    A third party seller on Amazon.com is offering the Ricoh GR body with P10 module (28-300mm, 1/2.3" sensor) for $219.95.

    The good news is that fulfillment is by Amazon, which means any customer service or returns fall under Amazon's policies and protection. Anyone with GXR experience have any opinion about the P10 module? $220 seems fairly low risk.

    i have no experience with the module, but I did research it when I had the GXR. Whatever cameras you had a year ago that you sold to get down to your current line-up were better. The only way it makes any sense is if you plan on getting the better lensors and want a zoom to go with it.

    The GXR is quite a large camera to be putting a lens module from the tiny CX series on.

    That is a very cheap way of getting a new GXR body

    Nowadays, I think that the GXR only really makes sense as a reasonably priced digital back for M-mount glass. I wouldn't buy it for the existing Ricoh lenses compared to newer stuff that can be gotten for similar cost. Take away the good design for using M-mount lenses, and it's not as good as, say, an Olympus E-PM2 or Sony NEX 5
