GRD II on display in Japanese shops

From today, the GRD II is available in Japan. I went to see it at a large camera dealer at Yokohama.

What impressed me at first sight was the larger, very clear LCD-display. Significantly better than the one of the GX100.

The sales person at the shop demonstrated to me (though only on the display) that the noise produces at high ISO-settings is significantly lower than with the GRD I. However, I am no expert, so we will have to see the first raw images to be really sure about this point.

Unfortunately, the glue of the handgrip seems to be of a similar (bad) quality as in the GRD I. The rubber can be easily pulled off, as I (nearly) verified in front of the eyes of the sales assistant. So, eventually some application of superglue is to be expected also with this camera, I think. GX100 rubber sheet is attached much more firmly.
