    Our recent holiday to the Bay of Naples resulted in my taking along my by now usual setup for hols; the X-Pro1 and a lens or three, and my trusty Ricoh GR.

    A combination of the excessive heat and the fact that our hotel was at the top of a hill on the outskirts of Sorrento meant that the GR got more of an outing than it usually does; even the relatively svelte X-Pro was just too much to carry on more than one occasion. We took in the sights of Positano, Pompeii, Capri and Sorrento itself - Naples is for another day...

    Not too far from Philly
    you should be able to figure it out...
    Lovely stuff Bill. One of my favorite places, although mostly the south side of that little peninsula - ie, Positano, Praiano, Amalfi, Ravello, etc. Sorrento and Capri are really nice as well. And Naples a big teeming city with all of the good and bad that implies...

    Thank you all for your very kind comments. The GR is a stellar performer - especially for in-the-moment mono - and a real bargain at present. I'm not even remotely tempted by the recent "upgrade" - I have high hopes for the future but it will take a lot to prise my current GR from my hands, due to it's killer combination of compactness and capability.
