I take great pride and comfort in having a “brother in arms” with the GR as well. This time my great friend Zun Lee. Long time readers of this blog will surely recognize him as my first interviewee in the Togs Series. A couple of years I had this to say about his photography:
Every once in a while something truly special happens. It can be an encounter with an old friend, a chat with your special loved one, or perhaps meeting someone new. Well, I had such a moment a few months ago when I discovered the work of Zun Lee over on Flickr. I’ve perused a multitude of streams and some have left me in awe but yet others have left an indelible impression on me — such is the power behind the images of Zun Lee. Folks, today Tog Series is proud to inaugurate with an amazing street photographer — Zun Lee.
Well, its been about 2 years since that statement and today I still feel the same way. Zun has been published in the New York Times and has a long list of accomplishments and he recently had to this say about the Ricoh GR:
As promised, some quick thoughts on the Pentax-Ricoh GR. For me, it’s the best street shooting tool I’ve had thus far. The APS-C sensor’s size and quality really make a difference and the GR is definitely more than just an upgrade from the GRD4. This beast is now a wonderful all-around tool for just about any kind of purpose, if its 28mm focal length agrees with you.
