Hope has better dust control than prior GRDs. Cheers

Streetutopia: For me it all comes down to image quality. I am axious to see some sample images. This could be intesting with the low-pass filter eliminated.

completely concur - it's the total package that matters. Let's hope NK has resolved some of the other issues with the D7000, AF consistency across lenses, and periodic overexposure in bright light. Too bad nothing done to resolve the small cache, especially with larger file size, which limited burst duration for moving subjects. Let's see how the LP filter works out. Cheers

Fraser Smith: I wonder if it too will start to fall apart after a couple of years, just like my GRD III and just in time for the release of the GRD V?

Sorry, no sale Ricoh. Too little, too late, once bitten twice shy.

I've had a very lightly used original GRD for many years and although I like the camera very much for its real strength, which is user controls, there's certainly no reason to overpraise its reliability. It has had its share of issues, consistent with what others report, and not user abuse. I accept it as a hidden cost of the technology, and this is where customer service, a little discussed topic on this forum, comes into play. These things become obsolete, sometimes simply because they no longer function reliably, and hopefully you've gotten some decent use out of them in the meantime. Cheers, Brian.
