Since purchasing a GXR, I have become a BIG fan of Ricoh. Through several firmware updates, they have shown that they are committed to their product and care about their customers. Most companies do not provide firmware updates that add new features to their camera. They have taken a very good camera and made it better. Hopefully, these commitments will rub-off on the Pentax side of the house. Other companies should sit up and take notice of how Ricoh treats their customers.
I have already placed my order. The history and multiple filters were two items I was hoping was in the next release. Some of the new filters look interesting and looking forward to what that did to some of the current filters.
