The 39th GRist is Satoru Watanabe!
Mr. Watanabe has been using the successive GRs and has cooperated with us in such fields as catalog images. Check out his Youtube channel he works on currently for his talks with various professionals.
See his article on the previous GR blog too!
I have had a long relationship with GR since the film era, and even after its becoming a digital camera. I have been using it from the original GRD to the current model GR III. It's a camera that I take out when I feel like taking pictures, rather than for a particular purpose. It always helps me increase the “photo density in my blood.”
