In the hand the GT-2 is compact and not too heavy; solid enough to give an impression of quality. The front filter size is 62mm which makes it large but not unwieldy when mounted to the GRIIIx using the GA-2. The camera senses when the lens is mounted so there are no settings to change. There are no do's and don'ts in the leaflet in the box but if you try to set the lens to macro with the GT-2 mounted it objects strongly and shuts down. The lens is weighty enough to necessitate a 2-handed grip when in use - not a bad thing, I think.

In terms of output, there is a noticeable increase in bokeh between the digital and optical options at equivalent focal lengths. At full stretch, with digital and optical combined it is still impressive but I see a softness creeping in. The GT-2 also appears to lose a little contrast overall, especially compared to the "bare" lens at 40mm.

Teamed with the GW-4 on the GRIII this becomes a compact and highly usable combination for street and travel.
Not a lot. See good points.
