Hi Simon, has this issue been added to the DPR attention list ? (low priority)

It isn't an issue. At least I'd regard that term as covering bugs, things which don't operate as intended and so on.

Animated GIFs come in the category of "feature request". That's a different matter. I saw Simon's answer above, but I'm pretty sure in the past I saw a Dpreview comment that this feature was considered highly undesirable - but I don't have a reference for that, so may be mistaken.

At any rate, if it is introduced, I'd like to request the option to turn it off. That would probably require serving up two different versions of the image, depending on user preference.
