Re: Replace earlier model GR with GR III?

If you have a well-functioning GR or GR II now, what do you think about replacing it with a GR III? And when?

An interesting question.

I didn't had a GR or GR III or any other Ricoh (my Pentax cameras don't count), but I did choose between buying a (less expensive) GR II or the III.

It wasn't a difficult choice: I like having image stabilization in all my lenses (and, being a Pentaxian, I knew how it works). Then there's the new sensor (expected it would work as well as on a Pentax K-70 or KP), and nice touches everywhere (fast start-up, fast operation, card writes, USB-C charging...) due to the fact that it's a new camera.

Unfortunately I can't really compare the interface changes; all I know is that the GR III's works well for me - and the touch screen is a nice addition.

Sorry, I guess I can only say which was the more desirable camera...
