Ricoh GR Digital II review

I bought this camera as a replacement for my Ricoh GX100. Unfortunately the shutter lag is so bad that I am going to have to return it. I figured with a non-zoom lens the shutter lag would be equal or even less than my GX100, but I was very wrong. I've used $200 p-n-s cameras that have less lag than this, and after the GX100 I am shocked that Ricoh would release a new camera that wasn't even close to the same in this area. I guess I'll have to cross my fingers and hope the GX200 (with a zoom I'll never use) is better.

Problems:

Shutter lag is horrible even on a bright sunny day.
