Is the GXR line dead? I guess I am late to the party!

After seeing F Stop Fitzgerald's photos I got interested in the GXR series, but I don't see it on the Ricoh site at all. I have liked the Ricoh GR so much I have thought how great it would be to have more than one with different focal lengths like the Sigma DP series.

I would love to have a GR with a 75mm focal length. I prefer to have it with a leaf shutter not a FP shutter. I am assuming the GXR A12 mount is an FP shutter and doest benefit from the high speed flash sync like the GR does.

This also does gives me new thoughts on needing a VF for framing. I am OK without one on the GR at 28mm, but at 50mm, or 75mm I think I would need one.

My new dream system would be GXR system with an EFV for the hot shoe that will accommodate the various focal lengths.

Any chance Ricoh will build on their success with the GR? I hope so!
