Top Customer Reviews
I admittedly don't use this lens very often. I like being able to carry the GR in a pocket. But this lens does expand the capability of the GR cameras and I like the look of photos done with it. When attached to the camera (you'll need to acquire the Ricoh GH-3 adapter to use the GW-3 and that adds more bulkiness), you will probably carry the camera in hand. Or maybe use a small shoulder bag. Personally, I don't use the included rubber lens hood. It's sort of goofy feeling, being flexible and floppy. I just attach a thin B+W UV filter and shade with my hand if flare becomes a problem. It's simple to use your left hand for a lens shade with the GR since the camera is so easily manipulated with just the right hand.
I've owned a few 20/21mm lenses and 20/21mm equivalent lenses over the years. The GW-3 is as good as I've ever used, including comparing it to the outstanding current Fujinon 14/2.8 lens for Fuji's X series cameras.
It's a little unwieldy when attached to the GR but I doubt you'll complain about that when you look at the photos.
- Still sharp!
- Rather huge viewing angle, as wide as I could imagine using myself (21mm effective)
- Price to quality ratio is great
- Weighs as much as the camera, when attached and held in hand it feels like the camera pulls forward
- Mild vignetting
- Makes the GR-ii unable to fit in my pocket
This maintains the quality of the GR-ii while adding a wide field of view at the cost of less portability and added weight. The lens can easily be carried without being attached to the camera though. I think it's a must own for GR owners.
