    That is very impressive... Some really nice tweaks there, too such as the ability to delete raw OR jpg.

    Kudos Ricoh. Good customer care.

    Saw this over at ephotozine - applied immediately. The "High speed" AF mode is great, at least in decent light - it hunts a lot less, and as long as contrast is sufficient, it locks on in a snap. I guess the "Normal" mode is still more reliable since it checks for accuracy repeatedly, but this new mode is a very welcome addition for street shooting - apart from "Snap Focus" (prefocussing, possibly hyperfocal).

    Well done indeed! Now on to a new GR version with 26mm f/1.8 (as hinted at in another thread) - from street denizen to all-out reportage camera (not that the GR doesn't do well in that role ...).

    Very nice. And while a 40mm (equivalent) lens on a GR variant would be great, I have no problem with the 35mm crop mode. It's still about 11mp.
