Ron, think of it as an outstanding 28mm eq lens with a camera attached, and the resistance will be gone. The X18/2 is $600, that seals my decision.
Outstanding b/w pics with Eric Kim, he is kinda like a celebrity now?
I know what you're saying, and if it was between the Fuji and the GR, I'd get the GR hands down because it's a much better lens and also camera. That said, I'm quite fond of my 28 Cron on FF, which when shot wide open and closer gives quite nice subject isolation that will be diminished with 18mm on APS-C... But if I didn't already have that, I'd definitely be in line for the GR. It also should be great for subjects at farther distances where you can take advantage of the deeper DOF without having to stop down so much.
Glad you liked the photos of Eric & the gang. I guess he's enough of a street photo celeb that Ricoh gave him a free GR.
