GR III five months after release: Issues, robustness for jogging?

Now that the GR III has been out for about five months, I wonder if Ricoh has ironed out any of initial issues and how the product has matured?

I know that a firmware update improved autofocusing somewhat. But initially there were reports of wobbly buttons, overheating, loose tolerances, rattling, rings falling off, dust, connectivity issues, etc. Have there been improvements as production has come up to speed, and are current cameras generally of an acceptable quality?

Furthermore, I am concerned about the robustness for taking the camera out for a brisk walk or even jogging. I know the IBIS system may intentionally be designed to be loose internally and exhibit some rattling. But has this been found to be any problem and a cause for handling the camera in any more delicate way than others?
