Going to Tokyo to buy a Ricoh GRD III
Aug 16, 2009

I'm going to Tokyo just to buy a Ricoh GRD III. And then I'm going to climb Mt. Fuji the next day and take photos. I'll be floating up the trail with the weight savings compared to my D700 and lenses. I also plan on doing some night street photography in Ginza. I can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Only question I have... how readily available are GRD III's in Tokyo? Are they backordered? Any recommendations for a camera store? This will be my first time in Tokyo.

I just realized that I've purchased every version of the GRD. I love this series of cameras and from what I've seen, the GRDIII is the best yet (unlike the GRDII which was a mixed bag)! They have answered all of our calls for faster full press release and lower noise. The only thing they didn't do is get the rear rocker switch back into an actual dial like the original one had.
