Today was such kind of the day, when you realize, that purchase of your new camera was a miss. There are things bothering me about GR II.
In reaction to Richard on Flickr I wrote my thoughts on this:
I am disappointed with that camera (despite what I wrote about it on my blog after using it for couple of days).
The camera is not so bad, but…
It is practically made to be used on the street, quiet, small ….but after shooting three weeks on the street with GR2…I feel like I lost sense of photographing this genre…it happened before and I have serious doubts again. So, for other kind of things, besides street, it is just a compact cam.
Auto-focus is slow. It focuses for ages (comparing to OMD Em-10). On contrary zone focusing is fast, of course.
Very small size … yep, despite the fact that I am fun of small cameras. As I was missing something. I can’t believe I would ever be borther by this.
I didn’t see photos yet, I think they will be ok, but the camera just feels … I can’t find correct words… that sort of disappointed and you don’t exactly know why
….maybe expectations vs reality…. I was expecting something else.
Soon, I will upload some photos from Ricoh.
Anyway, GR II is now on sale. Only three weeks of use.
I wish I didn’t sell Oly.
Boredom and fun. These girls were smashing some glass against the wall. They had fun and we talked a little.
