Guy Parsons used to comment that the forever great R4 on a trip allowed him to mix it with the tourist mob as if he had just anoher point and shoot when the R4 was really a Q-ship.

Might we ask Ricoh to re-body the GR in its next incarnation as a tinplate point and shoot look alike?

The best place to hide is in the crowd.

The GR is just great in the looks department. I personally think it looks fantastic. It's understated, doesn't call attention with any super polished shiny top plate etc... and has a great 'sketch pad' point and shoot care free quality and a more serious side if you want to push things.

We just need to encourage them to seal it off from the elements.

I would probably do about 80% of a big trip on a GR but I might want some kind of 70 200mm option as well.
