Thank you for this conversion lens test!! Very useful. I've been researching a number of converters over this past week and your post has convinced me to go with Rocoh's. Two questions:

- how much does the adapter weigh?
- what about the GW2 adapter, it seems to be the more readily available online? Is that the newest model?

Any chance to post high-res or raw files on Dropbox? Would be super helpful to check out corner sharpness.

Thanks!

No problem, always like to contribute to the forum things I think others may find of some interest, so glad you found it useful

PM me your email and I can send you a full rez file

As for the weight, about 8oz or so, its a fairly solid hunk of metal and glass, and you do feel a change in balance of the camera a little bit, but nothing too bad. I have a grip on mine so it didn't really bother me.

Threads of the GW3 and the RX1 both are metal as well so I don't think there is much risk for wear/tear assuming you are careful taking it on/off. I worried a little about the weight on the lens barrel but that seems quite solid with no wobble or anything. May not have been designed for more weight than a filter on there though so use due caution, maybe not the best idea to walk around it all day etc, who knows really.

As for the GW2, I doubt it would work as it was made for a much smaller p&s style sensor. I'm frankly amazed the image circle is big enough for 35mm FF

Mixed feelings here. I like the document. The technical problem with this image make it look as old as the building. What happened?



Telling someone their image has technical problems making it seem old could be taken as a compliment these days....

Yes, I also like #1 and #2. Nothing wrong with the trees either but I found the first three more interesting.


ha, everybody has different tastes. #5 is my favorite, but it looks less interesting at websize.

sadly, #3 which i also really like doesn't enlarge well due to too narrow a dof.

Very nice Sebboh, are your BW shots straight from the camera or do you use another software like Silver EFX?

i don't shoot jpegs, but i have a couple of b&w presets in LR that i made (as well as a sepia and dual toned one). typically i shoot b&w with the camera set to b&w mode and have LR automatically apply my main b&w preset to the raw on import. then i just do a little file tweaking (or not).

I think Sony should make an RX1 marketing page solely out of Sebboh's excellent images. Surely would have to help sell quite a few cameras...

Sad. But if it is a Californian car it's probably not much rust. You rarely see cars of that age in the streets (here), as they rotted away after not too many winters during the 70's or so. And that one looks like it is a daily drive which is just awesome. Model is Monza Coupe from perhaps -62 and it can have the optional Turbo (!) fitted upon the flat-6 in the rear. And then some say Saab invented the turbo for street cars in the 70's...

Love that early body coupe though it is a true oddball in many respects.

yeah, cars do seem to last much longer here than they did in chicago. a big part of that was all the salt they put on the roads there making everything rust.

Great work everyone!
sebboh, your B&Ws are always so nice. I need to practice more with B&W processing.


Winter light scenes:



















It can be frustrating to be out on the roads this time of year. Gorgeous light and views, but usually there is nowhere to stop the car (narrow roads with walls of snow on both sides). Finally when you do find a place there's nothing interesting in sight. So, even though I usually get home with a few decent shots it's often with a feeling that I missed many much better ones.

Nice pictures all. I'm still liking the size of the RX1 allowing it to be with me so much. I come across unexpected cool things in unlikely places and I am ready to go.

An ISO 3200 wine bottle. This has zero noise reduction on Capture One... probably not a surprise to anyone, but the lack of noise still impresses me

I like the texture of the shopping cart shot, canerino. Helena; Your shots of Norway are great from both the RX1 & GR. And sebboh, the high ISO shots are impressive.

Combined with the Ricoh GR it makes for a great travel cam.

I just received the Rx1 that I bought off ebay. Had to take the camera with me when I picked up my daughter from school and stopped for a bite to eat. So many pics in this thread show a real 3D quality to the pics, and one of the first pics I took with my RX1 wide open show that same 3D effect.

Looking forward to using this little powerhouse.
