certainly only ever uses f2.5 in P mode unless it's way too bright or way to dark, almost all of my pictures with it are taken at f2.5. It's a strange behaviour and while it does not affect the sharpness much or DOF due to the small sensor it strikes me as odd.
On another note, the full-press AF and AF in general don't get along well with backlit scenes and suffer from the same problem as described in my GXR A12 reviews of not focusing on anything. This is something I also need to keep an eye on more.
