    Thanks B&H. I haven't been in the need to order any camera stuff. Pretty much set. I can't wait to see the results.

    And how nice of B&H Photo to accommodate!:2thumbs:

    Wow, that's quite an ambitious undertaking. It won't be easy with the different lenses, aspect ratios and ISO labeling. I'm looking forward to your impressions.

    Have fun!

    Have fun with this. I love using the cameras but completely lack the patience to do all the side by side testing...

    I envy you ... and I don't! That's a lot of gear to get through. Looking forward to the tests, and thank you for taking the time to show us the results.

    Lucky you! This is going to take you quite a while I would have thought. Your findings will be very interesting though.

    Nice set of gear :cool:

    Personally I would liked that the Ricoh GXR was included. But the lens choice with larger sensors is still too limited to be real competition.

    Lens choice is limited with Samsung and Sony as well. The main reason I couldn't include Ricoh GXR is that B&H isn't a Ricoh authorized dealer right now, and B&H provided the gear for the shootout.

    We've had a few GRD tests on the site. I have a GRD III on long-term loan from Ricoh and plan to write more about it here. Hopefully will be able to get some GXR gear from Ricoh for testing in the not-too-distant future, but I've all I can handle at the moment!
