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.

Chris and Jordan are out of the office this week, so we’re taking a trip in the wayback machine to feature a classic episode of DPRTV: a review of the EOS R, Canon’s first full-frame mirrorless camera.
The new Panasonic Leica 9mm F1.7 sure is tiny and cute, but is it a good choice for Micro Four Thirds users? Our team at DPReview TV has the answers.
It says Olympus on the front, but the OM System OM-1 is about the future, not the past. It may still produce 20MP files, but a quad-pixel AF Stacked CMOS sensor, 50 fps shooting with full AF and genuine, IP rated, weather sealing show OM Digital Solutions’ ambition. See what we thought.
Is the GH6 the best hybrid camera there is? Jordan has been shooting DPReview TV with the Panasonic GH6 for months, so he has plenty of experience to back up his strong opinions.
