Still use it in 2012 !
By far the best camera I have owned. I have used cameras with better image quality, but this camera is just special. User interface has yet to be beaten. Lovely for black and white jpg.
I got a few issues with the camera : camera stuck when you press the "adj" button, lens not retracting. All got fixed for free by Ricoh, way after the warranty periode (by as far as 5 years !). BEST customer service as well.
