    That lens barrel looks like a pipe bomb. Must be the famous 德国设计.

    I have one of the old Trioplan 100 2.8, which is nice for experiments, but 1400E for MF 100 2.8 is crazy.
    Here are example pictures from mine - www.nonchoiliev.com

A genius idea from Ricoh that needs to be improved. Loving it :)

There is right now a "Hidden" $300 off deal on the X-100T. You have to click on that link to Amazon US (Click here). Then click on the Black Fuji and you will see the real discounted price of just $999!

Digicameinfo spotted a new Ricoh GRII name registration at Postel. NO info on specs yet but usually this kind of registrations happens closely before the official announcement.

    No they won't. The 28mm is a GR trade mark from the very start. A 35mm is too old school, the GR was never a Leica pastiche like the Fuji X100. A viewfinder would be wonderful or an articulated screen.

    There is no such thing as ready... all products are constantly evolving... the 2016 version of a car will be a refinement of the 2015 version (barring a full redesign)... does that mean the car was release before it was ready? With any complex s...

    So I guess every single Fuji and Olympus camera... actually forget that; I guess every digital camera that has ever received a firmware update was 'released before it was ready'.

    There are two kinds of tech products:
    - those released before being ready, which then get significant updates
    - those released before being ready, which never get significant updates

    Nx1, luckily, belongs to the 1st ;-)
