re: the mention of Leica X1/X2

I've been using my X2 an awful lot because of the stunning quality photos it makes, along with its very compact size and excellent controls, so Ricoh producing a competitor of Comparable quality can only be a good thing.

the X2 is great but does not slip into a jean or shirt pocket. It is coat pocketable at best. The GR1 and GRD have always had the same thin footprint. Great quality in that footprint is very likely the single main cause for its ongoing success. Maintaining that footprint would have been possible with a 1" sensor, not with APS. Might still be a fantastic product, but it would not be a GRD.
