Renting a GR again to see if the FW 4 has improved the AF to my satisfaction. Love the size, handling, pop-up flash, and most of all IQ of the GR, but previously just had too low of keeper rate (especially in lower light) where the AF would confirm a lock but then be misfocused.
Wasn't every shot, but enough to be annoying, much like the Fuji X100 was.
Hopefully 3rd time is the charm and I can pick one up this week, while the nicely priced bundles are still being offered. I wouldn't otherwise buy the OVF, but if they...Show more →
2nd time around is working better for me. The FW has improved the AF enough for me and it's liberating carrying it around again. I ordered the bag for it coming from Japan, so I'm hoping it'll be sufficient enough as a small bag for the GR, my filters, and accessories (extra batteries, remote release, etc).
It's such a nice camera that it's put my a7 on the sideline because even that is too bulky to carry. I've actually started to contemplate using my GR as a main walk around camera and using a system camera for a backup/speciality. And if I'm going to use a system camera as a backup, might as well fill the niche that I need it to (super fast AF/tracking) for my growing daughter so I'm starting to consider returning to a DSLR.
I took my daughter to B&N and was able to get some great pictures if her playing around that I would never be able to take a ILC, even an a7 or a m4/3 camera too. The silent shutter, sleek black appearance, and sharp lens WO makes me very happy. Only thing I could really hope for is wifi to transfer quickly to my iPhone for quick uploads but I could always get an eye fi card.
