Re: 1,001 opinions ... hope they were useful (grin)

I like it. I really do. Every time I see a tourist in Timberland boots, North Face jacket, Levi jeans and a Nikon DSLR with 28-300mm "travel zoom" hanging across his chest I feel much safer. Seriously.

Ricoh does not need to re-body anything. Marginal brands are never targeted.

And excellent idea about electrical tape covering the brand.

LOL. This is Europe not South America or Syria. LOL

Best cover up your 'Timberland' boots and your 'North Face' rain jacket and rip the labels off you 'Levi's' jeans.

I can assure you you won't need any such 'photojournalist going deep and dangerous' tricks here in Europe.

Have a 'lovely' trip.

Grin, might be more a case of wondering why it was steal-worthy enough to need to be covered in tape ....

Guy Parsons used to comment that the forever great R4 on a trip allowed him to mix it with the tourist mob as if he had just anoher point and shoot when the R4 was really a Q-ship.

Might we ask Ricoh to re-body the GR in its next incarnation as a tinplate point and shoot look alike?
