Ricoh’s GT-2 tele conversion lens is a 1.5X converter that attaches to the front of the Ricoh GR IIIx (when used with the GA-2 lens adapter), increasing the camera’s equivalent focal length from 40mm to 60mm.

There’s a catch, however. When attached, the GR IIIx applies in-camera cropping to output a 15MP image, compared to 24MP when using the full sensor, regardless of whether you’re shooting Raw or JPEG. This results in an effective focal length of 75mm. It’s worth noting that adapter/converter combination also makes the camera quite a bit larger – and less pocketable – when attached.
