I've just bought a GR3X as a pocketable companion to my K-70. So far we're getting on fine and I thought I'd share our first day out! All shot in RAW and PP in LR Classic.

2 The Motte - or Moat - which has a Camera Obscura inside. It's a 19th century gunpowder store on a 12th century moat.

Excellent selection that makes the camera look as good as the photographer ! The red dahlia is a stunner.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Looks good. The X variant is certainly the one I'd go for over the standard model if I were to go for a GR III.

Lovely set, especially the tower.

I have often thought about one of these cameras as alternative to the K-1 or iphone.

Super selection and as Peter said, the tower is especially good, but the others show the capabilities of the camera and photographer too

I don't think I could justify (to myself) the X, the earlier GRIII is a similarly good performer but obviously with a different angle of view.

They're both excellent cameras. The X is a bit more of a situational type of camera so it's very annoying to have to choose between the two. It means I take both and lose the motivation to keep switching - weak willed
All the gear with no idea

'Weak willed' comment from HarisF1 - made me laugh out loud. Immediate thought - yep, that's me as well.
Be well, stay safe, but most of all, invest in memories

Thanks for your comments. In common with all screen viewers it's difficult to see what your taking in bright light. What about a viewfinder on the hotshoe? Any of you guys got one? I was looking at a Youtube video where the presenter made one from a single-use camera, it worked for him, but is it any good without a dioptre adjustment for differing eyesights?

I have an optical viewfinder for the GRiii. It was included with my street edition and can assist framing in certain situations (when the screen is washed out) I generally do not use it apart from family shots where usually folks don't mind too much if you are in their face with a camera!!
