1" grd may not happen

Well, every Ricoh lover has been drooling over the prospect of the rx100 sensor making into the next grd..very understandable.

I just want to remind you that Sony (which is ricoh's sensor supplier) seems to have developed a new generation of 1 / 1.7 " sensor, and the new nikon coolpix 7700 seems to have that sensor already...
Now, for 1" sensor wishers, this can be bad news....

Much less incentive to tackle the challenges of a new lens design and a new body...grd5 might just be another upgrade a-la- grd4... Not that this is particularly awful, but you might as well prepare yourself if you are craving a larger sensor for grd line.

I just stumbled across this new Sony and I'll be damned if it ain't serious competition to the GRD4! For those who have been complaining about fixed lens and small sensor size, check this out.
