Hang In There
GR, f9.0, 1/320, ISO 100, RAW, 21mm
Received my 21mm adapter and went out for a walk to take pictures and see how it works. It works really well, although this picture is probably not the best to showcase this.
There are some problems, in mainly Ricoh cutting corners and not having the GR auto-detect the adapter as the previous GRDs have done. This is very frustrating as you constantly have to go into the menu and manually switch the adapter on and off once you remove it. Not a huge issue as te only thing that changed is the EXIF data but annoying nonetheless and unnecessary as Ricoh had it working fine before.
The quality however is very good and the adapter is actually smaller and lighter than I thought and not all that much bigger than the GW-2 adapter.
More pictures and impressions in the coming days.
