    I think Craig will be answering the call shortly. Very soon many here will have the camera.

    Craig, you steady like a tripod. 1 sec, surely you jest. That's really IS at its very best.
    Thanks.... Mike will be excited...

    Yeah it's crazy. The first couple were quite blurred so I just took a deep breath and stood solid - again, it's indoors though so the elements were kept out!

    Craig, quick question:

    Has the GRD IV become extra noisy (vis-a-vis the GRD III)? DO you get the impression every time you turn with the camera in your hand that the lens elements have come loose and are vibrating? I wonder if I have a defective piece.

    No, I don't think it's any noisier. I have noticed that after switching it off it takes a little while before you can switch it back on again though - seemingly longer than the 3 but I haven't compared.

    I can see this Ricoh thing is not going to get any better! My wish list/must have list grows every day here. Will it be a GRD IV, 50mm A12 module, APS-C zoom or just go all out and get the M Mount module next?

    Man it's time to quit looking at this stuff for a while or at least a day, huh?

    Don, smooth pun there ;-)

    Craig, wow I'm surprised at how slow those shutter speeds are. Do you find ISO1600 to be much cleaner than ISO3200? because which such slow shutter speeds being made possible in that level of darkness, it looks like the GRD4's IS willl be a very helpful feature in keeping the ISO down indeed.

    Looks like the GRD4 moves up of my list above the 3 for now.

    1600 is much better than 3200. 3200 is better than expected but 1600 has the amount of grain I like, and use. 3200 is a little too much for me.

    Well Craig, that's what we do around here. We keep each other on our toes.
    I'm hoping that you did that shot with a slower shutter speed...
